I would have made this quite quickly if it hadn't been for the pattern on the bodice, as usual I had to really concentrate and still I made lots of mistakes, so after much pulling out and re knitting I finally finished it. It took me a week because I kept putting off sewing it up. I do like it, it was taken from the woman's weekly knitting magazine. That magazine was such good value I have made so much out of it. This little top should fit a child 12 months. Small things are sooo cute.
