Very cute!  I like the colors you chose.

FYI - For posting pictures on this forum, you need to grab the link that has the brackets []

That is very cute...you did a great job!  The pleats and the waist are so cute and look well done.  I think the bow would look best on the front, though.

Great job and very cute! 

The back carry was my favorite...my little one would always fall asleep while I was doing housework, laundry, cooking, etc.

There is a special swimwear elastic that you can use - it has a more open weave.

I would have to agree on the one-piece outfits.  Once they get into pottytraining, you need something that is easy for them to take off - quickly!  They are cute for babies and work for them, though. 

I tend to veer towards outfits that are practical to play in but still cute.  I like swing tops with pants/shorts for my daughter.

Very cute - the fabrics look very nice together!  It's a sweet little skirt.

Great job - it's very cute!

I've made over 50 Mei Tai's (I used to sell them) and they are so nice to carry babies and toddlers.  My suggestions for making them for those that are thinking about it:

1 - Use upholstery thread - it is very hard to break that thread and you want the carrier to be extra sturdy with babies.
2 - Choose your fabric carefully.  You don't want it to be too stiff, because it makes it hard to tie.  You don't want it to be too thin, because it may rip with weight on it.  You don't want it to have too much stretch.  I usually went for a thick cotton with just a touch of stretch in it for the straps.  The decorative panel on the outside - you can do pretty much any fabric with it - I used embroidered silk a lot (love the pretties!).   

I'll have to figure out how to post a tutorial on here that I have written...I just found this site.  Grin

I agree on the Ottobre for boys.  They have really cute styles.  The tracing was intimidating at first, but it really wasn't that hard.

I agree with a prior poster, you don't need a pattern.  Just take one of their underwear to draft the bottom and make a simple halter top for the top piece.  I made my daughter's swim suit last year with some remnants from the fabric store.  I like two pieces because they are easier to get off a potty training 2 year old.  Wink  I'll be making more this year - I got a cute patterned swimsuit fabric again this year.

Here's a link to the suit I made (first post so the forum won't let me show the picture):
