  5. You look gorgeous! Your hair looks just perfect! How do you style it? Can you make a tutorial, please?


  6. So so gorgeous! I LOVE your skirt :) And your hair looks amazing :)

    This makes me look forward to summer!

  7. Thank you so much for the kind words!

    I've worn both blouses several times already and will probably make up this pattern again--it's a favorite now!

    Ruby--a hair tutorial is in the works, so stay tuned :-)

  11. Such a beautiful outfit! :) I'm definitely loving the peasant blouse; I have a similar pattern in the stash, but haven't made it yet--but you've inspired me to maybe try and fit it in before summer ends!

  12. Thank you, Casey!

    I have to say, peasant blouses are very satisfying to make, as they sew up so quickly. They are wonderfully flattering, too! I can't wait to see your creation :-)
