Question one: I used the XS size in the pattern, which they list as being for newborns, but I've heard that Simplicity's baby patterns tend to be very over-sized. The mama is quite petite, so I'm expecting that the baby will be on the smaller side. Do you think this will be too big?
Question two: The fabric is a polar fleece... should I finish the seams in any particular way? Here's a picture:
Question three: I did my first ever applique on the front... because the colour of the fabric is blue/teal, I wanted to "girl it up". But I'm not used to adding embellishments, and I don't think the applique is enough. Does anyone have suggestions on a good way to make this prettier? I have some ruffled lace (white and teal), and some ric-rac, but I'm drawing a blank on where to attach it, and if I should attach either at all. I could also do more applique... some hearts or something... ideas?
