sweet pea

This is modified Butterick 4173.  I changed the pants so they have no side seams (as described in KSSFK), as to not interrupt the border print.  I also used a bias facing (from instructions in Sew Beautiful Magazine) instead of the standard facing.  I really like the bias facing, IMO it looks more professional.  The length of the top was cut between the pattern’s top and dress lengths.

The fabric is from Daisy Kingdom, a border print and a co-coordinating all over print.  I used the large border print along the hem on the pants and used the small border from the other selvage as the ruffle on the top.
