Are not my nieces adorable? Why, thank you! I think so too.
One thing on my list for this summer was to make matching outfits for these sweet girls. I decided on little tee shirts and skirts.
You can't go wrong with pink, flowers and ruffles for little girls!
I used NewLook 6016 for the shirts. If I use this shirt pattern again I will probably make the neckband a little shorter and narrower, because the neckbands didn't turn out as nice and flat as I would have liked.
For the skirts, I followed this tutorial. I created an ombre effect by using graduating shades of pink for the ruffles.
It was really fun sewing for the smalls. I guess that's because I have always like tiny things. I couldn't help holding up a shirt now and then and exclaiming, It's so little and cute!". ;)
