The “Natalie & Nate” already has me thinking about fabric combinations. I’m all about one-pieces for the little tots!

Definitely Kyoko! My oldest lives in tunic dresses and leggings, and making an obi wardrobe would be so fun.

Patty’s Abigail dress pattern has inspired me to make my little girl a knit A-line dress using a combination of 3 of Patty’s cotton knit fabrics. This will make a comfy summer dress!

My daughter has been asking for clothes for her dolls so I’d love to try my hand at the Mini Frida pattern.

I love the way Patty combines different prints in one dress. It inspires me to try the same thing with the next outfit I make for my little girl.

The “Paige” jacket would be ideal for my little girl given all the showers/snow/hail we’ve had so far this May up in Northern British Columbia!
