The first is an adorable t-shirt that I whipped up for the little guy. I used a pocket t-shirt (removed the pocket) and then appliqued the chick on with heat n' bond. The words are fabric "puff paint". I am very happy with how this turned out!
HERE. It was super quick and easy. And he actually wore it all morning without a complaint!
Isn't he so handsome!
I used the tutorial found HERE with a few minor adjustments.
Here is the back of my skirt. Kelli does not really show what the back of hers looks like. So this is what I came up with.
Before running a gathering stitch on my machine I sewed in a casing for a piece of elastic. (see photo) I then followed the directions for sewing on the waistband and tie belt. I made the casing of my elastic as long as the gap between the two sides of the waistband.
