Baby Beach Outfit

I was making my friend Sabrina a baby sling for her darling baby Jack with some StarWars and beach print fabric she picked out from fabricworm.com. Of course I over-ordered the yardage I would need for the sling thinking I could make Jack and my Zoe some pants out of the fun fabrics. After I cut out the pants from the usual simple pattern I used, I looked down at the fabric and thought that what was left already looked like a pillowcase-top pattern.

So, I lopped off the extra fabric:

Folded it in half so the arm-holes would be symmetrical:

I then stitched it together on the sides and covered the arm-holes and top with 1/2″ bias-tape and tucked in some natural, cotton ribbon I had laying around from a present or something.

In the end, a pretty cute summer outfit. I think I’ll keep the selvage showing for now – it’s sorta cute.

I might be getting carried away with the bias-tape and the pillow-case tops. I made Hazel a top and skirt out of a teal gingham. I have more and will make Zoe a matching outfit. Yay for matchy matchy girls, or ew?
