I found a large scrap of gray leftover from a shirt I made me, which was plenty large enough to make a basic skirt for Laurel. I sewed the tulle ruffles on in a wave pattern and with the remainder of the roll I made a layer of tulle under the cotton fabric then constructed the skirt. Basically this outfit is just covered in gathers and ruffles. I love how poofy it is!
The gray made me think of elephants so I made a shirt with an elephant holding a balloon. I used Terra's Treasures pattern for the peasant knit top (it doesn't look like she still sells that exact pattern anymore, but there is another one that is similar but with more details). It would have been a very easy shirt if my serger would have cooperated and then the bobbin elastic. The knit came from the scraps of a clearance shirt that I cut up to make the picnic shirt. I appliqued the elephant and balloon on.
