A few weeks ago I made this pair of bloomers for my daughter:
I did not, however, make a coordinating shirt because I had seen a simple tank top at Target that I knew would match perfectly (plus it seemed like too much work for something that I knew would be stained by the second wear).
But, the bloomers reminded me of something from a cute boutique, and I wanted to give the top that same look.
This process is so simple, it shouldn't even be considered a tutorial.
I pinned my embellishment around the collar area, but it would have been cute to go around the waist, or even in a straight line from the collar down to the hem. Don't you love this rose ribbon-y stuff? I picked it up from Hobby Lobby in the "by the yard" ribbon section. They also had it in chocolate brown. I think it would be adorable around the edge of a lampshade.
Then I sewed it on by hand. And that's it. From plain and cheap to boutique chic.
I really wanted to get a photo of her in the entire outfit, but we had a potty training emergency just minutes after she was dressed. Believe me, for those 15 minutes that she wore the entire ensemble, she was the best-dressed toddler around.
