Awww, Meggie she looks so cute! Looks more like you every time I see a pic of her! Are you enjoying your new sewing machine? Lucky you! Tell me, how do you finish off the tie straps? I've made one of these and wasn't "real" pleased with the way they tell you to do it. You can pm me if you like. I'd like to make a few more of these for Ava; and, like you, I just love the shirring part. ~Connie

What a darling little girl! And how blessed she is to have a loving big sister to sew cute clothes for her. I love Ottobre childrens designs. Makes me wish I had little ones to sew for again.

I can't believe how much Claire has grown since you started making these little tops for her. I'm not sure I APPROVE of her growing up! She just keeps getting CUTER by the minute, JUST LIKE THESE TOPS! I love the bright colors on her latest beach print top. My FAVORITE parts are the shirring and those little ties at the shoulders. :o))

I don't think I've ever seen a cuter child than Claire! And does she look adorable in her tops. The black and white (with all of those reddish curls) is a picture to behold! You just do the nicest work for her, and she is one lucky little girl.

WOW, that was FAST, even for YOU! I love this last little top and, OF COURSE, the GINORMOUS BOW in her hair just MAKES it. :o))
