Simplicity 8101

I couldn't resist Simplicity 8101 when I saw it. I knew that Olive needed a couple and when I asked my niece, who was visiting, if she wanted one she she said "Yes please! In pink!".
I used quilting cotton for all of it, including the bias binding. 
I had a quick look at the instructions and then kind of followed them and kind of did things my own way. I cut a size 3 which fit both girls (they are 3 1/2) but I probably should have cut a size 4 so it fits for longer. The arms seemed a little tight so I made them a bit bigger (all I had to do was sew the side seam a bit shorter).
This has gone home with my happy niece and Olive is just choosing some fabric for hers.

Such a great style- will look great with leggings and long sleeve tops underneath for winter, too! The adult version is so comfy, I can only imagine how this will feel!

So cute! We'd love to pin it to our Dottie Angel board on Pinterest. Thanks for writing about it and for the photos. :)

Darling and I love the pocket detail. I have an adult Dottie Angel pattern and I do hope to make it, one day!
