    Thank you again. I didn’t realize anyone would be very interested in my vintage sewing. :)

    The occasion was my daughter’s 8th birthday.

    It did not take long, but longer then it should have. I was busy with other sewing projects at the same time.

    There is an adult version of this pattern, but it’s hard to find. I would like one, too. :)

    Thank you for the lovely compliments. It was a pretty straight forward design. The biggest adjustment with these vintage children’s patterns, is the length. I always add anywhere from 2-4".

    It is fantastic! The design, colors, silhouette, great job! how good was the basis? You had to adjust a lot?
