A little gift set for a little lady

Before I broke my sewing machine yesterday, I (thankfully) managed to finish up a baby gift set I'd been working on for a friend who's having a little girl in about a month. The final set includes a sun hat, pinafore, bloomers, and a matching burp cloth.
I originally looked all over for online tutorials for the items, but everything online was sized for a larger baby or toddler, and I'm not confident enough yet in my ability to re-size patterns, especially for babies, to try to adjust them for my needs. So, when Hancock's had patterns on sale recently for $2 each, I found one that included everything by the burp cloth and snatched it up.
The pattern worked out great, and except for the hat, it all came together quite easily. The hat wasn't that difficult to put together actually, just time consuming.
The main fabric for all of the pieces is a pink, yellow, and orange madras fabric I bought at Joann's last year. I love how girly and summery it is without being over the top. The inside of the dress and hat are lined with a yellow print from Mod Green Pod's Free to Grow collection.
I finished off the set with a matching burp cloth because you can really never have too many burp cloths.
Here's hoping the little lady loves it!
