Knotted Jumper and Ruffled Leggings

For today's tutorial you can head on over to the Moda Bake Shop to see what I've got cooking.  Here's a little preview.


Since we're friends I'll let you in on a little secret.  That's my nephew in the picture.  Until either my sister or I can figure out how to produce a girl there will continue to be some tortured little boys around here.  What can I do?  Really.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Wow! Fooled me!! Once I saw the picture I thought "what a cute little girl! I love the curls" I was shocked to see it was a boy. What a good sport! LOVE the dress!

  4. That poor boy. Keep lots of photos. That way when he is an annoying teenager you can bribe/threaten/blackmail him. :) Just gently hold it over his head that you have proof that he wore leggins and flowers in his hair. :)

    Great outfit. Can't wait to head over to Moda to check it out.

  6. shhhh!!!! don't tell your sister (or maybe to your broother -in-law) but your nephew is adorable as a 'girl'!!!!! ;)

  7. Your sister will know who to blame if he grows up to be a cross dresser. I have a confession too... when my third son was about nine months old, I dressed him in some girl stuff just to see what it would be like to have a little girl. Fortunately for him, my next baby was a girl.

  16. That is the prettiest little boy I have ever seen!!! I used to dress my little brother up like a girl (I told my mom I wanted a girl, so she did not hold up her end of the bargain....I just made due with what I had) =o) The jumper is too cute, as well.

  18. HAHA, my poor brothers have pictures of them dressed as girls but it was because they had older sisters who made them into living dolls.

  21. Precious. Love it all. Esp that lil boy. Poor guy. But really am I the only one who doesn't know what a jelly roll is? ha

  22. Lol, never would've known that was a boy! Especially how he's posing so nicely to show off the dress! What a good sport! Someday those boys will be so upset with you for these kinds of pictures! We can make girls in our family either! He have a few pics of boys with headbands with big flowers! What else is a mom with all boys to do? lol. Oh, and very cute outfit!

  24. Love the dress. Poor kid. I hope you guys don't use these photos against him someday. He's being a good sport. I didn't know he was a boy until you said so. Just goes to show, it's all about the clothes on little kids (when my daughter was wearing a yellow onesie, people said she was a cute little boy).

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha, that is so funny, I never would have known! But who could at that age? Bloggers sometimes just have to make do with what we've got, right??
    I love the outfit though! I want those leggings in every color!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I thought that looked like Coop. Pretty cute! Make me a jumper like that. (;

  40. I LOVE this dress.. too bad I have a boy and another boy on the way.. but since your nephew didn't seem to mind dressing up, maybe my son wouldn't either....

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a cute outfit! You can always borrow my girls (7 and 5). We live in Salt Lake County. They would love to be dressed up.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  43. adorable! i want it...NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That made me laugh out loud! How funny. Poor kid...never tell him. Or maybe do...when he's a naughty teenager.

    I'm sorry, but that ginormous brown ric-rac just made me have lustful feelings. Does it count that I have confessed? Because I might be guilty of stealing soon, as well!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh. my. heavens. my husband (yeah, he likes your blog too) and I just died laughing! Girl or Boy, he is theee most adorable little thing I have ever seen!

    P.S. I'm super excited that you're a "chef" over at the bakeshop!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Blahh ha ha ha! That is awesome. Coop makes an adorable girl. He looks like he is enjoying that outfit too. It's really cute. I'm sure Chloe would love it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. If your sister's son is this pretty, imagine what a girl of hers will look like! Beautiful child and dress!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love it!!! I have done the same thing in reverse. When my company was just starting out we needed a little baby to model one of out matching necktie sets, so my niece is the model on a lot of our pics.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love this and love it even more knowing that it is a little boy! He is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  52. I thought what a cutie with those curls... I had to scroll back up when you said it was your nephew... Love it!!! The ruffly leggings are great. I guess you and you sis better keep trying for a girl... but boys sure are fun! Thanks for posting.

    ReplyDelete
  53. hahahahahah he's very pretty, though :P

    ReplyDelete
  54. HAHAHAHA!! I am seriously praying that one of you get a girl soon because I really don't think you'll be able to afford that therapy one day.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love your blog and have spent the last hour reading your past posts (and I only got through June!). Thanks for sharing your craftiness and great ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  56. That is a boy? He's so cute!!! I hope there is no long-term damage from dressing him up. LOL! This is adorable. I'm digging the ric rac. I am featuring this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com You are oh so talented!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like the variety of strips sewn together to make the jumper.
    You'll have to post pictures of this little boy in his own clothes so we can see him being equally cute as himself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have a jelly roll waiting for a project, so I think I'm going to have to try this one too. It'll be so cute over a long sleeve shirt in the fall/winter. Cute boy, too!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just saw this post on Craft Gossip and decided to stop by. I am now happily following! That dress is so cute and I love the detail on the leggings! And I had to crack up when I read that your nephew was your model :) He will not be happy about that picture in about 10 years!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I LoVE the jumper and think it could transition into a super cute skirt for my preteen daughter (that is friends with your niece Maddie). I especially love your color/fabric choices. I am always a little leery sewing clothes because I feel like I am afraid of using the wrong fabric blends. Where do you shop? I love Hobby Lobby for cute designs but is it all just quilting fabric?
    I keep sewing purses that I was inspired to make from your blog back at Easter time. I'll have to post some pictures to share back. I really love your blog and it inspires me with clever ideas that I would actually enjoy making myself. Thanks!

  61. Would you want to figure out the wasteband for a grownup skirt? I bet you would look really cute in a modified jumper skirt... :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Adorable dress on an adorable kidlet. I was convinced he was one beautiful little girl. He's going to LOVE you for this post in 10 years. hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I saw this on Pinterest the other day. The dress is really adorable but the first thing that I thought was hey that's Cheri's nephew. Hee Hee! So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Do I need to stitch the ruffle on the leggings with a zig zag stitch or any special stitch to allow the fabric to stretch? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Trimble - Yes, you should use a zigzag stitch to sew the ruffles on the leggings.
