The Rose Top

citronille rose top

This little bug is turning four months next week. No surprise really, but I still can’t come to terms how fast she is growing, both in size and developmentally. Just this week she started rolling from side to side and two days later I caught her trying to scoot along. The next day she traveled a good foot or so before my very eyes. Slow down little lady, mama is not ready yet for another mobile babe.

Way back when I was pregnant and had just found out she was a she, I started this sweet little top (Citronille, Rose), along with another in the size down from this. I finished both tops a week or so after starting, but lazily put off adding the buttons and buttonholes until last weekend. I squeezed her into the smaller size and may try to once more for a picture, but the smaller one won’t be getting much wear (not that any baby clothes really does).

This little top though, I am so happy with how it turned out. I will dress her in it as much as possible for the next month or two, until her arms shoot out the sleeves and the buttons in back no longer button. It is somewhat of a silly thing to sew for such fast growing babies, but I am glad I did a little.

    She is so adorable. And how lucky she is to have a talented mama who can sew lovely this for her. I though of you last weekend. My mum had pickled some julienned carrots and daikon for her spring rolls. Made me think of those terrific cucumbers you gave me in the swap.

    I was trying to decide which Citronille pattern to get and seeing your cute little lady in this Rose top just helped me make up my mind. It’s already ordered and I cannot wait to make one now.

    I mean, she really is the cutest. That last picture is killing me.
