ruffle baby legs tutorial.

Photobucket

Kacie is totally into socks. She puts on 2 or 3 pairs at once. She has baby legs under her jeans, on her arms, over her stripey socks, and ankle socks over her baby legs. She'll put on as many pairs as she can. AND she manages to fit 8 pairs of "pwincess pannies" over her little rear, too. She is quite padded these days.

So I added ruffles to her life. Because ruffles make everything better. I say.

Here's a new idea for your baby legs:

OR, you can do the same thing on top of a pair of socks.

I love her not-so-baby legs.

Especially with ruffles.

The socks are cute, but your model blows them out of the water. She is so darling. Baby legs are the best (even if they aren't so baby anymore.)

Jenny said...

what a wonderful idea! thank you! i'm curious, did you make the dress she's wearing? i'd love to know where you found either the pattern or the dress.

cally said...

I did Jenny. I wish I had a pattern for you but I'm not that organized when I sew. Maybe next year I can put together a tutorial.

Thanks!

Courtney said...

First of all, this child is adorable. Second of all, I love these so much I kind of want to make a pair for myself, too!

Thank you for the tutorial!

Merry Christmas.

Hi, I LOVE these. I just made a bunch of them today. I used knit fabric for the ruffles instead of t-shirts, but Thank you for the wonderful idea!

The baby legs are sweet but that dress is beautiful. What great items you make. We have several girls and I would love to make them such beautiful clothes. Maybe you'll find time (haha, I understand life gets busy)to post directions on making her gorgeous dress!

I love the socks. But that dress is simple and adorable. What material is it and do you have a tutorial for it.
thanks,
Sandra

cally said...

Thanks Sandra, I don't have a tutorial for the dress. Maybe I should think about that. It's made out of Cream Kona Cotton, though. My favorite.
