My daughter's chest was 19.5 inches.  I added an inch for seam allowance and another 2 inches or so for the button hole overlap, so it was about 23" long.  The width is just a judgement call on what I thought looked good.  The skirt is 1.5x the length of the bodice piece, and it's about a foot long before hem, etc.  The straps were based on what width I thought would look good.  So if the strap is 2 inches wide, I make a 4.5 inch rectangle.  Sew up one side, turn inside out and then press it so the seam is centered on the back side of the strap.

clear at mud?

Thanks, yall! 

I made up the pattern myself, based on my daughter's chest measurement.  It's basically just 3 rectangles. 

I'm going to *try* to work up a tute for another board--when I do, I'll post it.

I adore the empire waist for toddler girls--especially Hanna Andersson and the like.  But, I'm cheap.  And AA lap tees are cheap and have matching pants....so the little hamster in my head started running.  All of these dresses are intended to be worn over pants and a long sleeve tee for fall weather.  They are all open in the back (except the 1st one).
This was my first attempt.  The skirty thing is actually sewn onto the shirt. I left the shirt long so that a draft wouldn't give her a chill this fall.

But then I thought, CRAP!  now I can't use that black shirt for anything else.

So these were born:

unless you have your heart set on making a quilt, don't bother making a blanket.  I have two kids and about a billion baby blankets--most handmade!  They are a favorite gift to give, so I would concentrate on something else.

I chose to concentrate on making the coming home outfit.
