One of my favorite patterns from Girly Style Wardrobe, B, was made twice for L4 when she was a toddler. Oh, how I loved those shirts, and she did too! In honor of my girlie starting kindergarten, I made her a new pattern B.
Fetching, no? Well, at least what you can see of it. She was so intent on her puzzle-making that I didn’t want to stop her. I’ve been waiting for quite a while for the puzzle to be done so that I can clean the floor in that room again. Back to the shirt–what is great about this pattern is that it works really well for layering in colder weather, but can be worn in warmer weather, too. Plus, if you have a girl who is sensitive about things going over her head, as L4 is, the tie opening leaves plenty of room with no sense of claustrophobia. The big pleat detail is probably my favorite part about it (can be seen better in the photos linked above). In fact, it inspired a sketch quite a while ago for an adult shirt which I am in the process of creating now and hope to share with you all soon.
