5 quick tunics for Eva

There have been so many big projects lately that I hardly had time for anything simple. So For the cold season I only sewed one top for Eva and she was wearing mainly RTW to kindergarten lately. One evening after picking her up from the kindergarten we went out to eat at a restaurant. She was wearing her plaid top with circle skirt. It was badly stained from her day activities but I still felt she was the best dressed kid around. So I immediately decided I really need to make her new outfits. Fast.
So I decided to cut 5 at once. So it will be just sewing after... I used the same pattern from the plaid top -  the bodice of the  jumpsuit without the scooped back and added a big circle from McCall's 7542 big sleeve for the outer line and some kitchen plate for the inner line( tested a few to see witch one will fit better in the top opening).

    1st one I used some crap left from a top I made for myself ages ago.  And waited until I switched to dark colors to attach the neck and sleeve bindings. For this one I choose a high low skirt.
The next one was a pink one. I did the skirt even in length added a ruffle to it and doubled it. I also added a collar and made matching leggings. ( i was really trying to eat all the fabric ).
 Next one was a thin fabric left over after making her 2 pairs of 3/4 leggings for the summer. She really enjoyed this one. Probably because the fabric was so light and soft. It was impossible to get her to change out of this after photos.
4th version - light low again and leggings:
last version. I made it one side longer then the other. By this version Eva really got her twirl good:
Made 7 new items and bought 7 new fabric - debt up to 179...
