I took a class yesterday to make a peasant top and double ruffle pants at my local Fabric Shop. It was a really fun class and lasted all day! The patterns are from the book “Little Girls, Big Style” by Mary Abreu. This is a great book and has 4 basic patterns to make over 23 different projects. I made mine in a size 2. I finally learned how to do shirring and it really is easy to do. You just have to make sure the tension is right and you have your elastic thread in your bobbin correctly. I will be making more of these outfits!!! I love how they turned out. Oh and I gave this outfit to my granddaughter today for her 2nd Birthday. Happy Sewing everyone!
