|Oliver+S Playtime tunic|
It was so soft I had to use it.
Originally, I had planned to keep it quite short, like a peplum top but the 50's vibe that was coming off it made me think of a lace hemmed shorty dress.
The thick, blue, cotton lace was a gift from the lovely Ana Sofia. In fact, I flatter myself the dress has a European feel.
Beatrix's signature flower shaped MoP buttons sewn with blue embroidery floss.
Now, to try and get some photos of it modelled.
Trixie is not walking but climbs e v e r y t h i n g.
The shorter skirt makes that a bit safer.
Beatrix's measurements put her in the 12-18 month size but this was almost a bit snug. She is a very placid child but grumbled at getting her arms pushed into the sleeves.
I would make the next size up for her in future.
I do like the sleeve and bodice shape of this pattern.
It has a 'Japanese pattern look' to it.
I do like her, just a bit.
