OMG I love it! It's not hideous at all! And I can't believe how well it fits her - I used last year's pattern that I drafted from one of her old T-shirts, although I did "grade" it up a bit for this project. Very, very pleased with this one. And yes, she adores it and has worn it for the last two days straight!

My Miss Five desperately wanted a pink dress. She insisted on this hideous hot-pink cotton jersey at the fabric shop, which I tolerated as long as I was allowed to tone it down with the striped blue trim. I whipped this up in about an hour the other night. I think it looks awful but I know she'll love it.
Still tweaking the pattern. This one I made without a waistband, just fold-over elastic which I didn't stretch quite enough as I was sewing it, so they're a little loose around my middle (the lycra really is the best way to do the waistband). This pair is upcycled from a hideous top I bought at the summer hill anglicare depot last year. Also don't look too closely at the stitching on the right leg where my bobbin decided to chuck a spaz!
