I have three boys and then one girl. I waited a long time to have a little girl and now that I have one, I absolutely love to make little outfits for her to wear, especially ones she can wear to church. I had so much fun making her a Christmas skirt, that I decided to make her a winter outfit.
First off I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you that commented yesterday. It really appreciate your kindness. I read every single one of them and they really helped a lot. I was surprised by how many of you have gone through similar situations. Thank you all so much!
This is how I made her outfit:
I went looking through her closet and she didn’t have anything that was red, so I decided to take a shirt that was too little and make it into a little cardigan. For a full tutorial on how I did this, check out this post.
First I cut off the bottom of it and then cut it down the middle. Then I off the sleeves to make them shorter too.
I hemmed the sleeves, bottom and middle. Then using the left over fabric from the bottom, I made ruffles for middle.
My daughter want a little button, so I added some elastic and a button to the inside so she could close it.
Doesn’t she look so cute in it?
For the skirt, I just did a regular circle skirt, but then added some tulle to the bottom of it when I was hemming the bottom. For her skirt, I cut a 25×25 inch square and then the radius was the inner circle was 3”.
Using my Expressions 2, I cut out some snowflakes out of glitter heat transfer (LOVE that stuff!). I used pressure 4 and depth 4.
I weeded the excess heat transfer.
I then ironed on the snowflakes. I just love how it looks at the bottom. Wouldn’t this be so cute with stars for the 4th of July? I think so!
I added some elastic to the top of it. And that’s it, super easy!
I love the sparkle and design of those snowflakes.
She loved wearing it too!
Little girls are so much fun!
