The Big Sister outfit

Here is the finished big sister outfit - the back of the top is shirred but I left the front un-shirred so that all Jalisa’s shirred tops would not be exactly the same.

You can’t tell from the photo how full the skirt is. Not quite as full as a circle skirt but there is plenty to twirl with. The pattern is Ottobre #18 3/2007 (minus the lace at hem). Very easy to make, though I disliked the waistband method - made something that is a cinch just, well, annoying.

And a big thank you to Corrie for the lovely pressie - the name that I suggested was chosen for Retro Mummy's flickr group.

    Ohhh I've got the pattern in the top left hand corner! It's a BEAUTIFUL dress and pants! And not as complicated as it looks either!! I will make it one day!!!

    What a lovely collection! And i love the "big sis" outfit.

  2. What a sweet outfit for a big sis-to-be!
    I love the idea of shirring the back, much easier than a zip or buttons but it will fit easily over a little one's head. Good thinking!


Thanks - I love receiving comments.
