Description

I wanted to take a vintage kid’s pattern and remake it for the modern little girl! I found this delightful pattern in an antique shop and fell immediately in love with it! I modified the collar by extending it to add the bow.

Material Notes

pin-stripe shirting, cotton polka dotted shirting

    super cute, it could almost be scaled up for a women’s top because the colors are not too childish

    I love the contrasting material – I would wear this as a top or dress myself!

    That is fantastic. I think – resized to women’s sizes – it could also be adapted to make a great top.

    That’s adorable! LOVE the polka dot neck contrast to the solid top.
