Ottobre Ultimate Casual Sweatpants 4/2013 #27

  My daughter is currently growing like a weed, so I whipped up these Ottobre sweatpants for her (4/2013 #27). I thought they would be an immediate hit. I mean, flowers, girls, yes? Sigh.

I made this dress for my daughter to wear over Christmas – it’s taken a while to get a photo of it! Little miss doesn’t like to wear any warm clothing however, so it has been impossible to get a photo of her actually in this dress!
