Summer's ending, but I had to do just one more summer outfit for Miss Ella before I turn to Christmas gifts.

My mom made the ruffly pants and asked me to make a top to go with them. We made this outfit a size larger to fit next year.

The design on the shirt is a Sue D. original from MyGardenED (Yoriko's site). I love how it turned out!

A very nice outfit , I have some pink ruffle fabric just like this and I didn't know what to make out of it. Now I do. Tell your mom this is a great idea, I never thought to make pants and also love the top.

Mom said this came to her one night as she was going to sleep! Also said to tell you good luck sewing the ruffle stuff.

Fantastic outfit! I like the use of buttons on the shirt and the bright cheery colors you chose.

What a cute outfit. Never thought of pants made out of the ruffle material. Will be a project runway child wearing this darling outfit.

Lovely outfit. Love the pants does the fabric come with the ruffles?

sjbrower by sjbrower 08 Sep 2015

Yes, it's a nylon-feeling knit fabric (from Comes in a bunch of colors. My mom said that to sew it, she taped the ruffles down so they would stay in place as she serged the seams.

I am blessed that she is still with me and can still do some things that she loves. My mom is 85, and her eyesight is not what it used to be, so I expect these days are limited. We will enjoy them while we can.... and enjoy something different when this is gone. Thanks for your comments... Hope you can give your mom an extra hug next time you see her. --Sharon

WOW! Sharon this is just stunning! I love Yoriko's flowers and adding those delightful floral buttons just makes the outfit. Your Mum has done a wonderful job on those ruffled pants too. Well done the two of you. Ella will love this outfit. Love Chris

Great look on both. Congrats to Sue, too. How about an orange-y brown shirt for fall into winter with these cute pants?
