Sherry loved the birdy dress, as did I. But when we put it on Caroline, it was way, way too tight in the armholes. I had thought that it seemed skimpy when I was putting it together, but it really didn't work at all beyond this one photo op.
My friend Sherron has a granddaughter who is younger than Caroline and wispier in build, so I'm sending it on to her to see if Maddison can get some use from it.
I'd made some capri pants from the same pattern designer (Portobello Pixie/Sandi Henderson) and they weren't a good fit either. I think that I'm going to make a trip to Joanne's Fabrics and peruse the Simplicity and McCall offerings; they always worked when my kids were little.
I sure was right about these being her colors, though.
