Absolutely incredible! I would say that you've inspired me but I KNOW that I can't even dream of making something this fantastic!

Aww, that's nice. I'm interested in McCalls NY Junior 3733 and Simplicity 8399.

Tip for adding seam allowances--trace your pattern onto your fabric and cut approximately 1/2 inch around your lines, then just be sure to stitch on the lines you've traced. It's really how comfortable you are with your seam allowances being narrower or wider. If you make 'em too wide, just trim 'em up after sewing.

Hope that helps.   Undecided

If you had to add a colored cuff to the bottom maybe you could sew on pockets in the back out of the same fabric. Or add on one of those little tiny pockets that shows just inside his front pockets (think: 5 pocket jeans). If you were going to make sets using a coordinating shirt you could just put an applique on the shirt or a pocket or embellishment to make it look like the cuffs were just added to go with the outfit.

My daughters are skinny minny too--my 5 year old is one of the tallest in her class and still fits in about a 24 month waist--thank God for skirts paired with footless tights!

I found this great link on Farbenmix--it's to help out in sewing their patterns. They only have a fraction of their patterns translated into English, but what's there is great. They are guides for sewing up their patterns and some of them have a photo illustrated step-by-step guide. This isn't actually the patterns, but on many of them you can look at the basic pattern pieces that they show and I'm sure anyone with any amount of experience can "fudge" their way through several of these SUPER CUTE pieces.
Anyhow, hope this helps!!

I, for one, love it!

I think they're all great but the green creates the most "sleepy" or tranquil vibe I think--if you're into the whole color therapy thing. I'm a sucker for bright colors though so I LOVE the pink and the blue... gosh--I just love the way you've paired your fabrics. Smiley

Where did you get the panels? I found some pillowcases at Target this summer with a similar butterfly/swirly pattern that I've made into stroller blankets for my baby and my older daughters are jealous... Smiley

Makes perfect sense... I guess I'll take a look at my seams when I'm done and if it looks like it needs a border, I'll use some sort of binding. It's just a pattern of blocks and doesn't have any sort of border yet, that's why I was thinking it might need a binding of some sort... just to break up the edges from looking so ... blunt?
