Very cute.  Love the little flamingo dress. And she will be very on trend as they say.
I've made one thing for my grandson as I have been busy doing things for a cruise.  But last thing being finished today so hoping to get a few hours to make another romper before Sunday.

LaChica they are lovely!  Isn't it fun having a girly to sew for!  Your fabrics are beautiful!

What's next on the list?  :)

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Wow so much! It's all lovely. I especially like the flamingo print items - today I am wearing a dress in  the pink version of that fabric  :D

Thanks for all the kind comments. I am enjoying making these little things. Grandchild no 2 due Nov 5 so I should be well practised by then.

Photo of the long-leg rompers. I folded out about 6cm of fullness from each piece, back & front, tapering to nothing at the base of the tucks. I think these patterns were designed to fit around a terry nappy. A column of hearts was embroidered along the 2 outside tuck lines. This coordinates with the teal/white hat. I used plastic poppers which I recently discovered and HAD to have in my stash. They're ideal for babywear & very easy to insert, no messing around with hammers and plastic dies.
