What are you most proud of? It's very comfortable to wear and it looks adorable on. Of course, most anything looks adorable on a 3 year old.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get some pretty fabric. This cotton cupcake fabric has a glitter finish. Very girly. Look for a fabric that has a design you can "fussy cut" for the top applique.

I believe this is out of print but I just checked "SewBaby" site and they have 8 yards of this left. JoAnn's does not have this one but they have a lot of other CupCake prints.

I haven't sewn childrens clothes in years. But I'd like to try this for my granddaughter. How do you make the ribbon gathering on the t-shirt??

You can use 1" bias binding or a 1" finished fabric strip (doesn't have to be bias" cut it the length of the underarm seam & sew it down the middle & on each side. Thread the ribbon on a safety pin & run it up 1 side & down the other ( making a small loop at the top) Sew a 1" line of stitching close to the top so it can't be pulled out & knot the ends for the same reason. The fabric strip can be sewn to either the front of the shirt or the inside.
