Well, little number 3 got 'all washed up' this weekend, but leading up to it, I was itching to try a few tutorials that I've found online... the pictures are NOT great, and I didn't even get a picture of the baby in her matching outfit (after mass), but the main goal of this post is to link to some great tutorials that I recommend....
the girls skirt came from here
the rosette (which actually comes out MUCH smaller than the tutorial pictures would make you think, fyi) came from hereand little one's matching onesie/dress (not shown... I'll try to get a picture of her in it in the
next few days and update) was an interpretation (I didn't use elastic for the skirt, I just sewed a ruffle - one long running stitch set at highest tension and longest stitch, then pull the threads... next time the elastic may work better) from here
