This is one pattern that I have had my eye on for ages but couldn't justify buying because elder daughter would only have been in the largest size (5T) for a few months.
Both the skirt and top are just beautiful with lovely sweeping curves and gathers, and with the wave of hot weather currently hitting the UK, I gave in and bought the digital version for L.
I thought she would be okay in a 3T but upon re-measuring her, she falls into the larger 4T, which is a pity as it shortens the life of the pattern considerably.
The fabric is a special meter that I have been saving. It is from the Cat Nap collection by Lizzy House. I love it and have been looking for the right project. I also have this print from the same collection, I have seen that made up into a Swing Set Top and it looks pretty spectacular!
There is plenty of room in the size 4T. It fits her with enough ease to let the breeze float through on a warm day. The bodice fits over her head without needing to undo the buttons for the time being but it is nice to know they are there for when she grows.
The best detail for me about this top is the curve of the bodice, isn't it sweet?
I found three buttons shaped like leaves in just the right colours which suit this fun print.
At first I thought the straps would be a little on the short side. But if you happen to think that too while making it up, rest assured, they are just right.
