I made a little one of a kind creation yesterday. This is going to fit a little girl from about 2 - 4 years. I love it because it can be worn any season. That's what I strive for with a lot of the little clothes I make, but sometimes it's hard.
Some of you may not know - but I don't usually use patterns. I like to come up with any idea - draw it, try it and then do sizing adjustments. I also use clothes of my daughter's that I like as a starting point for measurements - that helps a lot. This is one of those designs. If someone doesn't buy it quickly - my little girl will be wearing it - because it is really adorable (if I do say so myself)! Adding to the versatility is the fact that I intended it as a shirt - to be worn with leggings or whatever - but holding it up to my 2 year old I see that it could be a cute summer dress with bloomers as well.
Plus, everything I'm making right now is either 100% cotton or organic bamboo because of the CPSIA. I think these materials will end up being exempt. Etsy admins say "Keep Selling!" that things are being worked out. I hope so!
