Bolero for baby
Yesterday the babe and I whipped up a little peasant-blouse/bolero for her to wear over this sundress when we have family photos taken (well, she practiced standing up in her playpen while I sewed, but her input is invaluable).
I was particularly pleased with how the simple zig zag stitch around the edge was fancied up by using decorative rayon thread- in a variegated lilac. The sheen of the thread against the cotton is subtle but very nice. An easy way to add some detail to a simple top.
