While GanddaughterStitches was here this summer, I proposed making something for her to wear. She said she'd like to have a skirt, so we "went shopping" in my stash. And she chose a fabric which has many different colors in striations, one of my favorite fabrics.
I made a simple gathered skirt, and she loved it.
Then, after she left to go back home, I thought I'd take the fabric leftovers to make something to go with her skirt. In town I found a shirt with our town's name on it.
I didn't have a lot of fabric left over, but I had enough to add a little ruffle to the t-shirt sleeves. I hemmed the edges with a little decorative stitch. It's fun to use those stitches once in a while!
Because the fabric is extremely variegated, the two sleeve ruffles ended up being different.
But that's ok. As DaughterStitches would say, "It is what it is."
And here is GranddaughterStitches with her complete ensemble.
