Sewing: Toddler Shorts & Tops

Here's another one I made for the wee one. Too bad there aren't that many cute patterns for little boys - I was looking to make a few for my wee little nephew. No matter. I am glad I can keep making these little girls' clothes for Ana, for now.

The shorts is a tad big but I prefer making it a little bigger than her current size so she can grow into it :-)

For the tops, I skimped a little - I just had a 100% cotton fat quarter left from another quilting project and wanted to use it up. And, I had washed and ironed the fat quarter to pre-shrink, so, it just wasn't sufficient for the kind of smocking I wanted, so, I just lazily threw it together.

Same with the shorts, the fabric was leftover from a quilting fat quarter and was just enough to make the shorts. She seems to like them - airy, comfortable and lets her move around without much of a hindrance...

She couldn't wait to put them on, and went about playing in the yard all evening, and when it was time to get into her jammies, she threw a fit as she didn't want to take her new clothes off!

That should, theoretically, make me feel good, but, I know that with just the same verve she will refuse to put them on another day... so, easy-come, easy-go :-)

Both the outfits look great, Sheela.. I made a fushia pink dress too, one that can double up as a top.. Will post about it sometime.
