|Then using 1/8 inch elastic make a little loop.|
|You are going to pin right sides together of your two bodice pieces but put the loop so the loop side is on the inside at the top of the slit you made (where the pin is in the picture)|
|Then you will sew around the neckline and turn the piece right side out. Top stitch if you like.|
|Then with right sides together I added the sleeves to the bodice.|
|Then sew right sides together along the side seams of the skirt part. Then with right sides together sew the skirt to the bodice. Hem the bottom.|
|Lastly for some pops of green I added a green button for the back closure. (hence the elastic loop)|
|Then I added red silk flower (tutorial here) and in the center I put a green wool fabric covered button)|
|Done! It is simple, comfy and casual while being very festive.|
|I love the pop of color in back as well.|
|Worn over some jeans and you have a completely casual holly jolly look, add some tights and you have a dressed up look!
