That is a lovely outfit!!! having 2 girls myself I'm a bit partial... very professional job, I really like the inside binding and all the thought you put into the baby's comfort.

Adorable. All of your modifications are so thoughtful--this outfit was obviously sewn with love. I also appreciate the detailed descriptions and extra photos.

Beautiful! Your lucky little niece will be proud to wear it, I'm sure. I just became an aunt too with a niece, now 3 months old. With a boy myself, this is my first opportunity to sew for baby girls and I'm loving it! I get to dive into fabrics I never could use before but loved on the bolts.

My feline sewing assistant just woke up from my little shriek of adoration. The print is beyond cute, especially in those colors. Your conversation description makes me laugh too-I know how you feel!

I just made this a short time ago and I really thought it was cute. I ran into the same problem that you did - where the pattern envelope says 2 buttons or snaps but you really need three. I love this fabric.

This is adorable-it's sure to be a hit!! I love the ribbon, it makes a great finishing touch. I may have to steal that idea from you :o)

You've certainly created a multitude of adorable items from just one pattern. The contrast band and appliques on the newest outfit are such cute additions.

Your starting to make me miss the baby stage. I didn't think I'd ever feel that way after number 3.

You have an eye for design and the patience to make it work! All are too cute for words. Very inspiring for those of us sewing for children.

I *love* this outfit!! Applique is addicting, isn't it? I bet your niece will look sweet as pie in this. Lucky girl!

Leslie, you have the patience of a saint to make all these dresses, and they are beautiful. I only made the one and I still shudder at the thought of making it again!

Leslie, these are so adorable! I manged to miss the first couple of versions. Honestly, these look like they came straight out of a high end baby boutique. Lucky baby to have such a great aunt.

thanks for continuing to post as you make this again and again--it is so inspiring to see all the creativity this pattern allows you and all the elaborations... so beautiful!

OMGoodness!!! Another creation, totally unique, and absolutely precious!! I'm sure the new mom will *love* it-I am going to steal your piping idea-what size cord did you use to make it?
7/7/05 3:48 PM
Leslie in Austin said...
The package of piping cord I bought wasn't labelled with a size, but I think it's usually called mini or petite cording. Someone at the conference told me that you can buy a whole skein of it for <$3 at Hobby Lobby. I'll be over that direction tomorrow--I'll see if I can find out exactly what their version is called. Keep in mind, it's a little squirrel-y and harder to make than regular sized piping. Might be easier to buy it pre-made from somewhere like Children's Corner or Susie's Ready to Smock.

Karla Kizer said...
Darn, Leslie. If these get any cuter, you can make one for me. :eek: Never mind. I might have to get this pattern to keep as a permanent part of The Collection. All those weddings I went to a year ago will result in baby showers, right? Your versions of these outfits are just adorable.

Leslie these are SOOOO cute! I love the ladybugs, and the piping looks great! I might have to get this pattern as a friend just had twin girls....

I have so enjoyed looking at all of your cutie pie creations! I think my favorite is the appliqued one. I bet your husbands co-worker flipped that you made an outfit in the babys "theme" motif. Your outfits give me baby lust!!

JDpenelope said...
Your piping ideas are very inspiring. (Haven't done piping in years and that was on home dec stuff.) You have proven again that a simple pattern with beautiful fabric and appropriate embellishment can make a dynamite outfit. Keep 'em comin'.

Too cute! Went straight from your review to Hancock's for the pattern. Guess the grandbaby gets a new dress tomorrow.

Thank you so much, Leslie for the back photo. I have been looking everywhere for a pattern to knock off a Kelly's Kids ruffle tie top and bloomers. The back of this pattern is as close as I am going to get. I will post the finished product. Love your versions of this one.

How precious! I just bought this pattern today. Thanks for all of your tips and photos. I can't wait to make summer outfits for my little princess!

I think you have given me an "excuse" to buy another foot for my machine! Your gathers are PERFECT! These little sundresses are too cute!
