Quite Contrary outfit for Shelby....

 That's the name of the fabric. I did a fabric swap/challenge on one of my forums, and my swap partner, Leslie, sent me this fabric. I just loved it, and it didn't take me long to figure out how to make an outfit that would showcase the fabric.
  I had recently reorganized my Sew Beautiful magazines, and I ran across a darling pattern in Issue #107 called Haley's Halter and Capris.
  The article showed 2 versions, and I chose to do the one with the rick rack instead of smocking.
 I love the capri pattern as it is slimmer than most patterns.

The back has 2 rows of elastic, and I like that since it's a halter style. The elastic will help to keep the top fitting snugly.
  I will probably give it to Shelby for her birthday in April so I won't be able to get pics of her modeling it just yet. I'm about to start working on some more spring/summer things.
 We are having some new flooring put down and that will put me behind about a week, but it's got to be done.

Have a blessed day!

What PRETTY fabrics, Shirley...you hit the jackpot!
I made this same pattern outfit for Ms. C. two years ago. I think she can still wear it, due to the elastic & the fact that she is just getting taller, not wider.
Its nice to see your beautiful work again.
hugs,
