I made this little number for my friend’s daughter who just celebrated her Third Birthday. I wish I could photograph her wearing it because she is just about the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen!
Plus, the curved bodice and high/low hem trend had me intrigued.
This was a very easy pattern to follow for the most part. The initial instructions for the sleeves had me a bit confused, so I immediately opted for the second method for sewing them. It’s very nice to have options, because sometimes certain ways of doing things just make more sense. That said, I screwed up the alternate sleeve sewing method TWICE before I got it right—I think I’ll blame preggo brain on that one!
I used a Robert Kaufman Linen/Cotton blend fabric in a lovely sky blue for the main fabric, and a blue and white cotton toile for the lining and hem facing.
I think it turned out really sweet and I can’t wait to see it on the Birthday Girl! I will likely be making one for Miss P and #3, and will definitely share it here when that happens 🙂
