Houston, Texas, ...
I am starting pieces for a dress-up trunk for my goddaughter, who turns 2 in March. I added 4 inches all around to the pattern pieces. I top-stitched the lining, and along the bottom hem used one of the decorative stitches I don’t get to use very often. I did not follow the instructions for the matching muff, but made mine simpler.
2 yards crushed panne, 2 yards ivory lining. The pattern prints as a size 2T and calls for 1 yard each. I graded it up and needed 2 yards each.
