I am not sewing nearly as many cute things for her as I would like.  My granddaughter just isn't thrilled with playing in the playpen in my sewing room. 

Anyway here are a couple of things I made for her for the fall.  She wore this first peasant top to the Harvest Fest at our church.  I added a couple of rows of elastic shirring to the middle after this picture and it turned out cute.



Okay here's a couple of pics of her wearing this shirt.  She isn't walking yet so my husband is trying to encourage her to take a few steps in the second one.





This is the outfit that she will wear for Thanksgiving.  We will have a Thanksgiving dinner on Tuesday at church and then she will go to her other grandparents' house on Thursday so she will get to wear this one more than once (Yea for that part!)  It is a little unstructured jacket and a pair of pants with cuffs that match the jacket trim.  I'm hoping to make another peasant blouse to match but if I can't get that done then she'll wear a long sleeved cream tee with it.



My little model is sleeping right now but I'll try to add pics of her wearing this stuff later on.  Thanks for looking everyone! Smiley

And here's the Thanksgiving outfit.  Nothing like finishing at the last minute -- I finished at about 1:30 and she is leaving here at 3:00! LOL

The jeans and the peasant shirt.  I made it longer like a tunic.





And with the jacket.  I love how the jacket is shorter than the shirt so it looks like a double ruffle on the bottom.



She's really getting into the fall spirit and throwing some leaves around in this one. Smiley

Gorgeous - and not pink, so extra cool!  With a new baby girl, I grow weary of pink.  Orange is way cuter on little girls!

What is the leaf fabric in the jacket?

Thanks ya'll!  I thought I was getting some pics of her this morning but the card wasn't in the camera.  Tongue  Maybe I'll get some later on.

All of the print fabrics are from the Pumpkins Gone Wild line from Moda.  I really like that it is a fall fabric but isn't Halloween specific.  We don't celebrate Halloween and I had a hard time finding something for fall that was for kids.

They look fabulous!  I really like the coat over the peasant top too, they sit perfectly together!

Thanks so much!  She wore them on Thanksgiving Day and she looked so cute.  And she didn't even get any food on them when she ate! LOL
