From Winter to Spring...

 I made this Smores print outfit for Shelby in January. She was wearing it the day she got sick with the flu, and we never got a picture of her in it. Then mommy and daddy got sick, and I'm not sure she's even gotten to wear it again.
 I made the pink pants using some twill I purchased from Chez Ami. I had also purchased some pink, limegreen, and white stripe from there also. This next outfit was made so that she could wear the top with the pink pants until it gets warm enough to wear the shorts. I love sewing spring/summer outfits because it seems like they get so much more wear out of them.
 I had bought the lime green/pink polka dot and striped buttons when I got this fabric. I just thought they'd add a whimsical touch.
 The pattern is a vintage Butterick pattern that was bought at an antique shop. You see the original price? I don't know what year it was printed as it wasn't on the envelope. I sure do like the pattern and might just use it again.
  Now I have to decide what to make next. I participated in a fabric swap on one of my forums, and this is the fabric I received.

 Any suggestions?

Come back and visit again!

You are so talented and Shelby is a lucky little girl. The pattern is sweet as can be and I love the fabrics. Hope everyone is feeling better now. Enjoy the weekend.

Shirley,
You have such talent and an eye for colors...I love the pink and green stripes. It's interesting, I was thinking of outfits I made when I was first learning to sew for my nephews...I know I have a picture somewhere but need to dig to find it. Now that my son is 11 he just wants lounge pants and such...not a lot of creativity there!

I love the fabric in those sweet little outfits. As the mother of two boys, I always envied the charming clothes for little girls. Maybe a granddaughter someday?

Best,
