Thank you! @ CA Eisenhour, I agree with you entirely. Because the pieces are so tiny, I find myself thinking it will be quick. Perhaps if I stuck to the pattern it might only be a few short hours, but by the time you've added pintucks, top-stitching, piping, self-covered buttons, or what-ever cute details you desire, its taken three times that if not more!

Absolutely beautiful Molly! Too bad more folks don't read the chidren's clothing reviews!! I believe, from my own experience, that children's clothes are just as complicated and time consuming as adult clothing!! Great job! Love the Pin Tucks!
