The Lily Top and Kerchief for Zoey

Cute as a button! Zoey could not be happier on the day which this picture was taken. After all, it was preschool graduation day!!

I wanted to show pictures of this little peasant style dress and retro kerchief.

When I think of these little triangle head scarves I think of old Mustang Convertibles & Sally Field when she played Gidget. I'm telling my age again......sigh.....just keep in mind that I was NOT old enough to be driving a mustang at that time!

This sewing pattern is named The Lily Top and Kerchief and is by Pink Fig. It features shirring at the neckline, sleeves and waist.

Zoey wears a size 5 off the rack, and I sewed this dress from a size 5 on the pattern. It fits nicely, however there is not much growing room.
If your child is a perfect size 5 from the racks of major chain stores, I'd consider making the Lily Top in a size 6. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this pattern.
