I was able to make Ellie a few new things
to add to her wardrobe this weekend!
I love a cute "mama made" outfit!! (I mean top!)
Taking photos of an almost 15 mo. old = BLURRY!!! :)
this girl is on the go!
I found a small scrap of this blue calico print fabric at goodwill
knowing I could at least make something Ellie sized out of it!
I didn't have a pattern so I just winged it (wung it???),
figuring out what it would become as I went.
(She's not upset in the above pic, just cheesin' it up for the camera!)
I decided on a simple top with some fun ties over the shoulders!
Pair it with a matching cloth diaper and you've got a summer outfit!
It doubles as a skirt actually
if you untie the straps and tuck them in!
Don't worry, we'll put a shirt with it when we're out in public :)
I also made a pinafore using a pattern from my friend's etsy shop!
Check her out to get your own pinafore pattern or other great stuff!!
She's got cute stuff for your littles to wear!
I love how the straps cross in the back
and that Ellie can wear it in
warm weather with even just a diaper or shorts
or even cooler weather
if I layer it over long sleeves and leggings!
Plus! It's REVERSIBLE!! :)
I think I'll be making several more!
It might become her summer "uniform"!!
Where did those chubby legs go? :(
And her arm roll creases are almost gone too!
Welcome to toddler hood, sweet girl!!
