Back in the Saddle again!

I titled this post Back in the saddle again because it feels like its been ages since I last sat at my sewing machine sewing something fun for my little girl! Not that I havent been sewing-oh no Ive been doing tons of that! Keeping up with the many Halloween Costume orders that I have received has got me quite exhausted. But just the other day I got an itch to create something different, an itch that just wouldnt go away :) You see my little girl just tried out for and got accepted to a little Jazz Dance Performing Group called the "Sparklers!" (now isnt that adorable) Well anyway, she desperately wanted a "jazz dance outfit" and because she did so well and made the team I really wanted to surprise her with the "jazz dance outfit" of her dreams. So away we went to the local dance supply store with big smiles on our faces, only to be crushed by the fact that they had no such outfit for my extra small little girl. Wait, Scratch that! We did find one pair of size 6 jazz pants (my daughter still fits 3t mind you) that the employee really tried to sale me. These pants were 2 inches to big for her  and were $30! There was no way I was buying a $30 pair of pants especially if they didnt fit! So I told my little one not to worry- I would get her a "Jazz Dance Outfit"!!
Remembering one of Katy's swim suit tutorials from No Big Dill that I really wanted to use this summer but ran out of time to actually do and started thinking that it would work perfectly for the job! Using her fabulous tutorial as a guideline I created my girl a fancy hotpink leotard and then on my own a basic black jazz pant/yoga pant with a fold over waist band (which I will be carrying in my shop soon)
Oh and nevermind the undies in the shots :)


  1. Adorable! She is too cute and so is the outfit. :) It's obvious she loves it! I'd be so excited if you'd link this to my "think pink" party!

  2. Oh my goodness an All Pink Party!! I am so there! Thank you!

  3. That is really really cute. I love the hot pink and black combo, and the pants are fantastic. Actually, I like the leo too.:)

  4. FABULOUS photos! Love the hot pink - she'll be the cutest dancer in the class!

    Hope you have a great week!
