Adorable!!! For all the wonderful little girls clothes you make I am going to have to write down all the synonyms for that word I can find so I can adequately describe how cute the clothes you make for that little girl are! I am sure you inspire lots of other moms and gms to sew for their little ones.

Gracie will be in close competition with the most beautiful daffodils when she wears this! And you've found the perfect way to use the variegagted pastel wooly nylon--beautiful rolled hem on skirt ruffle. And the sleeves, too, which looks like a buttery yellow thread.
