Spring Ruffle top for my daughter!


Tonight, I decided to make a Spring Ruffle Top for my daughter using the tutorial on Sew,Mama,Sew blog. I used some fabric that I got for next to nothing at a thrift shop. I didn't want to use really expensive fabric incase I messed it up. But I really like the fabric I used and the top turned out so cute. The nice things about it is that I used the length suggested for an adult. Since all the kids are wearing long tunic tops this summer with leggings it works perfectly. She is all excited about it because blue is her favorite colour. Now she wants me to make her another one. She had fun posing for the pictures. She's so cute!!

It looks great on her! I love how she strikes a pose :) Did you find it hard to get on and off of her? I made one for Lily and it is a bear to get on and off. I was thinking of adding buttons to the back next time.
