I made these for my daughter's using instructions for parksbird patterns. These are my first pillowcase dresses. I got the 2 pillowcases for .69 a piece and the white sheet I made the peasant dress is one I had - (it is under the yellow pillowcase dress). I did buy the denim fabric- it was 3.99 a yard on sale. but still a great deal and it only took 3/4 a yard.
It has been so long since I finished an outfit for any of my kiddos! But today I finished this outfit for my 8 yr old. I had finished the shirt for her to wear on the 4th of July to match her Molly Doll's outfit I had made. The skirt I finished today. I used simplicity pattern #4613 for the tank and the skirt I wish I had made the yoke on the skirt a bit shorter but she likes it. The skirt has a built in knit short underneath. I also added one extra layer of ruffle (the blue pattern) the doll's outfit is made from simplicity #4347

Thanks for looking, I have been so inspired by everyone else's projects
Love this forum- so cool to see all the spiffed up projects. I wanted to share the jeans I made for my little boy out of the legs from some too small jeans from my big boy.
I basically cut the legs from a size 12 pair of jeans to the length of a fav pair of my younger boys pants (about a size 5/6) adding 2 inch for waist. then I used the same pants to draw on the crotch seam on the the s legs. put the legs inside each other right sides facing and sewed the crotch seam. then just added a elastic waist. when I cut the legs off the original pair I kept the original bottom seams. I also cut the pockets and some of the belt loops and the "Levi" tag from the original jeans and added them to the legs. My little guy loves them.
