Ok cute cute cute idea! Love em. My daughter and her best friend would love these! By themselves in summer or layered during cooler weather, these would be perfect! These are going in the "ooo cool idea" folder! Smiley

What a great start for a newbie to sewing. The girls look like they are really enjoying your work, too.
Beware: it will quickly become addicting and fabric will become an obsession. And if you start doing clothing "recons"...reconstructing one garment into another...it will never end! lol

Too cute! Love these kind of "finds" that result in something great for very little $$.

Very very cool! I may have to make some like this for my nephew who is turning two in July. My SIL would LOVE these!

Thanks all.  Grin
Yes feel free to use any of the design you like! Its not mine to own...I have cruised and borrowed ideas from here on Craftster and blogs and such and just pulled together the outfit to suit.
Oh trust me I won't "iron" it (press it that is).I meant hitting it with steam! I have a heavy duty Rowenta steam iron that I was referring to for the shirring. Smiley

I have a 15 year old and the 5 month old. Thankfully, my older daughter loves to pick out cool outfits for us to make (Japanese Lolly style, steampunk or costumes) so I get to make clothes for both. I just bought a second machine ($300 basic Viking...love my Vikings!) to help give her more extensive sewing lessons We also enjoy the Ren Faire and to have parties with themes and costumes. It allows us to fully exercise our creative sides!

I think like with most things, the more you do it the faster you will get. You will learn short cuts, etc.
When I go to cut, unless the fabric is slippery I do minimal pinning. I tend to use VCR tapes to weight fabric down and use a rotary cutter and mat. For the more precise parts, I use scissors. I might use a "few" pins. I only pin quickly, or baste as I need to (necklines, matching for sleeves, etc.).

I love my serger...it helps speed things up greatly!

Very cute and clever! I hope I will never need to personally implement its use, but I will keep this filed away just in case or for a friend. My 5 month old is a bit of a thumb sucker/nommer...but I think its more teething than anything. Smiley
