Pretty Patriotic Outfit

When my daughter was a baby, I made her a patriotic pant set.  The fabrics I used are called Stars Tossed and Dynamic Duo (Red/White). When I first started this sewing project, it was going to be a patriotic dress, but she already had a patriotic dress.  So then I decided to do a shirt and pants, but then I had a brain fart.  So I changed my mind and was going to make a patriotic pinafore, but then I told myself NO MORE PINAFORES!  I had already made three, and they fit a little big on my daughter, so I wanted to try something else.  So then I decided AGAIN to sew a shirt and pants.  So that's what I did.  This is one of my first sewing projects when I was a newbie, and I made this oufit without a pattern.
The red and white circle fabric is called Dynamic Duo. And the blue strip is called Stars Tossed.

For the back, I made button holes in the shirt and made a tie to close the back of the shirt.

These cute and comfy pants were made with the Stars Tossed fabric. They remind me of a bandana.

This baby outfit is perfect for Memorial Day and 4th of July events.
