Buttons: cheap color pack from Walmart (I hope they don't melt in the sun)
Child's Age: 7
Monkey Pants is now almost eight but apparently she is only the size of a Finnish toddler. Her measurements are very frustrating to say the least. You'll see why when I get around to posting about the Audrey Pants #17 from Ottobre 3/2009. I cut the pattern for the 110cm size (no idea what the US equivalent is). I shortened it for the tunic effect instead of a dress and omitted the front pockets. Unfortunately, the pattern doesn't tell you how long to make the tunic. Why? I'm not that smart. I need them to tell me this. Why couldn't they have a hemline for the tunic version? So it turned out more of a blouse length than tunic but still, I was quite happy with it non the less. It fit. The fabrics worked well for the pattern. And most importantly, Monkey Pants wore it despite the old fashioned buttoned back. Three days in a row. Yay!
By the way, I'm selling Ottobre 1/2009 on Etsy if anyone is interested. --Sold!
