Hi all! I made this top for my neighbor's new baby a while ago. I will share a quick tutorial with you.
1. I bought the type of underwear that folds in the front like kimono. You will need a shirt, and some lace.
2. Treat the edges of the lace with Serger or zigzag stitches.
3. I folded 1/2" from the rough edge of the lace and sewed two lines using the largest stitch setting. One is 1/8" from the edge, the other 1/2" from the edge. Then pull those two threads to make ruffles.
4. Pin the lace onto the front edges along the neck line. Sew in the middle of the two stitched lines. Repeat the process to make one more ruffle out of a lace and sew it on to the bottom edge.
Since I don't have a baby anymore at home (even though my children seem to act like it sometimes...), it is so much fun to come up with little baby items to work on. Don't you think there is something about baby stuff that brings smiles, "ohhh"s and "Ahhh"s?
