Very pretty! I love the fabric, the ribbon straps and your gorgeous girls amazing hair!!! Lucky girl!

I've been learning the value of 'by the book' myself. I tended to skip around through patterns saying "that's stupid, I don't need to do this part" and 9 times out of 10 I *did* need to do that part and spent more time ripping stuff up than if i had just read the directions and done what i was supposed to in the first place.

Not that I've completely stopped, that one out of ten times still fuels my feeling that i don't need their stinking instructions on occasion  Cheesy Perhaps when i'm more experienced, that will be the case. But for right now I do better when I stick to the pattern/tutorial instructions!!

Good work!

I can't wait until my kiddo is old enough to request fabric from nana and papa - they're total saps when it comes to her.

I am seriously in awe of your patience. I'd love to be able to do a dress like that for the bunny, but I just know I'd get crazed with the patchworking.

Love it!

Fantastic! She looks darling in it!

I've got a stack of shirts just waiting for these dresses, now I just have to get off of my butt and do them!

What a great idea! I'm going to have to whip up some for the bunny. I think she'd probably tolerate them.

And I totally understand the waiting. I got the nesting bug BAD the last few days before she showed up. I was scrubbing out the freezer at 3:30 in the morning the night before I went into labor. You know, because they won't let you take a baby home if your freezer isn't perfectly clean and organized  Roll Eyes At least you can sit while you sew!

That is darling, and an awesome idea for a recon.

You know, because I needed more things to put on my thrifting expedition lists  Roll Eyes

And the pants are a pj pant pattern that I just sewed cylinders of scrap fabric from the top onto the hems with elastic thread (MY NEW LOVE!!!! More of that coming soon. Seriously, I think I'm going to build a shrine to the stuff.)

Hooray for fast and easy! And elastic thread!

...Could you please back up and explain that "cylinders of scrap fabric sewn on with elastic thread" part again? I'm thinking that's where I got lost...Are we talking about elastic thread through the needle or in the bobbin (or both)?? By "cylinder" did you mean sewing a tube with the cut edges to the inside?

Sorry to be such a nuisance...

No problem at all.
-Got a rectangle of of the print fabric
-sewed the short ends together to make a circle
-folded the circle, wrong sides together and ironed to it'd stay put
-pinned circle to pant hem, right sides together, raw edges even
-sewed together with elastic thread in bobbin only
-flipped ruffle down, ironed

sorry, i'm totally a visual person so i'm not very good at giving or reading instructions. normally i just fuss with something until i figure it out on my own. i hope that clears things up a little, though.

Thanks guys! It's an Amy Butler print. I love her stuff.

No buttons on the back. They're kind of hard to see because the pattern is so busy - but there are buttons on the straps right at her shoulders.
