Lisette for Butterick 6183 top and cropped pants

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my Bloglovin’ feed. Thanks for visiting! Another version of Lisette 6183 for y’all. I guess I couldn’t get enough of these cropped pants!

Class Picnic Blouse and Shorts and summer ramblings

I made this little outfit back in early June and never blogged it. G recently turned eight and shot up in height, but has yet to be filled in. I sewed a size seven, but should have made a six instead, as the whole outfit is a little too big. I used some vintage barkcloth […]
