What are you most proud of? Holy cow, that kid is cute! I'm quite pleased with how well the snap crotch turned out. I sort of just played it by ear in assembly, so I'm really glad it all came together.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! The pattern is a good one, and the result is seriously adorable. Although I don't think this would be a great first project, it would be fine for someone who is a relative beginner. It is also a great way to learn to do a continuous lap, as the lap is in a seam, which is much easier than the slash and staystitch version. Simplicity's directions for it are quite good.

Adorable. I have made this pattern several times, and each time is cuter than the next. I made one of dark blue linen with a white handkerchief linen collar. I love sewing for children! Love the trim on the seersucker and of course the 'model' couldn't be cuter!!
