Petites Marines by LilyandEbony

Under the shadow of Sacre Coeur in Paris lies the lively fabric sellers quarter. When I was visiting there last summer I found this fabulous piece of fabric flapping in the breeze. It is made in France, all cotton, and a little heavier than our regular quilting weight goods. I paired it with a no wrinkle white faux linen for the pants, a cute royal blue nautical stripe for trim and ruffle and yards of bright white rope piping. The peasant blouse is made of summer weight gauze with elastic shirring at the neck and sleeves. Matching hairbows included. Can also be worn without the blouse under. Double anchor buttons at the straps.

This custom set includes the tunic length top, the elastic waist pants, the peasant blouse and the hairbow pair. Custom made by LilyandEbony in sizes 2-6. Sewn in labels.
Each item is handmade. Attention is given to selection of fabrics, colors and design. All seams are serge finished.
We live in a smoke free environment.
