Applique & Ruffle Buns

My new favorite fabric is super thin and easy to ruffle chiffon. I have ordered it in different strip widths and various colors for ruffled pettiskirts to make for the grand daughters for Christmas.
I'll show those skirts at a later date, but for now I'll show how I added the 4" chiffon to a onesie for an especially nice outcome.
I folded the mint colored chiffon in half and just added it to the cotton ruffle seamline. It gives enough extra bulk to the cotton, that the ruffle sticks out from the pink onesie at about a 30 degree angle and doesn't flatten down.
 I put a little appliqued cupcake on the front, so it was perfect for the birthday party yesterday.
Although I didn't get a good shot of the outfit, the babe and her mom are cute anyway.
