Just add a little flower

There is something quite sweet about little clothes in classic blue and white stripes.
It's kind of summery and positive and so I couldn't resist this little number for 'C' when I went for the weekly shopping last week.

as soon as I saw it I had ideas of how I could make it look much better

with a little french knitting ........

and a few carefully chosen buttons
one from each jar red, white & blue
(by' C' of course she insisted she had to pick)

as she is quite tiny for her age the 2~3 yrs was still way too long
so I added a pin tuck around the bottom.

pretty as a picture!

think I might send a picture to GEORGE

Wow! What a clever way to jazz up a little dress. It has inspired me to be creative with my plain tops to make them more interesting. I love it!

Hi Louise, thanks, it was you that made me want to have a go with the french knitting again and as you know it doesnt take long!
