We chose the fabric, and I decided what I wanted to make each person. These are the first of the outfits and they just so happened to be shorts. Miette has a lot of dresses so I wanted to make something a little different. And since I'll be making a dress for her friend, C, I didn't want her to have a dress as well. Although, I will have extra fabric so she will be getting a new dress anyway!
For Miette, I used the (FREE) Pleated Playsuit pattern from Elegance and Elephants. I purchased her bubble pocket shorts pattern and have already made 4 pairs of them, and I absolutely love making these shorts. Aren't they adorable?

Her patterns are easy to understand and come together very quickly. The main fabric is Les Amis by Michael Miller, Lil Meadow in peach and is accented by a brown linen.
Fishsticks Designs. The Inside or Out Pocket Pants/Shorts. I used the same brown linen as Miette's romper and accented his pockets with Les Amis by Michael Miller, Socks the Fox in coral.
Since H is wearing cloth diapers, I have to make his clothes a bit bigger to accommodate that extra bulk. So even though he is 8 months old, I made the 18 month size and they fit great! A little on the long side but I can pull them over the diaper no problem.
I have a dress, another pair of bubble pocket shorts and a pinafore to make before next month. I can't wait to see all the pieces together and finished!
