I've made this top for my little girl who will be 8 next week and now I'm not sure - have I made Sally look obese?  I got frustrated cutting out the stencil and painted those bits freehand instead and now I think I'm going to have start again which is a pain as I'm not sure I have enough of the stripy material left. What do you think?

I don't think so at all!
It looks amazing and I don't see any disproportion between her and Jack.
[Remember that Jack is a twig]

That's a lucky 8 year old. I'd love to wear that shirt!

The image is able to be identified immediately, so I think you did a great job!  I etched that NBC image onto a glass vase once for my sister-What a pain with an exacto knife!

It's so fiddly isn't it?cutting round Jacks' legs nearly drove me up the wall. Thanks for the feedback everyone - I shall go and iron it and wrap it up.

Hunny, if that is obese, I hate to think what I class as!  Grin

Seriously though, this top is gorgeous.  I am so jealous of your girly!

I finally have a wist!
