Anyway, I figured there was enough material left over for a top. Once I had the basic shape Rubes informed me that she didn't like her belly showing. (I'm hoping this bit of modesty will keep through the teenage years.) Thus what little fabric was left became a waist band.
Hard to tell here but I added a few flowers down the center seam of the waist band to pretty it up a bit. I love it on Rubes. She looks sooooo good in orange.
