4th of July Shirt

With the leftover ric-rac from this project I decided to make a coordinating shirt.
I used the bodice piece of the neapolitan dress pattern from Sachiko at the Tea Rose Home. (Can you tell that I really like this pattern right now?)
I had my little girl try the shirt on and realized that it was too long so I flipped up 2 inches and added an elastic to cinch it in to make a drop waist shirt.
Using the leftover ric-rac from the skirt I sewed on the red ric-rac.
Then I sewed on the white ric-rac.
I debated what to do with the blue, but ended up just making a ric-rac flower.
I started on the outside edge of the flower and zig-zagged stitched as I folded and turned until I got to the center.
Another 4th of July outfit complete.

Check out the outfit I stitched up last year if you love ruffles.
