It’s my first project back at the machine in a long time and something of an experiment. It used to be more economical to sew your own – is it still? And I’m happy to say that I can still sew more inexpensively than I can buy off the rack – even at Walmart.
A very simple A-line top with applique pockets and shoulder button closure. Elastic waistband shorts. DD is a very large toddler and the garden variety infant sizes are far in our past. The original was too plain so I added rickrack to try to spice it up. Trying to keep to a budget, I opted for inexpensive fabric and notions. DD is very comfortable in it and the tunic is long enough to be like a mini-dress if the pants get trashed.
