A New Outfit for Paige

Today was a babysitting day for me but she was an angel and let me sew in spurts. I made the pants today that go with the top/dress. The top is so long that it could be worn as a short dress or as a long top with pants as shown. This is a Children's Corner pattern called Abbie. Although I didn't do any embroidery or applique, it took some time because of piping, collars, lining and a very different styling in the top.

I love the colors and the paisley print. And I think it has an oriental flavor to the styling. The top was a little bit of a challenge for me but I'm glad I did it and learned something new. I love to sew for my little angel!

This is so cute and I love that it can be worn as a dress or a shirt. The colors are fantastic together! You did a great job with all that piping-such a cute detail.:)

I love the paisley print, too, the buttons and that little slit on the side. It's too cute!
