I threw my Mom a Birthday Party last month. I had a peacock theme in mind but I didn't want to overdo it and make it feel too much. So I thought besides a few small decorations with peacock feathers and a little stack of cute peacock napkins I kept it simple. Then I had to make somthing to wear that quietly said "peacock". Everyone loved the outfit and I wish I had remembered to take a photo before the festivities started. But life gets in the way sometimes.
On the top row is Myself & Girl M, next row down is my Mom's SIL & her DIL, next row down is my Favorite Aunt (Mom's Sister) and Lady K (my DIL), bottom row is My Mom and her DIL.
Mom enjoyed being pampered for the day, and is still recovering from a fall in May that resulted in her breaking her ankle just a month after finishing her last radiation treatment for breast cancer for the third time. She needed a day to know how much she is loved!
I made the McCall 7193 in a ITY knit again. This top is classy looking and so very easy to whip up in a hurry. The blueberry color is perfect with the crazy print of the the wide legged pants I made.
For the pants I made up Girl M's favorite wide legged pants from the Butterick 4807. I did have to take in the seams by 1" for a little slimmer fit. I also shortened the length by 1" so I wouldn't be walking on the hems.
