Since first we met.
I knew from experience the 0-3 month size was a very roomy fit so I was patiently waiting for her to 'chub up'.
Then a lovely local lady gifted me a bag of fabric and there were some pieces of the loveliest linen I had ever seen.
Perfect Tea Party material.
As usual I lined the skirt.
This lets me really clip and press those seams.
I used flat black piping to lift the twee levels a little closer to sophisticated.
The linen tape threaded with cherry red also helps with this.
The MoP flowers buttons are stitched with the same cherry coloured silk thread.
For a POP of colour, Liberty Wiltshire lawn bloomers.
Beatrix's signature print.
In a 6-12 month sizing to accommodate her cloth nappy.
From the leftovers, a wee bandana bib.
And, last night, a late entrant, the Purl Soho Summer Baby bonnet.
Irish linen and Liberty lawn.
Deliciously cool for a hot and sticky trip to the city.
Sweet chubby baby goodness.
Only topped by a baby nose.
