Sewing: Patriotic Prairie Bloomers and Blouse for Pioneer Day

The Strawberry Bloomers turned out so cute I wanted to do some more. So I made a little playset for Audrey with bloomers and blouse in more Moda Prairie Paisley fabric. I was saving the red Indienne fabric for a dress for myself but sacrified some for this top because I thought it would be too cute and fun for Audrey to wear. (I still may have enough for myself, we'll see.) I need to make a pattern for this blouse so I can do it easily again--I love it.

We celebrate the 24th of July as Pioneer Day in Utah, with flags and fireworks, so I added stars to the back instead of the pocket on the original version of the bloomers.

I love the fullness of the bloomers and blouse--perfect for a little girl. If only mine would hold still!

So beautiful! That is one of my favorite prints and I have a ton of the ticking scraps as it was one of my least favorite. I think I may have to whip some up!
