Don't Make Me Walk the Runway!!!




(jacket revised in top photo.....thanks Nelda! I think the ruffle is perfect:D)

My little princess is NO MODEL! I should really post some of the odd pics I have of her....when asked to model the clothes I have made her:D The last outfit I photographed while she laid on the kitchen floor....LOL This little girl hates the runway and the look of my camera......could it be that I over do it? Surely not....ha..ha! I don't think she really knows what I want, but if only she would stand still....grandma would be happy:) It doesn't take alot to make grandma happy! Anyway....here is the little skirt I made the other night after she went to sleep. She had come over in another little skirt I had made and evidently she had worn it many times because I was starting to look faded and wilted. I made the little jacket after she left.....not I think the sleeves are too short and I will have to take out the sleeve hems and do something with that.....but anyway, here it is! The jacket is a large brown and green polka dot corduroy and the skirt is several cotton prints I found along with a piece of small polka dotted brown and green (matches exactly) cotton. I really like the patchwork idea and will do this again:D

Love that patchwork skirt. How about lengthening the sleeves of the jacket with a contrasting ruffle?

Wow, Linda, that ruffle and pin put this jacket over the top. It was really cute before, but now you've made it designer chi-chi.
