I was just going to say the same thing. Most of Harriets dresses this year will be worn with leggings next year :wink:

That's what we're doing as Rebekah's had a sudden growth spurt :-?


If it's a warm day though there's nothing like a pretty WN under a a dress & if it's short you'll just get to show off the nappy :wink:

That's very cute!

If you want to make it a bit longer you can easily add a ruffle to the hembottom ;)

We've got a gorgeous WeeNotions with the same fabric on the border cut!
We've also got some strawberry fields, pink polka, blue polka Itti bittis... I'm hoping I can adjust the pattern and thinking matching dresses and matching nappies!!!
Never adjusted a pattern before. The skirt bit is easy coz it was just a rectangle. How to I go about doing the front & back pieces of the bodice? Do I just trace a larger outline round the pattern?

Lovely dress and your baby looks very, very pleased with her new dress! I second the idea of putting a ruffle/band around the bottom to lengthen it, or leggings if that is just easier :giggle:
