Yellow Tulips and the Spring Giveaway Winner!

Flashback Summer- Yellow Tulips 1940s outfit, Butterick 9779

I finished this outfit in the past couple days, and I like it a lot!   I took an old shirt of my  mom's and turned it into this one, then I embroidered some yellow tulips on the front and back.  I really love embroidery on clothing.  It makes it unique, well-crafted, and just beautiful!  It turned out to be a perfect outfit for the day because it was quite warm, but later that night we had giant storms all evening!  It actually worked out though, because most of my hair was in a scarf or pinned down and the 'do was really hardy!
I did not, however, feel the need to iron them.... I took these pictures right before getting in the car to drive for four hours, so I thought it would be a bit pointless.  My friend Teresa and I went to go see her daughter in a theater production.  It was quite fun!
