Remember the AG dolls pajamas I made for Ms. C. for Christmas? Well, I made her some matching pjs & a dress to wear as well, from knit fabrics.
Knits used to scare me but I'm doing better with them, now that I have a serger & have learned a few tricks, like using ball point needles.
I've been using this vintage Kwik Sew pattern as the base for all the tops, sometimes widening it at the bottom & by changing the sleeve length & finishes.
Like on the little top, shown above,
I used a knit from Hobby Lobby &
some stretch Cluny lace from JoAnns for the cuffs,
rather than ribbing, as shown in the pattern.
This fabric wanted to roll something fierce so
I starched the heck out of it, prior to cutting out the pattern.
I made pj bottoms, too, but
those went home with her before I could get a photo.
From the leftover scraps, I made Ms. C's Mom an insulated mug wrap.

I'm going to purchase a pretty white cup to slide it over &
will tuck in some gift cards to Starbucks for Valentines Day.
I hope you get a nice gift, too,
from someone who loves you!
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House.
Won't you join me in a hot cuppa something?
I'll be partying over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch
for her Metamorphosis Monday meme
as well as The Tablescaper's
