With all my moaning about what i'm NOT allowed to make the girl, occasionally she believes in me and I get it really right!
We were shopping one evening after work in a chain store (Cotton On Kids for you nosey parkers out there heehee) and we phone a pair of full length summery overalls. My poor kid, being of average size, didn't fit into their tiny size 8's, unless she wanted a front wedgie every time she wore them.
I had a hunt online and found this pattern- problem was, all sold out in Oz, luckily Ebay came through with the goods and I bought a copy from a seller in the US.
SO when it finally arrived, we had already been through the stash and knew we need to purchase fabric (doh!) and this nice voile from Spotlight was perfect! In her fave colours!
this is what I got when I asked for a smile
I wasn't sure about the size- she was anywhere from a 10-14 on the pattern!! I made a 10 with 1/2 inch seams, slightly smaller around the waist so 'front wedgies' will NEVER occur! And plenty of room to grow!
She wore it today (weather hasn't really been permitting this week, but she didn't care today) with her white Saltie sandals, and I was the proudest mumma ever!
Note: She has asked for a skirt one now, and a long skirt one (?maxi dress style), but without the ruffle. Better get cracking!
