My oldest daughter went with me to the fabric store and she picked a fabric she liked to make a shirt for her.



But after the shirt was done she said: "Mam, now make anotherone for my sister!" What is mom to do? The child is fair so I have to be as well, right? So here is a tunic for the little one:



And here they are together - that might not be the only time they might want to dress alike since they are both girls and less than 1,5 year apart but still - they like it now so let it be:



No pattern, all is "freehand"Wink hope you like it.

Adorable.  My girls are four years apart and I'm going crazy trying to dress them alike while I still can.  Wink

Great Job!  How did you do the little ruffle effect around the bottom, sleeves, and neck??  I love that little detail  Smiley

I used the rolled edge on my serger - it's magic! Much easier and faster than hemming and so lovely. I'm so lucky I have girls, I guess - boys clothes usually don't tolerate rolled edge Grin.

Ah!  A serger!!  I am just now beginning to realize the magic they can work.  You did a great job, I love it.  Little girl clothes are sooo cute!  You are lucky...especially with such adorable ones Smiley

Hehe, thank you. You could get similar effect with very short zig-zag stitch on regular machine and if you'd stretch your fabric while sewing. I've done that at the sea side where I brought my old sewing machine (but no serger) and it worked just fine. Of course serger is magic - but until you get one you can do similar rolled edge on your sewing machine Smiley. Hope this helps.
