Miss N's Happy Happy Olivine Reveal

This, my friends, is what a happy camper looks like.

Miss N was so delighted to model this dress and would not take it off when we got home.  She played in the leaves wearing it, even took a nap in it. Consider this one kid-tested and kid-approved. I already have my eye out for a more 'everyday' fabric combo to sew another that she can wear to school.

In anticipation of a chillier fall day, we borrowed this beautiful faux fur cape from our friend Nan, who is developing a pattern for this.  I hope we can share that with you before the holidays!

As many of you'll recall, Miss N is my teeny tiny one. Despite her age (4), I sewed her dress in a 2T--proof positive that our sizing is only a loose approximation of age! Her measurements are definitely in line with our sizing chart's 2T. Her waist is about 20" and height is 3'1" (37").

We hope you will all be inspired to pull out your Olivine Dress pattern soon and start sewing one for the holidays...or maybe just naptime.

Happy sewing everyone!
