Since madam is so scrawny I trimmed the outer edges (and used them to make the ties) so there was some hemming involved, but I think any bigger that 6 months you could get away with just sewing the two sides together, shirring (or adding a casing for some elastic) and attaching some ribbon ties! This could even be made as a toddler shirt.
I decided to make it a halter, so I attached the ties at the middle and made sure I had enough length to tie a bow. Here's madam pretending she doesn't know what to do in front of the camera:
Sorry, I had my 50mm lens so only her eyes are really in focus, but you can see how I just sewed the ties together at a right angle, then attached them to the front (after shirring).
And here's a view of the back. Now that O is swimming around, it's rather challenging getting a decent pic of her on the ground...
I wasn't too sure if the back would sag since there's no ties, but it holds up great! Loving the little baby shoulders!!!
I think my next bandana project will be something like this: http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.223985305.jpg Aren't those baby cowgirl boots adorable!?!
NEXT! Jess at Craftiness is not Optional had a sew-along this week for her adorable Junebug dress (tutorial here: http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2011/07/junebug-dress-sew-along-part-1-pattern.html so of course I could not resist joining in. Showed DH when it was done and he complemented my fabric choice, which I could not have been happier about since it was a ReUse centre find!!! I think O will wear it to an upcoming wedding...
And theeen... there was this simple romper posted on Nap Time Crafters http://naptimecrafters.blogspot.com/2011/07/tie-sun-suit-tutorial.html (looove this blog) which looked so adorable on her little girl that I just couldn't resist:
So I'm thinking Olivia has plenty of clothes, but I CANNOT resist sewing for her!!!
