You are on your way to becoming an accomplished sewer what a beautiful outfit. The best way to learn is just what you did tackle a project and learn as you go. Soon you will pick up methods from various projects and you will know which way you like to sew things and then the instructions become suggestions and the whole process becomes easier. I ditto the suggest about the Reader's Digest book I use it often as a reference.

It is adorable! If you haven't already, invest in a good sewing book for reference. I like the Reader's Digest the best for me. There are lots of books reviewed here on PR. And you know, we all get puckers once in a while- it's our little secret. Kwik Sew patterns are great when you're just starting out, too. Their directions are excellent!

Your finished project looks very successful. You are right about the challenges of sewing very tiny clothes! The instructions often do not mention grading and clipping seams which might help with the bulkiness at the armhole seam. I find quilting cotton is generally a good weight for baby clothes, and it comes in such great prints, like the ones you have chosen.
