A small person I know recently had a birthday. Her sweet little self is just as effervescent as the pattern on this shirt. I still love the Katie Jump Rope fabric so much, and I was delighted to see it come available again. This pattern = Simplicity 3743, but I made so many little adjustments it almost isn't. I've made it a few times before, but the shirt pattern is too short and too wide, and it is the same deal with the pants.
Sizewise I was shooting for Slightly-Too-Big-But-Not-So-Huge-She-Can't-Wear-It-Now-However-Still-Big-Enough-To-Also-Wear-Next-Year-If-Possible. Which is tricky when the small person in question lives two states away. I'm told the package has now arrived, and I hope I got close.
(If I didn't, go on and pretend I did.)
