My Big girl just turned 7 and for her birthday I wanted to make her something spacial. I was given this very lovely, soft fabric from liberty which I used to make her a tunic. I wanted to keep it as a surprise, this meant I could not measure her without her getting suspicious. So instead I used one of her tops to get the measurements and made it a little bigger, just to be sure. Luckily it fitted and she is very happy with it.
