Bubble Top for Little Momo

This has been a summer of sewing for me.  I am just so into making clothes for my daughter right now.  Since I did not make a dress last week, I had to make something this past weekend even if that meant one sleepless night for me (because I am really slow at sewing...)

Halter top and bubble skirt are two things I have been wanting to try for some time now.  I found a pattern that combine those two in one!   It is McCall's M6271.

I was planning to make a dress (view B), but I changed my mind while cutting out the fabric.  My daughter always wears a diaper cover or leggins under the dress anyway, so I decided to make a top with shorts (view A).
After trying out one of the McCall's patterns and finding that patterns run big (post here), I was more careful this time.  I compared the pattern pieces to Momo's store-bought dress, and was surprised the pieces were just about the right size.  I made the bodice a little shorter, but I think that was not necessary.

Yellow and gray color combination does not look as fresh as used to.  I bought those fabrics a while ago, with an intention of making tiered ruffle skirt.   I never got around to make the skirt, and I kind of lost the interest.   Those fabrics have been sitting on my table for months, so I used them to try out this pattern.

This top fits great on Momo, and I love the bubble shape.  The pattern is not too large at all.  If Momo wants to wear this next year, I will have to replace the elastics in the back and make it loose.  The only thing I think need the change is that the shoulder straps should be a little shorter. 

 Overall I like this pattern. Next time I think I will make a dress.

Linking up to those fun parties.
