Red face DDs 1st Birthday outfit... opinions please!

Okay, so I am NOT a seamstress. I haven't sewn since I took a very basic class when I was 12-13ish. I am working on an ancient machine that only does a straight stitch so don't judge me
I decided to throw this together this morning. I just sewed on the little cupcakes that I cut out of the fabric and made a bow and stitched it on. I think it's pretty darn cute Then I decided to make a skirt out of the cupcake fabric and I'm not very happy with it... so I took some action shots of her in the skirt that I made and one that we bought from TCP awhile back. I am leaning toward TCP skirt... what do you guys think?



Thanks for looking...

They are both cute skirts. I have to admit I am loving the tutu-ish yellow one with the shirt. She is adorable.

To make the cupcake one fuller, just cut more fabric and gather more. The other way is to make strips and sew them together. If you want some instructions, I can help you. It's basically cutting 3 strips at different lengths (2 for her, shes small!!!) and gather, sew them together. I can add a few pics if you'd like.
I think the tutu style one is the winner for a birthday set tho!! GREAT job!

So cute! The skirt you made is adorable, but I would use the TCP one just because I think simplicity is better and the printed skirt looks a little busy with the shirt but you could use a different solid color shirt with the cupcake skirt for regular use.
