My goal was to create my 15-month-old daughter's first fall outfit. I chose colors and styles to suit her personality, keep her cool and warm (layers) during the transitional season of autumn, allow her to play comfortably, and still rock a little baby-style! My secondary motives included a sewing challenge for me and just plain fun with my sewing machine.
I'm happy that each item is easily machine washable, easy to get on and off the toddler, and has room for her grow over the next few months. (I'll be thrilled if this trench still fits next spring.)
And because I couldn't just jump off the cutesy tootsie wagon, I made a matching hairbow!
