22 Raglan Remix and Linen Dress Link Up

I'm pretty jazzed about this outfit.
My inspiration for the dress was a skirt Karen had made. Without sacrificing the graphics of the fabric, she used the selvedge edge as the hem of her skirt.
Brilliant. Just brilliant.
For the top, I actually saw this picture(above) on the KCWC Community Board on Pinterest a while back. If there was one in my size, I'd sooo have it.
For the top, I altered my raglan tee pattern that I made from Jess' Raglan Tee Tutorial. The main fabric is organic french terry knit. Okay... can I just tell you how delicious this fabric is? It's sooo soft, like you've had it for years. My only gripe is I wish I bought more.
Fall here is a mix bag. One day it can be cold, the next hot, wet then dry... you get the picture. So it's always wise to dress in layers. 
The dress is a simple pattern I made using Lala's camisole. See the bottom edge on the skirt? Yah...cool. For the fabric, I used linen. You can still wear linen in the fall right? Eeesh... I just don't want the fashion police after my child. *wink*
Today is Lala's special day... she turns 2 today.
YAY!
YIPPEE!
YAHOO!
My baby turns 2!
I'll see you at One Little Momma's and Mama Loves Papa link up...
Have a fabulous Wednesday friends!

  1. Great post- and guess what? That picture of that top on the little girl... you mentioned it came in your size you would get it. It's from All Saints. I have that light sweater top in an oatmeal colour. All Saints used to do a kids range with the adult stuff in smaller sizes. They stopped it, but the adult stuff is still on the go and very beautiful.
