This is for my niece, who is two and a half years old. Somehow, somewhere along the way, this dress became big enough to fit a petite (adult) Asian friend of mine, so I think it won't fit my niece for a while to come! But of course it's better that clothes for children are too big rather than too small. So that's the first reason why I haven't sent it yet, and the second reason is that it's Winter in Australia right now and she won't be able to wear it anyway, even if she has grown like crazy.
I still have a few balls of this cool summery yellow left, so I think I'll make a sunhat or perhaps even a little cardigan for her.
