The Finished Outfit

Here it is, cute as can be! The top is a shortened version of #122 using white pique' and blue gingham. The center smocking added some color without being to much. The shorts are from pattern #121.

I added the a bias band of blue gingham to the edge of the sleeves, to add some more color.

I made piping, using baby cording, to give the collar a finished look.

This picture shows the wrong side of the neck edge. The seam allowance was trimmed down to less than 1/4", batiste was used for the neck binding, and was understitched, to help control the bulk of the pleats.

Pink gingham, puffed sleeves, and a smocked flower, would be really sweet for a little girl!

Michie, that is too cute for a little boy. No dad could object with those 'boy' shorts and sleeves!

Thanks. It is a size 12 month, so MY husband would have been ok with it! :)
