Batting 2 out 3...
1. Simplicity 2466 - Daisy Kingdom...fail...at least for now - going into the closet for 2-3 years until she grows. This is supposed to be a top and while the length is slightly long, it is HUGE around the shoulders.
2. Ottobre 1-2008-18 "Jigsaw" pinafore dress...win!
Alice in Wonderland appliques, fun fabric and details - this was a blast to sew. Check out that Cheshire cat - smile on front, but full on the back!
3. Finally - Little Londyn's "Posh Pixie" pattern - in progress in this first image - for a test fit
I added pre-cut chiffon bunched and rolled into trim.
My husband thought the chiffon roll was toilet paper. I told him if he used it as such it would be the most expensive a$$-wipe of his life.
I finished this after she went to bed, so I had employ an alternate model to take pictures: Winston, our 23lb, size 5T cat.
This and the Alice outfit just need coordinating shorts. The neon green fabric seen in the background of the last photo is going to become shorts for the Little Mermaid look.
