Little Lizard King Pinafore

I bought this pattern specifically for little Maddie.
This is the first Little Lizard King pattern I've bought.
I wasn't too happy with it, to be honest. There were a few things I didn't like about it, but mostly how to finish the neckline and arms. It said to just make a narrow hem, but I thought the bias binding or a lining would be much better around those curves.

I chose to do a bias binding, since I had already made it for this dress.
So, I just cut off the hem allowance and binded the edges.

I love how it turned out, though.
My favorite part is the little applique on the bottom.

And who can resist ruffles and a big bow?

Lucy is getting a little big to be modeling my baby clothes.... this one is pretty funny on her.

But it looks great on Miss Maddie.
