I started this last fall, and I probably got bored with sewing summer clothes when winter was coming so I stopped.  But, I found it yesterday and now that we are in the armpit of winter, and when when when is spring coming already, the colours made me feel a bit less blah.  So I finished it.  Had a bugger of a time with the zipper, but that's what I get for abandoning it for 5 months.

Intended to be a gift for a wee friend, who will be 1 yr this year.



The top is from a commerical pattern, New Look something or other.  I'll find the # if anyone wants it.  The bottom is just a patchwork tube, gathered into a skirt. 

Now that I'm looking, I think I need to find some orange ribbon to put around as a sash (which is what I probably intended originally, but 5 months is way too long for my brain to remember some detail like that).

Anyway,  Smiley

Super cute!  I love the rainbow patchwork.  I am hoping to get around to making a dress with a skirt like that before my daughter is too old to be interested in it.  Great job!  (as usual!!)  Grin

Adorable! I wish I had had one when I was little. That is going to be a very lucky little girl.

I love the idea of the orange ribbon sash.

Thanks all!

but, I'm thinking the sizing on commerical patterns is completely wacky.  This is the 12m dress on my 3 yr old:



which is a bit short in the bodice but fits her arms and width just fine.  This is not going to fit a 1 yr old  Undecided

Aren't babies a bit chubbier than toddlers?  (I don't have wee monkeys, so I don't know).  It should fit, and if it doesn't, she'll grow into it, right?
