Susannah's first birthday present, just in the larger size. It's a little too big, but that's good. She picked out the colors, and I spiced up the pattern by adding the stripe around the waist and sleeves. The pink stripe is also a different stitch than the purple field. I just had to jazz it up a little. I also went for some huge buttons and then made loops on the opposite edge for a closure.
The skirt is that same old pattern, just jazzed up a little. I was tired when I was cutting the fabric (pink ballerinas, chosen by you-know-who), and I cut it way too short. I was rescued by some funky purple hemming(?) lace that was in my stash... thanks Mom or Grandma!
Lastly is the headband with crocheted flowers. Very much like the one in this earlier post, but made with variegated pink and purple silk. Ava had seen me making those other flowers and asked for a headband of her own.
