A little outfit I made


Here's a little outfit I made for my friend's grandchild. It is New Look 6719. I bought it from a clearance rack, so it might be discontinued. Anyway, I added a little embroidery around the flowers on the top and on the pants. The bag straps are attached with embroidery, too. The purse is from a pattern I got on Etsy at "So Spoiled." Here's the Etsy link: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_2&listing_id=13111551 This is the "Versatile Bag" pattern. It is sized for an adult, so I scanned the printed pattern and reduced it to 70%. BTW, it's a really easy bag to sew and I can't wait to do a grownup version for myself! It really is versatile...as you can see, I put a button on my version! Below is a closeup of the embroidery on the top:

What a darling outfit! I wish my seamstress skills were better (or even existent for that matter!).

Glad to know those "green bags" work. I've wondered for a while about that...thanks for the advice!

What an awesome outfit. Someday I will learn to sew! I would love to be able to make my kiddos clothes like that. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is SO cute! :) I love orange outfits for little girls. I'm always dressing our daughter in orange when I have the chance (and she loves the bright colors, too.)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you enjoy the peanut sauce!

Your little dog is adorable, by the way.
Blessings,
Michele :)
