Green Floral Print Outfit...

 How do you do, lovely readers...
A happy new week to you!

~ Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time...  Author Unknown ~

Let me show you the sweet green floral outfit I sewed for Rebekah last week...


This pretty summery shirt is so simple to make...I used narrow cream coloured bias binding for the sleeves, which I have seen used on many garments for little girls.


This shirt needed a little something to finish it off...nothing too big or bulky, and these lovely fabric flowers were just the thing!  

The simple instructions for making your own can be found on The Enchanting Rose here...

 

I made another fabric flower and securely sewed it to a hair-slide...
I covered the buttons for the centre of the flowers with green fabric too so as to give the overall appearance of the outfit a more professional finish...


...A frill on the bottom of the shirt and three-quarter pants gives feminine charm to a practical, comfortable outfit which would otherwise be very plain...


...I also added a sweet pocket on the back of the three-quarter pants for more detail.


Rebekah was simply delighted with her new outfit and is already awaiting an opportunity to wear it out!  {{smiles}}

Next up is a similar outfit for Gabrielle as well as a shirt dress which I plan to make for her birthday in April.  Beth has requested pyjama pants and a viscose jumpsuit whilst Mom is in need of a new peasant blouse and Caleb a tracksuit....  And Sofia is pleading with me to make her a new tiered skirt and short-sleeved peasant blouse!  Thankfully, I dearly love to sew and am only too happy to have so much opportunity to practice!  {{smiles}} 

Blessings to you, dear friends...

Kelly-Anne,

The outfit you have sewn for Rebekah is beautiful! I love the little flowers you added for detail! Especially the flower for her hair!! I want to make something like that for Jemimah now. : ) I also love the ruffles you added to the blouse and pants, so pretty! You have quite the sewing list! Your family is blessed to have such a talented seamstress!

Aww, Rebekah and her outfit are absolutely beautiful and gorgeous! Her outfit reminded me so much of the children's play clothes in "The Sound of Music"! Very pretty! {{smiles}}
