So after yesterdays failed attempt at a new pattern - the pattern failed not me ;-p ...top was way too short and the straps/armholes were to tight. So today I brain stormed with my mum and we came up with two ways to make it fit my little miss better.
First i had to do lots of unpicking, the straps from the main body and the bottom band.
Added a bigger contrast band and bottom band to give it the length needed.
Second problem was the straps/armholes were a bit tight so added a small contrasting band under the straps as well.
Just waiting on my buttons to arrive so I can have a matching fabric covered one.
Woohoo I'm much happier with this version hopefully i can get little miss to wear it.
