Way to make a school uniform fun –

How are the straps in the back? crossed? Do they stay up? I have an old pattern and was thinking of planning something like this for a wild 3 yr old but my thought was the straps would be flying all over the place.

Yours is so cute though I think i may go ahead with it

mommymita – the straps are crossed in the back but she still complained that the fell down during school (although once she got home, I didn’t see them fall once). But, I might add bias tape loops at the shoulders to string the straps through.

Kage – Of course! You should see how it spins. It’s a complete circle of fabric.

I was wondering if you make these “uniforms” to sell?
I would be interested :)

I wish someone would make them to sell! I’m too selfish with my minimal sewing time that I reserve it all for myself and my own projects :)
