Conclusion My daughter is a huge Matilda Jane fan and this pattern has that look without that price. I made this dress for my three year old granddaughter. She's on the short side so the pants are regular length vs. capri length. As summer is coming to a close, I decided to leave them that way. She can put a long sleeve shirt under the top and wear the pants without chilling her legs. As she grows she will have capris. In hindsight, I would have used a skinnier ribbon for the shoulders. The size indicated in the pattern overwhelms such a small girl. However, that is an easy fix as they are not a permanent fixture. Now...how to convince my boss that I MUST take vacation time immediately to visit my grandchildren in order to fix a ribbon catastrophe?
