Having realized just how easy it is to make some basic shirts and dresses for my daughter, I used this tutorial to make a cute little tank. (Sorry, funky photo.)



Instead of giving the ruffle a rounded shape as in the tutorial, I just left the edge straight.





I also took the same tutorial, kept the rounded sleeve shape, and added to the length to make a dress.





And I made a little tank in a sort of pillowcase dress style. Inspired by this tutorial for a dress, I made a strap to fit through the casing rather than using a ribbon.

Then I fixed up an existing pair of still-fitting-but-no-longer needed fall/winter pants with a shorter (capri) length and coordinating cuffs. When the cuffs are rolled up you see the coordinating fabric, but they can also be rolled down for a neutral look that matches anything. (Additional photos on my flickr page.)





I think I'm done making kid clothes for a while, am feeling ready to move on to other things, but my daughter's gotten some nice additions to her summer wardrobe and they were so, so easy to make. Thanks for looking!
