Ruffle Top Done!

Errr...I started the PJs for Hanan I mentioned in last post, almost finished it, got sidetracked with a new project and ended up finishing this one instead. Is this normal in sewing world? :-D

I love how this one turned out. Made from Carson Ruffle Shirt Pattern I purchased on etsy. Fabric is from the lovely Chocolate Lollipop Collection by Anna Maria Horner.

The pattern is fairly easy, I liked the chic ruffle design. Challenges I faced at my current novice sewer stage - the top ruffle refused to overlap the middle ruffle as it curled up in U-shape when gathered, had to cut another longer piece of fabric; the top ruffle ended up a bit stiff (not flowy) when the front and back pieces were sewn together. I must have did something wrong somewhere. The valuable lesson from this project - I made my own matching bias tape! The one sewn at neckline and armholes matches the bottom and back ruffle. Almost got my fingers burned by the iron, but I totally love it!

Cutie Pie Hanan and cue the runny nose!
From the back

Hanan, as usual so happy when I put it on her for the photo shoot, even when she's actually down with flu and coughing heavily (am a bit worried actually with all the H1N1 scare going around).
