"Gray Challenge" part 3

You already saw what I made for the gray challenge, but I also wanted to show you some of the lovely things the other girls made.

 One lady made a matching set of boy and girl rompers. The boy's is smocked with cars and the little girl's with a pink geometric. They are adorable!

This American Girl Doll got a whole ensemble of gray dress with red trim, red coat and hat. The coat is also lined with the gray. The picture doesn't show just how cute this set is.
A very ambitious and talented friend made these 2 dresses. They both have a beautiful coral smocking/trim, but the color doesn't show up well in the pictures.
She hasn't quite finished the 2nd dress with center smocking, but it is coming along. She will also make a boy's matching romper for siblings that are 4, 2, and 4mos. old! What fun!

Can you believe this pretty dress (with matching bloomers, not shown) was made by a first-time smocker! The Collars, Etc. pattern was popular in this challenge.

Perfection! Chocolate bunnies on Easter dresses. I love how they are co-ordinating but not exactly the same.

The boys were well-represented by this cute summer jon jon with a smocked sailboat insert. I love how she put it off-center. I can picture this one for beach pictures, can't you?

This dress has a beautiful pale green underskirt and matching gray polka-dot pockets. They all go together so well!

This dress is a classic! The flower-smocked bib is removable and has a CC "Patty" underdress of gray fine corduroy. The dress was pretty all by itself but the bib adds color.

This sweet yoke dress would have gone well with the sibling set, above. It has the same pretty coral smocking. Don't you love the tucks and tiny buttons and the crisp white collar?

I was amazed at how everyone made such elegant creations from a simple gray striped fabric. I hope we do a fabric challenge again- it was a lot of fun!
