Tri Cities, Wash...
I used a vintage McCall’s 4742 pattern (size 8) for my very petite 6 year-old (who is about a size 4). I altered the pattern quite a bit. I added the bib front, which ended up way larger than I anticipated. And I also added the piping and ruffle which was not part of the original patern.
I suppose I could have gone out and bought a new pattern which actually fits her, but I’m too cheap. Plus it’s kind of cool to use the same pattern my own mother used 35 years ago.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
