I nearly forgot that I finished this a couple weeks ago. It’s another Pierrot top for Clementine, but this one is 18-24 months. Yes, friends, that means I have digitized/begun grading the pattern…please don’t get too hopeful as I feel like my work rate is currently roughly analogous to the flow of molasses outside. And yes, if you needed any other reminders than the fact that it’s been 15 degrees outside for the last week, it IS January…. I think I’ll make the sleeve more a 3/4 length next time rather than the 1/2 length it currently is, but other than that I think it’s scaled up quite nicely.
The neckline always looks a little crazy after it’s first sewn, but after washing that ruffle will definitely calm down and still be just as cute without looking clownlike. I am so enamored with this little tunic.

And I know I’ve blathered on about how much I love the Anna Maria Horner voiles before so I’ll spare you the love-fest and just say that this one is also just as divine as the others (it’s from the Little Folks collection if you’re having trouble finding it). I am not sure why I never noticed this print before but now I am totally in love. The photos don’t really do the colors justice. Plus it’s perfect for cutting on the bias to get a nice diagonal plaid.
