One of the neatest things about making custom made kids clothes is the requests that I get from time to time from customers. About a month ago I got a request from a lady that wanted a denim type dress for her grandaughter for a family portrait that was going to be taken at Thanksgiving time. Everyone is going to be dressed in denim so we decided on a chambray jumper/pinafore dress with the classic petticoat dress underneath. I don' t have the photo of the child yet because the pictures haven't been taken but here is a picture of the dress.
I think this jumper/pinafore dress has got to be my most popular dress that I have made so far. You can do so much with it. In the summer months you can wear it alone with the matching bloomers and than in the cooler months you can wear it over a blouse or the petticoat dress and for added warmth you can add pantaloons. This outfit is so versatile and since it's custom made you can make it any type of fabrics that you would want.
