One of Oliver+S's earlier patterns that came in the tiny sizes, the Swing Set tunic & skirt pattern.
I made Trixie the tiniest size, 0-3 months, it still fits her at 5 months but is pretty snug.
Soft, cool hailspot muslin seemed the obvious choice for our hot weather. I sewed the straps from the tiny pieces left from the pretty fabric from Sarvi and Colette and added two tiny gingham bows.
Tiny MoP buttons (from my sweet friend Claire) with equally tiny butterflies close the back.
The yoke was a little fiddly in this tiny sew but fun, in a dolls clothes sewing kind of way.
More hailspot for the skirt, lined with pale coral lawn that is trimmed with fringe
Black and white grosgrain ribbon makes the perfect waist tie.
And it is all a perfect match to Aunty Sarvi's cardy.
The inspiration for Beatrix's wardrobe.
One of the many fun things about having children over an 18 year gap is the new accessories that come out.
Bandana bibs are useful and very cute.
As well as being a quick sew and a great way to use up those old thin cloth nappies.
How adorable is this?
Blissfully cool for our hot sticky days.

Love this pattern!
