I made this dress almost a year ago, so the pudgy 3 year old is now 4 and lanky in comparison. The dress was all cut out but I didn't get to it until the end of the summer, so unfortunately it didn't get many wears.
I like the simple dress with the bow as the main feature. It's difficult to see in the photo, but the dress also has a center front panel. It's supposed to be lined, but I faced the neck and arm edges instead.
I cut out a new bloomers pattern for this one and was surprised to see how billowy they are! I suppose they'd be cute on a younger toddler, but they're a bit much on a 3 1/2 year old. They're also supposed to be lined and ruffled. Again, simplicity reigned.
Huh, there's a button there!
And lastly, the hat. Luckily this one still fits and will get many more wears over the summer.
