I finally found a shirt I wanted to use, but it was a men's XXL.  Oh well, my angel got a cute dress & a cute top with matching capris.



From the scraps I had enough for this:

How adorable! Both the outfit and your daughter! How creative, and a great way to use all that fabric!

Thanks guys.  I was really happy with the way the capri set turned out.  About halfway though I was afraid it wasn't going to happen.  I suddenly realized that I didn't have enough of the print to go around her hips. (How did I measure that wrong?)
Once I found the solid black fabric to put in, I was set.  Well, ok, I had to rip a couple seams about 4 times, but it finally worked.  Smiley
And she loves it so that's really what matters.
