Thanks gals! Smiley JennieK, I hope you love the pattern as much as I do!  I really love it.  I use it to make tops, too.  And instead of encasing the elastic I just sew 1/4" elastic right to the neck and sleeves.  SO much easier. 

Good luck!

Awhile back, my friend's little girl got a hot pink pettiskirt from her grandma.  And since I thought it was super fab, I had to make one.  I searched down a a free tute...

Thanks  Grin

Pixieval, I saw a tutorial once for making baby pants out of t-shirts.  So, I tried that and then eventually made some shorts and then tried making leggings.  To make the pattern I just used a pair of leggings that fit her, folded them in half, laid them out on paper and traced the right side, flipped them to the left and then traced that side,  making one pattern piece ...does that make sense?  Oh, and of, course, I added seam allowances to the pattern.  Then you lay the hem of the pattern against the hem of the shirt...baddabang baddaboom...easy leggings.  I love going to the thrift store here in town when they have women's shirts for 50 cents and finding stripey shirts for this purpose. 

If you have anymore questions, shoot!

Here's a fun upcycled outfit I made for my wee chickadee (and even though she has a fairly strict ONLY PINK CLOTHES policy, she actually likes this outfit...Huzzah!)

It's just a store bought shirt with the twisty rosettes and stems added.  And then the leggings are made from a t-shirt.  I love making leggings out of shirts since you can cut the pants out on the hem of the shirt and then have a professional looking hem.  So easy!

And then here's a close-up of the rosettes...

Thanks for looking!

Wow Smiley  Thanks gals. You're all so kind. 

I love projects involving fusible webbing.  It makes everything so stinkin' easy.

Wow.  It's been awhile since I've posted anything here.  But I thought I'd share these fun shirts I appliqued for my wee girls...
