Now that the weather's thaaaat much closer to warm, I'm ready to make some easy summer stuff for the girls. Sunday night I found this little pattern (Butterick See & Sew B5119) in my stash while looking for those embroidered girls and thought, why not?
Why not, indeed? Oooh, I love it. So simple and quick and ready for warm weather!
Alas, Fidget threw some kind of tantrum about it and ended up in time out.
This is not how I expected the Big Reveal would go.
I cut a size 3, because she is long-waisted. But the neckline's a little showy for my taste, so I shortened the elastic in the casing and now it fits much better.
(Yes, my kitchen is red and my cabinets are high gloss dark stain with awful shiny bathroom-cabinet style pulls. All of it needs replacing. I am quite inspired by Beki and her kitchen reno. It's on the schedule for this summer. Lotsa paint. Thank goodness the floors are ok!)
