The Drama Queen and her new outfit!

This year I have decided that I am going to master the art of making clothes. Luckily I have this wonderful niece who is willing to humor me and let me use her as a guinea pig. She is tall, skinny and gorgeous...who could ask for a better model? For Christmas, I made her a skirt and crop sweatshirt. I thought the skirt turned out really cute. The sweatshirt was another story. She went to try it on and could barely get it to fit. It was almost too tight to get her arms in it and WAAAAY too short. So, I reworked the outfit and made this crop vest to go with it. I know you can't tell from the picture, but it is lined with a floral turquoise knit. It was so easy to make and I like it even better than the original I guess that worked out for the best. Now on to the next outfit...

Also, I made her a coat and hat, but you will have to check back for those pictures. I had a minor disagreement with my sewing machine over the button holes and thought it would be best if we spent a day apart before trying it again. Hopefully I will have it done before the end of the week.
