My oldest made the outfit below. She's does a great job at sewing. I was there helping her read the pattern, because according to her "it wasn't in English". There is a certain learning curve to understanding patterns - in fact it's taken me years :)
Although she's good at sewing, she doesn't enjoy it for very long. So I helped her out with the other outfit. The shirt was more complex - so I'm glad I had her start with the easier one.
We used Simplicity Pattern 3936 and made options E & F.
Thanks to my sister for lending us the pattern!
This was a really inexpensive gift. We used my husbands old jeans for the pants. I had the elastic and the fabric for both of the shirts already. So we just had to buy a small amount of white fleece, red knit fabric and some velcro.
