Kimono shirt

My niece was being dedicated last Saturday and I had Friday to myself to craft. After all the work on my Etsy site, I felt like making something different.

I have a pattern book, "Weekend Sewing" by Heather Ross that has a lot of cute things. The patterns are fairly simple, so I decided I'd make the Kimono top.

The top is for a 3 month old and the pants are 18 month. I realize the size difference, but it turned out ok. The shirt pattern fit my almost 6 month old niece perfectly, though she'll probably grow out of it soon. The pants are a little big, with room to grow. Next time I'll try to adjust the pattern to enlarge it slightly.
