Isn't the cute level just ridiculous LOL hehe I crack myself up :) Both of the tops shown are made in a woven, but I will highlight on that in a second. I never really make the girls "matching" outfits. I kind of always coordinate them to go together like in this post here. Buuuuuut, I went there with these tops. I have so much of this challis that needed to be used, and the LOL uses enough fabric for me to put a good dent into it. Jennifer requires you to use 1/4" narrow double folded bias tape rather than homemade, and it really does the trick! I made the girls a little opposite by using white and purple bias tape with alternating yokes.
The woven option has a very quaint button closure at the top, which makes dressing a breeze for the older girls. Madison is in love with her LOL. I was asked to test a bigger size due to some snug fitting issues in the chest, and without hesitation I complied. The version shown here is a woven size 4T, and fit Madison perfectly. For the past year she has been in either size 2T or 3T, but I noticed her chest grew to a size 22", so a 4T was required. Oh, and did I tell you the tutorial also comes in knit and has distinct directions for each?! Yeah, this pattern is pretty much amazing!!!
I'm telling you, the back of the LOL is so gorgeous. I can't get enough of it!! I find it very elegant with the gathers under the arms and how it dips in just right at the middle of the yoke. It shows the perfect amount of skin and is super classy.
For Cora I sewed up size 3-6 month, and the fit was spot on yet again. This is also made in the woven rayon challis, and I think the fabric allows for maximum "flowyness". I am a sucker for baby back rolls, and the LOL shows oh so much of it :)
A little photo of Madison using her mermaid powers LOL :)
