Outfit for my Niece!

COOL! The outfit I made for my niece fits and she loves it!!!!!!!!!Oh! She is so CUTE!!!!!!!! She loved the chance to sport her new boots! The Tee is Gertie's Sweetheart tee! I used a great soft bamboo knit which she loves! 
This totally cool Tee is from Gertie's new book "Gertie Sews Vintage Casual" which you can find on her blog or on Amazon http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/. This book is amazing! TONS of great information, excellent drawings, photos, plus 10 different patterns in the back of the book which are all pretty easy. She then gives 4 or 5 different ways to alter each pattern which really gives you 34 patterns!!!!!!!! Gertie's first book "Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing" is also great and inspirational but seems like it is for more advanced sewing that I have not reached yet.
 The Skirt is the Mabel from Colette Patterns https://www.colettepatterns.com/sewing/mabel.
 The leggings are the Oh La Leggings from Papercut Patterns papercutpatterns.com/.We Both agree that the sew lines of the leggings DO NOT WORK with the mabel! Oh well she will wear them with other things!

Could echo an ancestor,
And the look of us stir
Recognition of belonging
That is ours alone;"
