I made this outfit for my niece, Libby, for Christmas. The patterns were all from Ottobre magazine, the fall 2010 issue. There was a cute bubble skirt with a machine-embroidered mushroom on it, a blouse with pin tucks, and a velour jacket to go with the skirt and blouse.
It was my first attempt at machine embroidery. I put a piece of stabilizer under the fabric while I stitched the lines of the mushroom, and that helped a lot. It was pretty easy and didn't require a fancy machine, as the only stitch required was a straight stitch.
The blouse fabric is Liberty Tana lawn. I had a blouse that I made for myself out of it, but I never wore it, so I took it apart to make a smaller blouse.
Here's the jacket on Libby:
