I made these birthday cake tees for sale in my Etsy shop a few years ago and seriously sold them all day long. The technique for how to make the ruffles on the pants is also given away in the pattern. It is the same technique used to make the ruffles on the cake. It can be a little tricky and takes some practice, but once you get it down, you won't want to stop making these! You could also use pre-ruffled fabric which can be found at Jo-Ann's, Hancock's, or other big box retailers. The pattern comes with printable pattern pieces and I show you step-by-step how to applique them. I really wish I had more time to applique! I especially enjoy embroidered hand work and absolutely love boutique tees for my girls.
A huge thank you to Jen Anderson for these photos. I really love her work and check her site often to see what she is up to.
