Hi everyone.
I'm a rather inexperienced sewer.  Mostly I've appliqued a ton of tshirts for my son since commercial boy clothes suck.  I did sew a pair of pants and a fleece vest for him so apparently I can sew simple clothes.

My xmas pollyanna is a GIRL CHILD.  WHOO HOO.  Since my "art" is applique, I will obviously applique something for her.  But I think I'd like to SEW something.  But her momma dresses her a little more tomboy than girlie - I dont' think the child wears many dresses.  So I'm thinking an easy, not too girlie girl outfit that has applique space.

Ideas?  Patters that would be a good choice? 
A good example of what she wears:

Thanks in advance, craftsters.

New Look has several simple A-line dress patterns (can be shortened to a top)that make great canvases for applique work but since you say she wears tomboyish styles try a pair of jeans.  You can get more than you think on a pants leg.  Just rip the inside seams first go to town with your design then sew them back up! 

In completed projects I listed some of the things I made.  The A line dress I'm speaking of is listed there. I made fur cuffs to match.  You may have seen it already.
