This is from the book "Fairy Tale Knits". I didn't choose to make the skirt full length like the pattern...we thought it would get in the way of a 3 year old girl's activities.
I goofed on the collar. It said to pick up stitches starting at the neck edge. I started them at the edges of the buttonhole and button bands. Naturally, when buttoned up to the neck, the collar overlaps and doesn't work. I didn't realize this until all the ends were snipped and woven in and etc.
Dear Lexi will have to wear it without buttoning up the neck button. My guess is she'll not be too offended.
