sweet little Sarah, who may or may not decide that she wants to wear wear it! It is the same romper that I made for her big sister and cousin last summer, and I thought this would look cute with a white t-shirt or turtle neck.
The pattern is from Bonnie Blue and this time when I made it I cut some fullness from the body. I used 2 different cottons for the ruffles; one is a red, pink and green print on white, the other is a lime green and white chevron. I used a little different method for the ruffles on the bottom, drawing a line where the ruffle begins, attaching it carefully along the line, and then enclosing the raw edges from behind and covering them with a corduroy fold on the wrong side. I used the # 86 ruffler for the ruffles along the bottom of the pants, but gathered the bodice ruffle the old fashioned way with gathering threads.
With the ruffler foot for this ruffle, I set the foot to gather each stitch, and then set the screw for a fairly shallow tuck.
I am now thinking about 3 more Christmas outfits...it is nice to have one behind me!
