Liberty Ruffle Top

I've finally used some of the beautiful Liberty fabric I bought from Preston market a couple of months ago. I had to find exactly the right project for it, as I only had half a metre.

Obviously it had to be something for Munchkin! I was a bit scared when I first cut into it, but everything turned out wonderfully :)

I used this fantastic tutorial from Sparkle Power, which was very easy to follow. I used the measurements at the bottom for age 2-3, with a couple of adjustments. It's still a weeny bit too big for Munchkin, but that just means it'll last until next summer.

I need to find a nice plain long sleeved top to go under it for winter - the one she's wearing in the pictures has a flower on the front and is too thin. If I find a cream one I might do a bit of customising, as I've got a sizeable peice of the Liberty fabric left over - maybe some bands of fabric around the cuffs?
