I used a pair of pants in my daughters closet as a pattern to make the pants. Then I used the bodice of one of my patterns to make the top of the shirt. Then I tweaked everything else. I was so excited to see it turn out- turn out well. I have been such a sub par sewer all my life. Things just never really turn out for me. SO this was truly a triumph. Wahooo. I am glad I kept on trudging along. I guess making all those curtains at our previous house gave me the experience I needed.
