Daisy Crazy

Chelsea sent me a box with 2 daisy prints and some checked gingham for me to make Heidi Sage something for spring.  I decided she would need an outfit to take on our spring break trip so I changed up the fabric combinations for the spring and will soon be adding a different top for the summer.

I found the knit jacket at Wal-mart.  I decided to use one of Chelsea's ideas from one of her previous posts.  I added a knit flower to the jacket and used embroidery thread to stitch around the flower and added a button for the center of the flower.  I got my mom (Jean Zimmer/Grammy) to help out.  She did the stitching around the flower while I worked on some other project.

For the pants I took a plain elastic pant and cut the pattern shorter and added a ruffle.  The ruffle is 45" long for each leg.  I cut some bias strips to sew above the ruffle and added some rick rack.

For the bow I used gray and white dot ribbon with a smaller yellow bow on top with a small daisy made out of knit topped with a yellow button.




I decided to also make Courtney a coorinating shirt to wear when Heidi Sage is wearing her Daisy Outfit.  So I got my mom busy stitching around the two flowers we put on Courtney's Shirt.  I found this shirt at Academy.  They come in lots of colors for around 6 bucks.  Nice and heavy also.

Courtney is a HUGE fan of big ruffles on the bottoms of pants for little girls.  I wasn't so sure, but don't you know we got stopped over and over while in Destin so that people could tell us how cute her outfit was.  I guess Courtney does know a thing or two...now and then.  :-)

Ruffled Up,

Love the ruffle! I think they are so cute on the little ones! You did a great job. You can't go wrong with flowers, ruffles and bows. Thanks for sharing!

Super cute! I made some pants like this for my little girl with a daisy fabric. They were so adorable! Unfortunately, she never got to wear them because they were to put in the local fabric shop first and by the time I got them back they were way too small :( Oh well, I guess I'll have to make some more. I love the daisy you added to the shirt too really great job! I would love for you to link this to my Sew Crafty Saturday Party this weekend! ~April @ Wildflowers & Whimsy
