Fall Clothing: Girls Tops & Bottoms with Giveaway!

Welcome to the Fall Children's Clothing Series.  

During the month of September, I will be sharing with you some of my children's wardrobe.  Much of which this year I handmade.  Which was a challenge, but so much fun!

This week our focus is on Tops and Bottoms.
Today:  Girl Tops and Bottoms

Make sure you sign up for our GIVEAWAY of 3 Peek-a-Boo Patterns!!

Don't forget to link up your great children's clothing in our Fall ClothingLinky Party!

So this one is so cute and so simple.  I tested this top for Amy and it is great!  And her directions are spot on!  You might not think to put your little girl in a button-up, but this one is so good you have to.  I plan to make more of these, but with long sleeves.  Just haven't yet.  We'll see.

This is the signature dress you saw last week, however, it is now the tunic length and perfect with leggings.  Doesn't she look so comfy!  I used a lighter weight knit that will be great for fall and winter.  (Got it at Girl Charlee)

The leggings are Go To Patterns.  I couldn't find colors I wanted, so I just dyed some fabric to get what I wanted.  (Want to dye your own fabrics?  Check out this post.)


Go To Leggings by Go To Patterns

I made a couple of long sleeve Ringer T's for this little one.  I upcycled them from old tshirts and blouses of mine.  Worked out pretty well.  She looks pretty dang cute.

I know, you are like, BLACK on a baby!  But she is a red head and some things just look better than others.

The leggings are also Go To Patterns.  Dyed these ones too.

This top is the carousel top.  I upcycled this one too.  The fabric didn't love me or the sewing machine.  But I plan to try this one again soon.

I absolutely ADORE this pattern.  The bubble shorts are too cute and so simple and you get two different designs.  I have made several of them, but only got one pic up for you.  Sorry!  Go check them out.  She has some super cute stuff!

So this little outfit I made using our Peasantly Shir Dress Pattern in our Etsy Shop.  I just shortened the length, shirred the waistline instead of the bust, lengthened the sleeves and shirred them at the bottom.  I think it turned out super cute.  And if you know me, you know I love me some shirring!!  Check out the tutorial HERE or HERE or HERE.

What do you think?  Is she ready for fall?

  3. All those tops turned out so cute! It helps to have an adorable little model, though. :) I love recycling my old clothes, because if something doesn't turn out, I don't feel bad about tossing it because it would've gone in the trash anyway.

  4. Does anyone know of brilliant places to buy vintage fashion. I found this site which is amazing, but still looking for more stuff
