Ruffles and More Ruffles (and Flowers too!)

One of my friends had her little girl dressed in a cross-over jacket similar to this one.  When I saw it, I knew I had to make one for my baby princess.  The rest of the outfit just sort of evolved.

I was looking on the J. Crew website for some ideas for the leggings and came across these:

I loved the flowers, but beads didn't seem like such a good idea for a baby who is starting to put everything she can get her hands on in her mouth, so I just did the flowers.

The skirt I came up with on my own, and when I was drooling over the kids' clothes at J. Crew, I saw a similar one.

Ha! I should be a J. Crew designer.  Okay, not really.

Here is a view of the whole ensemble:

How sweet are those ruffles on the leggings. I love it. I wonder if I could get my 5 year old to wear something like that...hmmmm.

Your baby is very cute and so is her outfit. Love her sweet leggings. Maybe one day when she is older, you and she will embellish her clothes together like my mom and I did. Back when I was in high school, I had designer tastes but not the budget, so we were always going to the expensive store for ideas then finding a way to embellish stuff I bought cheap. Your daughter will have some great memories of what you did for her if you are still doing this for her then.

could you do a tutorial for the leggins and the skirt, I would love to make them for my baby girl, but I am a beggining sewer and need step by steps :) I just love how it looks on your little one!

I concur on the need for a tutorial-- I don't sew much, but those leggings really make me want to try!
