How-To: Adding Piping to Outfits

One of my favorite things to do on the Create Kids Couture Facebook page is to scroll through all the posts made by our fans. I hear about our fans stalking our page all the time, looking for testing opportunities and new pattern releases...well, I spend my time reverse stalking our fans! HEHEHE! I love looking at pictures of your work and I'm always impressed with your creations. And every once in a while, I'm really "wowed." Well, that happened a few weeks ago when our fan Tina Martin-Nims posted a photo of her gorgeous Whitney's Ruffled Neck Romper.

First of all, forget about the romper and look at that baby!!! She is soooo cute!

If only chubby leg rolls were just as endearing on an adult, I'd be all set! Wait, back to the romper...check out the gorgeous piping Tina added to the neck ruffles! It adds dimension to the piece and really makes it stand out.

Like any good stalker, I immediately emailed Tina and asked her if she would be my bff   would be willing to do a little tutorial for our fans to teach us how to do this too! And she said yes!!! (I'm not sure if she felt threatened by my persistent stalking and that's why she agreed, or if she really is just an awesome person, either way, I'm thrilled!)

Tina is a hardworking military spouse and stay at home mama, so I hope you all will show her some love for taking the time out of her busy life to do this for us! Go visit her Etsy Shop Damsels N Dragons and add her to your favorites.

You can find the tutorial here on Tina's brand- spankin- new blog. Whether you own this pattern or not, you should really check out this tutorial because piping can dress up just about anything and Tina does a great job showing us how to use it! 

Thank you so much, Tina for sharing your work with us!
