For my Eleanor

I had some time this week to sew some things besides aprons, so I decided to make my daughter a cute little shorts set.  The top was made from a remnant I picked up that I thought was cute and some solid pink cotton (with a little stretch to it) for the shorts.  The shorts are just simple elastic waist ones.  The top has tucked pleats around the neckline and a couple buttons sewn on for decoration.  It fastens with a button in the back.  I like the way the top bells out.  If I were to lengthen it, it could easily be a cute dress, especially if I added some cute capped sleeves to it!  And as you can see, it's quite comfortable for her to wear.  So much so that she could fall asleep in it while wandering through a store with her Grammie.
