Dreaming of summer

It's cold and rainy here so I'm sewing some summer stuff, dreaming. This is McCall 5304 for Eden. For a big 3 pattern, it doesn't run too badly, a little baggy but then again she is a little skinny for her height. I did lengthen the top for her as it ran a tad short. I used up some embroidered pink check seersucker I bought when Lily was a baby. Lily got a matchy dress, of which I do not have even a passable photo. I will be glad when it is warmer and not raining so I can get photos outside!

Kwik Sew 2911

I made two of these, one in a T1 shown here and one in a size T4 for Lily. This Kwik Sew pattern is so awesome I was able to complete both the same day, including tracing the pattern. Eden actually wears more 18mos or 2T, but this pattern really runs a bit big in the smallest size (T1). The T4 fit Lily pretty well, and she wears a 4. Fleece was just a remnant from Joanns, super cheap but decent quality, thick. I'm a happy mama to have these done as it is really chilly here this week, unseasonally so.
