WOW ... after I said I was going to make Miss G (aged 3) some clothes, LMS wanted in on the action. We went through all the books I had, and settled on this pattern as one that she could do! It's from Enid Gilchrist Three to Six, Clothes for Boys & Girls (4/-).
Had to alter the construction of the bodice to fully faced, rather than muck around with binding and front facings. Much easier (for both of us).
She did a magnificent job ... I am so very impressed. I have to admit that I did all the handsewing ... she didn't want to, and hey, why should she!
At this stage, I pin, she sews & overlocks, and I iron. It's a fabulous partnership!
We (royal we) just need to get the buttons & button holes done and it can be sent up to Perth!
