Halter & Capri Set

My girls call have always called capri pants
"capr-easies".
Liv is modeling a pair that are just that, breezy capr-easies... I feel in love with this retro fruit fabric from Joann's and knew I had this checked sheet from a recent thrifting.

I tried a new style of halter top and used vintage bias tape as the ties, not sure if I love it or not yet. There's a nice big ruffle of eyelet that doesn't really show that adds a big pouf to the top. Only little gals can get away with so much fabric and ruffles!! The pattern is for a size 5 and Liv is a size 6-6x & it fits perfectly, and I've been informed that it's a keeper. I did all French seams which usually takes it down a size so this pattern must run really big. I still need to sew a few buttons to finish it off. And may take the girls for a photo op at a local gazebo for some better quality pictures. I need to get serious about selling my stuff and my cell phone camera just doesn't cut it!
