Isn't it adorable? And perfect for fall? And just the right amount of cute and girly?
Even the back is cute.
Doesn't the big red button just make you happy?
I even saved the world an eensy weensy bit and used an old broken hair tie for the elastic that goes around the button. And it matches the shirt perfectly.
So what could possibly be the downside to this sweet little shirt?
I made it too small.
I am confident that it had nothing to do with Jess' amazing sew-along tutorial and everything to do with my terrible pattern drafting skills. (Especially since at least a handful of other people had very successful and cute results.) Here's further proof of my inability to draft patterns in case you don't believe me.
I mean, really, Olivia is so small. She's almost 14 months old and she still fits quite comfortably in 6-9 month clothing. And I *thought* I made this shirt a size 12 month. So how is the bottom of the shirt won't even fit over her
I am so sad. I am so in love with this little shirt.
I still can't decide whether to save it for a potential sister she may have someday or to give it to somebody I really like. I guess I'll think about it for a while.
