In the end, it turned out just fine. This is the third time I've made this particular top for Fidget and it is, by far, her favorite. I suppose all you have to do is choose the right fabric. Horses, evidently, rank pretty high.
This photo was taken after 3 consecutive wearings, a purple marker gone wild, and a tossing on the floor. But I know you'll excuse its crumpled, pathetic appearance because you're nice. (And what about that chunky little bald babe in that photo? *sigh*)
Here's the wee one herself, after I asked her to pose for a picture. I couldn't help but share. She thought she was pretty dandy.
She liked the little last-minute hairband, too.
Modifications on B5119, size 3:
- lengthed the "top" A view from the hemline 1 inch
- shortened the sleeve length about 1 inch
- made an elastic casing closure on the sleeve, rather than the ruffle.
This is a great first-timer kind of project. You don't even need much fabric. Have fun. And let me know if you try it, too. :)
