I saw these cuties (with free pattern! ) and I just couldn’t resist. But make no mistake: they ARE mini. Overall, it’s a pretty simple pattern: two pieces each for front and back, gathered at the top with two strands of elastic and at the bottom with a tie of ribbon. I used my new pattern paper to trace the printed pattern pieces out and preserve them for future use. The process really isn’t that hard but I rated this pattern’s difficulty “intermediate” because Colette pattern instructions aren’t always super clear, and the type of fabric called for makes it hard to keep ends from raveling or maintain sewing machine tension, especially for the button holes. My contrast stitching might not have been the best idea, either.
