Thanks for the compliments everyone! Smiley  Now let me see if I can answer some questions.

so cute!  where o where did you get this fabric!!!!!!!11?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The fabric is by Alexander Henry from the Tillbrook collection.  I got mine from an Etsy seller but if you just do a  google search, you can find it lots of places.

The outfit fits the model too much for perfection!! Kudos to the good work!

Are the shoulder straps elasticised???

They are elasticized.  I do the straps and then make a little casing for the elastic to go through.  You can make then like this without the ruffle too.

Did you make the pants or embellish an existing pair?  The ruffle doesn't look like you had to mess with all the bulk you usually find at the bottom of a pair of jeans...
So I guess my real question is how you attached the ruffle...

I embellished a pair of Children's Corner jeans.  I cut the bottom off after I figured out how long I wanted the ruffle.  Then I ripped out the side seams so I could get them flat to sew on the rick rack and the ruffle and do the applique.  Then I sewed the side seams up when I was finished adding everything.

If you have any more questions, just ask.  And thanks for looking everyone! Smiley

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.
