My little girl loves it, and I only semi-cursed a few times in the sewing process.
How-To Gal Tips:
- Try the shirt on your little model and measure just below her rib cage. Add seam allowance to that measurement. Same with the skirt. I tried to eyeball it first like Ashley did and the dress was WAY too long and I had to hem it up. I used an old dress of mine and cut it off at the arm pits. Then, I should have slid it on my model and measured from the bottom of the skirt where I wanted it to hit her, all the way up to just below her rib cage (that way I could have used the skirt's professional hem). Add seam allowance to that measurement.
- When matching up the t-shirt to the skirt, turn the shirt inside out and slide the skirt inside the shirt. I don't know why I couldn't envision how to match up the right sides together...but I couldn't until I realized to slide the skirt inside the shirt. Silly me!
