Sewing for a little lady

I love sewing for my niece Nicole. She is a fiery little red head with the sweetest dimples you have ever seen. She lives in Kansas so I usually have to sew and hope it fits.

Today my whole family is in town for a wedding. So I am lucky to get to see her in clothes I have especially made. I choose a sweet little chintz dress in delicate pink, with silk-cotton bloomers. It is a little big, maybe even a lot big, but Nicole loves it and did a little dance in my garden to show me just how much. The dress is from an Ottobre pattern Marilen, and I adapted a pants pattern in the same magazine called Candy into these bloomers.

I am happy to share my favorite pattern to make for little girls. The rolypoly pinafore by imagine gnats patterns. It is a very quick make and a simple way to add a layer. I like it for an art smock or apron as well. In warmer climates you could pair it with shorts and no under shirt too. I just love it!
