I love this pattern!  I can bang out one of these shirt/dress in a couple of hours- in between dealing with kids, the dog, the housework etc!!!  I made this into a size two and just tightened up the collar around her neck, this way I can just adjust to make it looser as she grows.  Dress now, shirt later... gotta love it! 
I cloth diaper her so I have been scouring the local thrift stores for wool to make wool diaper covers for the summer- much cooler than plastic diaper covers.  The capris she is wearing are made from the arms of a men's 100% Italian Merino Wool sweater, its soooo soft!  I just cut the arms off sewed them together up the crotch turned and stitched and added elastic to the waist.  The legs I did a tight zig zag stitch to get the ruffled look. VOILA cute summer outfit.

I'm quite sure you're already aware of this, but you're little one is just too beautiful!! Her face is so honest and full of expression!

Love the outfit, too, AND the fact that it grows with her!!! BRILLIANT!
