Well, I made Baby Girl another Strawberry Shortcake outfit! When Baby Girl first saw the Strawberry Shortcake Inspired Fabric, she immediately asked for one of her twirly dresses, aka the Daisy Dress I made her here. I originally wanted to make her some matching leg warmers, just like I did for Rapunzel Ballet Outfit here. Baby Girl had other ideas.

Luckily I had some extra fabric left over. I do not like any fabric going to waste. Grab this Strawberry Shortcake Inspired Fabric today, as tomorrow is the last day of the preorder. Go grab it here!
Since I had lengthened the bodice, her Daisy dress was too long, you would not be able to see her leg warmers under the dress anyways. Baby Girl insisted she needed footed tights, just like Strawberry Shortcake wears. So, I purchased The Wolf and Tree Abby’s Footed Tights Sewing Pattern and tried them out. You may find them here.
I am always a little nervous trying a new pattern, especially if I have never sewn anything similar before. However, I pleasantly surprised how quick and easy the Abby’s Footed Tights Sewing Pattern were to sew. I did make the size up than Baby Girl would normally wear, as I would for her to wear them throughout the winter months coming. Baby Girl is showing me here Passe Position in the above picture. She is really enjoying ballet.
Honestly, I am not sure which she likes more, gymnastics or ballet? She actually tells me both! Of course, I used the Honeydew Kisses Ocotillo Leotard Sewing Pattern. You may find it here. It is so easy to make, plus I love the skirted option. I used some stretch mesh from Joann Fabric for the skirt. You may find it here. The stretch mesh is so soft and not scratchy like tulle.
Now do not miss out on a smile like the above and go make one for the little girl in your life! Her joy makes me want to sew even more for her! Go now!
