So...I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and I do little things with it all the time. I really do use my sewing machine almost everyday for some small thing or another. But I really want to learn how to sew! One day while hunting for fabric for Mom for the pageant, I ran into a sale on patterns--50 cents each! Since they're normally about 10 bucks, I got as many as they would let each person have.
Anyway, I found a pattern that I thought was so cute, and I could imagine any of my nieces wearing it, and I really wanted to make it. Tess's birthday has given me the perfect excuse, so I made it! I'm not completely happy with it...I made a couple big mistakes, but it's fine, and if she wears it even a couple of times I'll be happy. So, let me know what you think (remember I've never really sewn anything in my life, so make sure you're kind...)!
Just to clarify--I only made the top. Although I did alter the bottoms from full leggings to capri leggings. And the pom pons at the top are matching elastics for her hair! It looks a little full lying on the ground, but it hopefully won't be so big to the sides once it's on.
Here's what it should look like...
