Im a long time lurker, first time poster. I owe alot to this community for inspiration, and this project is no exception. I borrowed a few ideas from here when coming up with this pattern.
These are Christmas gifts for my nieces, ages 5 and 2.
The older one is a little girlier, so I used pink and purple trim. She loved the sparkly buttons.
The younger one is a little more tomboyish, so I trimmed it accordingly. It might be a little too boyish, but cute enough that I dont think it matters.
The adjustable neck worked better, too bad I didnt think of it sooner. I prefer the pocket on the little one, too, but Im not sure it would have worked as well on the larger size.
