I have been working the last week to get this ready for Lola. This pattern is from the OTTOBRE design book from Summer 2012. If you are not familiar with this magazine it is from Finland and it comes with all the patterns. There are 4 children's volumes a year and if you wish to subscribe, 2 women's. I subscribed to the magazine for about 3 years but did not seem to get around to using the patterns. So, I have discontinued. I love to look through the books often and have now begun to use it more.
I made a domestic sample of the body before cutting this out. The patterns are all in metric and British sizing. It takes some getting used to.
I am very please, and I think that Lola will love it when I deliver tomorrow.

Now that I have completed this.....taxes have to be completed this weekend so that I can get on with the top challenge from Fay's Sewing adventure.
