Fantastic, detailed review-kudos to you. Your niece is a very lucky (and stylish) little lady.

Leslie, these are so cute. Your niece is going to be the cutest kid there. :) How do you find the time to whip up these fabulous gifts?

Your skill and motivation paid off in spades. There's no way I'd attempt a project like your beautifully detailed Rose Bowl outfit. (I also don't like sewing under a deadline, but well, at Christmas, it happens.) Great job.

Leslie, those jeans are fantastic. Your niece will be the Belle of the ball watching the game with you. I can't say enough good things about how wonderful those jeans are and how professional they came out. You go girl! Since we are Cowboys fans in this house, we'll root for your team on New Year's Day. ;o) Darn it...we won't be dressed as cute as your niece however.

They are incredible, Leslie! Wow all of that topstitching and work that you have put into these mini jeans, now that is really impressive. What a lucky little niece to have such a talented and wonderful aunt like you.

Absolutely true about the time-consuming nature of sewing jeans and jean jackets. I did the K-S jacket for my DGD and had 3 machines set up: Pfaff for twin-needle; Featherweight for the straight stitching; serger for the finish work. Took forever but results are worth it. You are truly beyond any level of beginner.

Truly a spectacular project motivated by love! I hear you on the topstitching - I've been there all right ! :O}

What! You still haven't promoted yourself!? Skip intermediate please and jump straight to advanced. After you've done that, do please photograph her in her Rose Bowl outfit and post it for us.

Now there's a perfect Rose Bowl outfit! You deserve a sewing vacation after everthing you've created this month. So adorable! Go UT!!!

Leslie, your workmanship is top drawer. I think your are more than an advanced beginner. I have been seeing lots of gifts sewn by you lately that are very RTW. I also recently finished a jean jacket for a 6 YO, so I am with you........the unending topstitching is a drag. I finally pulled out an old Singer stored in a closet and did my regular stitching on that and just left my other machine set up for top stitching.

I am amazed at the amount of patience these little cuties must have taken. Kudos to both the jacket and jeans..I sure do hope they last a long time on their intended recepient. This has really given me hope that one day I will be able to accomplish something like these.

Those are just adorable and look better than RTW. Shes going to look so cute in her jacket and pants. take a pic.

Very RTW, Leslie. Isn't the jeans styling such a PITA? But you've preserved and are finished for the time being. They look fabulous, too! with that darling rosebud and all those miles of topstitiching. Whew, and now have a Merry Christmas!
