Violet’s favorite parts: Pockets

Another Labor Day weekend project. It took some convincing, but once Violet understood the full potential of pockets, she came around. Next time I sew this lovely pattern, I will not have wobbly topstitching dead center on the front. Despite it’s imperfection, I do love this top.

    I’m so glad you both like it, because Violet has *refused* to wear it since. I’m the needy mom, offering it as a choice again and again, but she keeps saying no. 🙁
