I'd love for you to meet my friend Liberty of Liberty Originals. She lives near me and we became friends because of the mutual enjoyment of sewing. She has wonderful talent and has recently opened an Etsy shop to sell some of her creations.
Liberty made this 'back to school' outfit for her daughter to wear on her first day of 2nd grade.
Skirt fashioned from Simplicity pattern #4206 with modifications. Fabrics are by designer Amy Butler
