It's a dress. It's a top. It's super cute.
This is actually a size 12 month dress but I think it looks super cute as a top on Matea who wears a size 18-24 months. I just got this fabric in the mail from Jona's shop this morning and it ended up being a little brighter than I expected. I'm thinking too bright for a bag (for most people's taste anyway) but perfect for a fun and funky toddler dress.....errrr, top....both. I'm thinking of listing these at $22 for the event this weekend and listing them as 9-12 months dress/12-24 months top. Is that stupid?
Here's something stupid. As I've said before, I have no concept of patterns. So, I was checking out Tonya's blog this week and saw this gorgeous top she made in a size 14. I commented and said she definitely looks more like a size 6. Turns out she is a six. Um, I guess patterns run funky in sizing for whatever stupid reason and a size 6 is really a 14. I'm a size 10 so doing the math, I would need a size 156 in a pattern. Not gonna happen. Did I mention Tonya has seven kids and looks like that? Yeah, now I really feel stupid.
