It is not very often that I say I will make something up and then get on with it the next day. Normally I have other things on the go or I don't have the right fabric. Happily though with this blouse I had no such excuses.
This lime green polkadot fabric has been in my stash for a while now. I only ever wanted to make a Picnic Blouse with it so am super excited that I actually got around to making it up.
My girl is hitting the size 6 perfectly at the moment so everything I make fits really nicely. I added length to this top, but that doesn't count because I have to add length to everything I make for her. This has an extra 2" added on to the main panels.
This makes the top hit just across her bottom which gives it a bit more longevity.
I really like the elastic yokes on this blouse. I love all the O+S tops that I have tried, but this one has no fastenings to slow her down (or to frustrate my husband) so this will be a winner. Straight on over her head, and off to play.
I am already eyeing up my other fabrics to see what could work for a second one. I have promised myself to get a pattern busted out of my pile but these children's patterns are just calling to me to be made up!
