What are you most proud of? I am most proud of three things: 1. Figuring out how to change the waistband from a fixed elastic waistband to an adjustable. It just makes sense to me that children's clothing be as flexible in their sizing as possible without sacrificing comfort or style. 2. Teaching myself enough about the Sihouette design software to recreate that cute applique...it too me a while, but I LOVED being able to have the Sihouette Cameo cut it all out for me with nice crisp edges, and now I can easily make more. 3. Using upcycled materials. I am committed to using upcycled materials in much of my sewing, and upcycled men's linen shirts are great for this project. I happened to find a medium weight linen shirt without a full button placket for $2, but I think you could easily just sew the placket closed and put it in the back. The tutorial already has you put a faux placket in the back. I say, use a real one and embellish it as you like!
