Toddler Button Shoulder Tunic and Shorts

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.

Material Notes

100% cotton, rickrack trim

    What a comfy outfit- I love it. I think we should all wear more orange! I don’t know if it is all that less expensive to sew clothes anymore either, but at least we can get what we want and we dont have to fix the clothes we buy before we wear them! (my biggest pet peeve!)
