This was my first project where I came up with an idea and made most of it without the help of a tutorial.  This is also my first pair of bloomers with ruffles!  It really didn't turn out the way I imagined it (all that was similar was the fabrics), but it did turn out to be a cute outfit for E.  So for those reasons I'm proud of it.

I decided to make my daughter an outfit inspired by Kaylee from Firefly and Serenity.  It doesn't really look like anything Kaylee wore on the show, but it really was inspired by her.  I put the whole back story, like how it would have had a third piece and why I didn't want to do a jumpsuit,  here on my blog. http://chimpsgomoo.wordpress.com/2009/10/01/fireflyserenity-kaylee-inspired-toddler-outfit/



This is one of the few projects I've made from store bought material.  It was nerve-wracking!



If you've seen other garments I've made for E you probably recognize the boots.  She loves those things and although I always give her choices she almost always picks these!

Thanks for looking, lots more photos on the blog.

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

Oh I'm so glad you can see some Kaylee in this!  I totally love her dress from Shindig (http://still-flying.net/images/shindig/index.php?image=shindig143.jpg) , it's on my list, I want to do a whole "line" of Kaylee inspired clothes for my daughter lol
