I think this is my first official completed project post!  Im not much of a seamstress but for some reason I decided I had to make my daughter an outfit for the Fourth of July.  Probably because I spend so much time lurking around here! lol 

I didn't use a pattern (smart for my first ever outfit huh?) but of course have seen lots of the adorable patchwork and twirly skirts on here.  I used the same concept to make my square as you would when making an around the world quilt. 

The top is a reconstructed long sleeve onesie that I cut the sleeves off of, tea stained, and put the star on top. 

I'm pretty please with how it turned out but my next outfit will definitely use a pattern! 

Just a side note but the other pictures showing up in my photo gallery are not mine.  I'll have to figure that one out!

I would love to do a swap!

Oh that's very cute! Love that it's muted americana shades; red white and blue don't always have to be so bright! Good job. Smiley

Thanks so much.  It didn't take long at all really.  The shirt took longer than the skirt believe it or not. lol  I worked on it two different nights after the kiddo went to bed but probably about 4-5 hours total. 

I couldn't resist the antiqued colors.  I really wanted to stay more traditional with our holiday decorations and stuff this year.   

I would love to do a swap!
