Ella's taste in fabric is really changing and I am surprised at her emerging sophistication. Lantern Bloom was perfect for her and this Vicki blouse showcases how lovely the print looks sewn into garments even for children.
I was also surprised how wonderful the Farbenmix Waterlily ribbon went together with Laura's Citron colorway in the Lantern Bloom line.
To go with the blouse I made Tulip Pants from the Ottobre Autumn 2009 issue (available from the woolythread). I was lazy and did not do a zipper fly but took the easy way out and made a mock fly with an elastic waistband, plus I didn't sew belt loops or the back pockets. The fit of the Tulip pants is perfect, definitely give them a try!
Lantern Bloom is on sale now :)
Have a fantastic weekend!!
