I only did a couple of alterations to the pattern. I added the ruffle at the top edge to the bottoms. I lined the top front and lettuce edged the bottom hemline (I used wooly nylon in the serger top and bottom loopers and regular serger thread in the needle). I also fully lined the bottoms. I added an inch to the waistline of the bottoms and the top bottom edge. She isn't petite like her sister. In fact, I think in a few years she'll be taller than I am!!! :)
She got into posing for the camera:

This suit has an attached skirt that covers up most of the bottoms. I made the bottoms out of a contrast coordinating material. You can see them peeking out in this side shot.Chez Ami. (If you have never visited over there, go now and see the cute kids fabrics you can buy!) All in all, I am very happy with this new suit!

I found some lining from the same Amy Butler line, here is the laminated fabric for the raincoat (same as Kathi's):
And the lining:
Did I mention that I found all of this great stuff at fabric.com? Yeah, and I used a 20% coupon and added a couple of other things to reach $35 to get the free shipping! Score! (Although, that is not what my dh calls it when he pays all of my fabric bills.....). So, the only part left to that project that I needed was a zipper, so off to zipperstop for my plastic separating ykk zipper. If you have never shopped zippers from them, you should check it out. I have always been happy! I even received a notice about an hour later that it was already shipped!! Now that is service! So, in a couple of weeks, my dd should have a great raincoat (and all the rain will be done here in sunny sun diego........). So did I mention I bought a couple of other fabrics at fabric.com? Here they are:
I bought these because I was thinking of a cute skirt for dd. I had this pattern in mind, so, of course, I had to go and buy it as well:
I actually had a hard time finding this pattern! I finally found it here at this site.
Oh yeah, and I got a package today with fabric in it!! It was from Chez Ami! I purchased these fabrics from their clearance sale they had for $3/yd (2 yard minimum). These two are swimsuit fabrics for the girls (and maybe me):
