So I have purchased and downloaded a couple of kiddies pattern to make some clothes for Miss C, specifically "The Geranium Dress" from Made by Rae, I even cut the pattern out and purchased, of course, 4 different voiles to make it....is she now the proud owner of 4 different dresses you ask?...not yet...

I have also purchased this pattern from Wink Designs, the Butterfly Breeze Dress and Top at http://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/winkhandmade
Does Miss C have a new top using this pattern? Oh yes she does!
I am not exaggerating when I say it was easy as....I was very slow as I wanted to make sure I followed the instructions implicitly (something I rarely do) and didn't disappoint myself by missing something out in the steps that resulted in a mistake further along
.....really for a beginner this pattern is perfect.Miss C is tall so the only thing I should've done was try it on before hemming as I would have adjusted the hem slightly, and although she is 16mnths I used the 2-3 yr size to be safe.
Sorry for the crap iPhone pics I was chasing her around......also please note the fancy schmancy stitch on the sleeves courtesy of LM ( Lady Muck )
