To say I have neglected my little Miss Baby’s wardrobe this year is an understatement… I have just been so tied up with quilting work that I haven’t really given any thought to updating Miss Baby’s wardrobe until recently. I decided that wouldn’t do – so I got to work on finishing some outfits for her. That’s why I have been a bit scarce on the internet – please don’t be offended.
You have already seen the smocked monogrammed bishop Miss Baby wore for Mother’s Day. Now here is the latest finish – a summer play outfit:
I call the outfit “You are my Sunshine” outfit, or jokingly nicknamed, the “New Mexico License Plate” outfit because of the bright and sunshiny colors!
The pattern is Bonnie Blue‘s Madison – View 4, followed exactly! Her instructions are quite easy to follow, and that’s a glowing review from a sewing klutz like me. I managed to bumble my way through sewing the lining fabric to the garment without much mishap.
I think the top turned out really cute. You can see that the back is ruffled too! I can pair it with a pair of shorts for the upcoming hotter days of summer,
or add a little blouse underneath the top with the entire ensemble for late summer/early fall.
I am not too crazy about the pants – the construction turned out fine. But the cut is a bit too baggy for my taste. Notice I said “my” taste — Miss Baby does not have a choice just yet as to what her clothing choice is for the next 35 years of her life, bwahaha!
But overall, I liked the pattern, and will use it again. I think a full-length jumper is in the very near future! I have a couple of ideas… stay tuned! :)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a sunshiny day!
