Ruffles and Baby Bottoms!

Seriously, can there be a cuter combination than ruffles and baby bottoms???
 
I absolutely adore bubbles and rompers on babies!  So much more practical than dresses at this age, yet so incredibly cute! 
This is the Ruff or Ruffled Romper by Ellie Inspired in Michael Miller's Yellow Diddly Dots from the Happy Tones Collection.  These dots just make me happy!  Once again, my sweet friend Kam totally rocked the embroidery--which just MAKES this romper! 
The ONLY complaint I have about this pattern is with the ruffle placement in the back.  It does not match the photo on the pattern cover.  If you look at the cover photo, the ruffles are stacked towards the bottom and you cannot see the top seams.
However, if you follow the dots on the pattern pieces, the ruffles are more spread out.  Not a big deal, but it did make sewing the leg casing a bit more complicated at the side seam and gave a different look to the back. 
 
I added ric rac to the bottom of the ruffles and used a rolled seam at the top.  I also adjusted the elastic to fit Adelyn's body (the original measurements were too small in the legs yet too large in the waist).  Again, no biggie.
 
This is the second Ellie Inspired romper I have sewn and I am very pleased with the patterns and end results.  These are not "quick sews," but the time is worth it for such a cute outfit!
