Lovely Libby

My camera came back last night and I just couldn't wait to take some quick snaps of this blouse I made for Bea this week. I joined in the Libby shirt sew along over at Craftiness is not optional and I am LOVING this new top. (And judging by the weird fake smile she is doing here Bea is happy with it too).

I chose a pretty cotton print I have used before here and cream cotton for the bib. The lovely buttons are a kind of pearly gold colour that I think works really well.

I based the sizing on an age 3 top but it came out slightly smaller than I would have liked - It fits her perfectly but I like things a little bit big so they last longer. (The child just will not stop growing!) Oh well, I may just have to make another one when she grows out of it!
