Sewing for Summer

I was going to say "Sewing for Spring", but I live in Georgia and we just jump straight to Summer around here!  We've had temperatures in the 80's throughout the month of March and April and people are already opening their swimming pools! Either way, spring or summer, I've been sewing up some warm weather outfits for my darling niece.

Actually this skirt is for the little girl for whom I made the ruffle britches  (oooh "whom"!  I haven't used that word in a while! Fancy!).  This was the red monkey fabric that I didn't use on the sock monkey britches.  I didn't want to waste it and I had some solid black fabric laying around, so I whipped up this little ruffle skirt.

This reversible jumper is for my darling niece.  I love the color combination of turquoise and lime green! 

The cupcake fabric is some fabric my sister had purchased for the baby's first birthday outfit, but I went with a pink and white polka dot on the opposite side of the pink corduroy instead. I couldn't let this cute cupcake fabric go to waste so I used it to line the turquoise jumper.  I sewed the rick rack on using a decorative stitch so it would be just as cute on the inside of the dress as the outside!

I had some extra fabric and rick rack  left over so I whipped up some matching shorts.  I also found this cute turquoise and lime green polka dot ribbon, so I added the bows!  I just love how it turned out!

Now on to my most favorite outfit to date!  I love this tie on the shoulder reversible top and matching bloomers!

Isn't this the most gorgeous fabric ever!  I got this at Hobby Lobby and I could kick myself for not buying more of it and now its gone. 

Oui, oui, these are french seams on the bloomers!  So snazzy!

My Sunday school class threw a baby shower for a lady in our class so I made this pink gingham check peasant dress for her baby girl.  I forgot to take a picture before I wrapped it, so this is my friend Sharon holding it up at the shower. 

I am in love with this eyelet and rick rack trim.

Here is another ruffle skirt made with scraps from the ruffle britches

I hate to let fabric go to waste.  Maybe I should learn to quilt!
