Wendy said...

That is absolutely adorable, and so is your model. :-)

Marielle said...

Very cool. I made something similar for my kids when they were little(!). It also makes a nice shower gift, sewn small and made in yellow or soft green. I used a Folkwear pattern that was a bit more complicated and fussy. Yours is VERY cute, as is the chickadee wearing it!

Roxanne said...

Ooh, super cute! I love your week of small projects - I really need to do this too. First I need to put my craft room back together though!! :)

Valerie said...

How in this world do you do all that you do? I think I have asked you that before. You really amaze me. She is beautiful and the top is too.

platty said...

I love the "catwalk"-like pose. Very cute little top

AMD said...

Now if you make one of these in a shiny brocade, the two of us would match. But this is more practical for everyday wear.

Have you thought of making one in your size?

Jane said...

She is a cutie!
Darling top.
I want one for me!

Lala said...

Very cute! I remember when I used to sew for my kids when they were little! No chance of that now they are teens!

Sarah said...

It's the cuteness inside the top that really makes it special!

Aimee said...

That is so cute!! Your daughter is adorable!

Sara said...

That's it, I MUST finally make one of these.
So sweet.

lera said...

LOVE the dotted kimono. I need to kick my butt in gear and make mine now.

Herding Grasshoppers said...

SHE is adorable. Absolutely the essence of cuteness.

And she would even look good in a hospital gown... which, as cute as the kimono is, is what I thought of first.

I never thought I would see these again! So popular when I was a baby and then gone!

Great tutoial.

Philigry said...
