This little outfit is my entry for the Holiday Sewing contest.
It is a set made up of this top and the Surprise flounce skirt .

Pattern Description:
Sleeveless knit top with bow details and curved hemline.

Pattern Sizing:
Height 98-146 I made the smallest size. My toddler is only 92cm tall.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the hemline and the bow detail.

Fabric Used:
A red knit which I took from my mother's stash a few years ago. I think it's been there since the 70's. It's probably polyester.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again, but next time I'll make the top a little longer. It comes down to just above my toddler's belly button, and she's under the height for this size.

Conclusion:
I'm really happy with the way this turned out. I was inspired to make it for the holiday sewing contest.
There are more photos on my blog.
