I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Sandi Henderson‘s Ginger Blossom fabric, and was so excited to be able to join an Etsy launch revolving around it. Just one little problem.

I didn’t know what to make with it.

I had plenty of ideas, but nothing that seemed to be perfect. And the clock was ticking. Finally, inspiration struck — and not a minute too soon, since I needed to get my listing up today. I spent all day making my idea a reality, then had to bribe Miss L to get the pictures done.

It’s a three-piece outfit with a skirt, pants and top. The ruffled pants are a beautiful, soft white cotton. I want a pair for me! I used the same cotton for the underskirt of the top; the bodice and overskirt are a pretty Swiss dot, very light and airy. I wanted something subtle to mix with the bold prints of the skirt, and also something really versatile and suitable for spring and summer.

The skirt uses two of the Caribe prints from the Ginger Blossom line. I really like how the two play off each other. The colors are so vivid and pretty, with kind of a retro feel to the prints. I’m thinking I need to pick up the Blush colorway to make a coordinating skirt for me!

We had fun mixing and matching the three pieces during our little photo shoot this afternoon. I like the different options and how it changes up the look so much by just using two pieces instead of all three. (I think the all-white pieces would look beautiful for pictures at the beach!)

    This is such a lovely little outfit. And that fabric is so pretty.

    This past week I’ve been struggling to finish a shirt. Or I should say start. I’m sort of stalled. But wow look at everything you’ve made! That’s got me going again. 🙂

    Thank you! I decided to try and do something normal, since I’ve been feeling horrible for the last two days, so I came here to see some of your beautiful pictures and WOW! I love that! It is absolutely PERFECT! That band of wonderful color! You made me smile! Of course your precious comments always do, but you made me smile when all I want to do is cry. Thanks. xoxox Samantha
