Oh man I'm good at naming posts. Seriously, I think I have a gift.
Anyway, I made this little diddy a while back, I think in May, but I didn't post it right away because it was a gift for my niece and then I promptly forgot about it and it sat in my archives on this blog until now. Better late than never right?!
I had seen shirts like this before on other blogs, but I decided to wing it and figure out how to make it on my own. It's how I roll.
So for the bib bit, I went with a slightly pockety design and made sure that it butted nicely up against the neck of the shirt.
And I rounded the bottom using a little Tupperware cup.
It's by no means perfect, but it worked! I cut little notches in so it would curve better.
I then cut a piece to make the ruffle to go around the bib thingy
I had a shirt that Aubrey had never worn just laying around so I used that, perfect!
I zig-zagged the edges and then did a gather stitch (is that what it's called?!) for the ruffle part...
And then gathered to my desired length and place it behind the bib to make sure I had the right length.
Off to the sewing machine!
I thought it looked a little plain so I decided to add some buttons, between buttons and ruffles, I think you can pretty much fix any project ;)
I then tried it on Aubrey....
....and could NOT stop laughing! Good thing I didn't make it for her.
Seriously! It was plastered to her! But doesn't she look precious?!? Love her grin!
