Top and pants based on Simplicity 2427 pattern dress and shorts. Double rolled hem at bottom of ice cream and ruffled yellow layer tier. Yellow tier ruffle made using ruffler foot. Made matching bias tape – sewn around arm holes. 1st fitting, she couldn’t get her head through the opening = added a back zipper. 2nd fitting = way too short so I made it a top and added pants. Lengthened the Simplicity shorts pattern to make pants adding ruffle to bottom.
Cotton, thread, elastic waist band, interfacing around neckline and front V-cut.
