I made this after feeling the urge to make something for a girl. I chose a friend who has a daughter who's around 7 (I think). She's a size 104 chest, but adult sizing in the tummy area so it was a bit of a challenge. She hasn't tried it on yet so I'm still praying it fits correctly.
She put in an order for "sparkly butterflies". I couldn't manage much sparkle, though the applique butterfly has some gold on it.
All the fabric used was already in my stash, I used a poly-cotton for the main fabric and the applique and strip are from my quilting fabric stash.
I also recently made a Burda pattern up for another friends daughter, a sleeping bag which used some of the same fabric! It has a lining of organic cotton jersey and a hidden layer of bonded merino wool to keep her snuggly. She loves it, she's 1 year old and apparently when she's tired she goes to it and lies down in it. So sweet!
