Then I was off! Outfits came flying from the machines. Here are some of them.
Capris (more like pedal pusher length)
Denim shorts with decorative stitching around the bottom

More decorative stitching to do two jobs: mark the front so she puts them on the right way around and to stabilize the elastic so it won't roll
This has turned out to be the favorite so far
with matching capris (almost full length, so she can wear them 2 years)
two pairs of capris which match several things
such as this top (made from her great grandma's long-ago top scraps)
and this sundress
Close-up of the puffy pockets I designed for the sundress. I could not find a way to sew them on with a machine, so I tried to nail them down by hand (something I really try to avoid).
