Ta Da!

Okay, here we go! First up is a pair of shorts for my older dd made from Jalie 2920 (the legging pattern): I added a little ribbon trim to the backside for looks and identification of front and backside when putting on!
On the front side I added a little rhinestone crystal heart at the bottom of the leg.
Next up are my leggings.....you don't want to see me in tight white leggings without the skirt on....I put a little heart in hot fix crystals at the bottom of my leg too....
Here is the tank top and the leggings under a skirt. Here, my youngest dd wanted to take the picture of me....I had to kneel down to get the tank top into the picture!
I added this little ribbon accent to the side of the shirt so it wasn't so plain....
Next up is my Burda 4-2009-122 shirt! I think it turned out pretty. At first I wasn't sure how I would like it, but after finishing it and trying it on with the tank top, I think it looks cute. This was pretty easy to make up....I bound the neck and front edges instead of doing facings, I don't particularly care for facings and a bound edge has a nice clean look. I did a rolled hem on the serger for the bottom hem and the sleeve edges using a shiny embroidery thread that matched the pink in the shirt. I turned all the seams in on themselves so the raw edges were enclosed and topstitched (is that a french seam?) so the inside has a nice finished look. For the casing, I serged the edges of the seam (at the middle) and then just topstitched it down from the right side.
And last on the list, here is my youngest modeling her new legging pants:
Again, I added a little rhinestone heart to the leg...
I added a ribbon trim to the backside (like on older dd's shorts)...
Close up of heart....
Well, that makes up for the lack of sewing in January, right? Now, what next???

Those are all so CUTE! I like that Burda top. I'm going to have to investigate that further, yours looks great.
