So here's the little top I worked on while I could have (should have?) been weeding yesterday. It took me awhile to decide exactly what I wanted to do, but in the end I went for simple. Sophie likes to dress herself, sometimes numerous times a day, so I wanted something that would be easy for her to take off and on. No zipper, no buttons. I ended up using the Portabello Pixie "Claire" dress pattern that I blogged about awhile back, only I left off the apron and shortened the skirt.
The sun was shining so brightly when I took this picture...but we're not complaining!
I wasn't sure at first if I liked all the "poofy-ness", but Sophie loves it! And the longer she wore it, the more I loved it, too. She put it on first thing this morning and kept it on all day. A few minutes ago I suggested that we take it off so she could change into jammies, but she promptly rejected that idea. I think she thinks she's going to sleep in it.
She wore this to church today, and got so many compliments. I must admit, it did turn out pretty darn cute. I think this top would look so sweet with little capris, too.
Now I'm thinking that I need to make matching tops for the other two skirts I've made her. Oh, if only there were more hours in the day!
