I made these on the weekend.
The Teddy Bear on for the smallest Munchkin. A size 2.
Bunny one for Punky. A size 5.
Details of the bunny

I was given a few boxes of fabric from a friend who was moving into a senior home. She opened me to her sewing room and said take whatever you can use. 

This lenght of Cambray a shirt weight fabric was in that stash. I was saving it for a mens shirt, but decided to make something a little sweeter! 

I used mom's Janome 9000 for the embroidery. A machine I will inherit when the time comes, but use for fancy designs now.
Stitching on the hem using my Janome 6000.

The pattern is a Toddler Kwiksew no longer sold.

Glad to see you back! The jumpers are cute. I like jumpers for Ella too, it's easier to get her to put on a long sleeve shirt than a sweater. I have a new machine to do fancy stitching and can't wait to get started.

Good to see you back with us M!
Looks like you've been a busy Mom.
When my youngest daughter was born, I got a Kenmore machine with built in fancy embroidery stitches. I did a lot of little dresses for her and some table linens. I'm still using the machine though the fancy stitches no longer work. This machine has made 23 quilts in the past 6 years without a breakdown!

Your little dresses are so pretty. You've inspired me to get smocking and sewing again, but having trouble finding the dots to make the pleats. I made many dresses when my girls were young. We have a couple of new babies arriving this year in our extended family which would be fun to smock for.
