A Sweet Pattern

I have often said that I want to be my friend Missy when I grow up. She can sew, embroider, smock, cook and entertain beautifully. And thankfully for me, she can also teach. So I feel one step closer to becoming Missy after taking a class she taught at my local sewing shop. We made this sweet Childrens Corner pattern, Paulie, and it has been one of my favorite outfits for Mary Ashley this summer. This versatile button-on-the-shoulder romper can be made short or long, and the pattern offers options for boys or girls. I made Mary Ashley's outfit in the capri length, with a wider ruffle on the pants than the pattern suggested. I am so pleased with the way it turned out, and Mary Ashley has loved wearing it. I hope we have made Missy proud!

Raspberry micro-check fabric is cute for summer, accented with lime green buttons and rick rack. Soft pink, yellow and green polka dots add softness to the ruffles, sash and bodice lining.

A lollipop applique with a lime green bow adds a sweet touch.

Now it's time to bring out this pattern for fall!
