Pink polka dots for the princess

This is a short set I made using pink & white polka dot fabric I had in my stash. I used an Ottobre pattern for the top 03/07, it is the T-shirt with flounce sleeves. I added a layer of pink chiffon to the sleeve, along with the polka dot and white. I was unsure how the rolled hem would work on the chiffon, but it turned out great.

For the shorts I used a tutorial posted by Beachgirl http://siestasandsewing.blogspot.com/2010/01/gymboree-shorts-tutorial.html
I added a chiffon ruffle to the binding on the pocket. Thanks for the tutorial Beachgirl,
these sew up very fast using the stretch waistband. I will be using this method again for some quick and easy shorts.

We've really been enjoying the beautiful weather here in S Georgia. The outside garden keeps calling my name. So I'm between the sewing room and working in flower beds.

Happy sewing,
See ya
