The pattern is the Snow Flakes dress (Ottobre 6/2010, #7), size 86. (Incidentally, did anyone notice that the pattern only goes up to size 86, but in the magazine it lists size 92 as well?) In the magazine it is pictured on an infant, so I was curious to see how it would look on a bigger girl. I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, it's darling and I love how it fits Miss M, but on the other hand, adding 4 inches total length did unbalance the design a bit. In future, I might add the length by adding a ruffle or eyelet to the hem rather than lengthening the panels.
Little Guy wanted to see what his sister was up to during our mini photo shoot. He absolutely adores her! And well, we rather adore him too!
Don't you think a frilly white pinafore would look delightfully old-fashioned over this dress?
