sewn in 92cm and lengthen to 98cm. its cute but its too wide. I hacked 1.5" on each side but I think i will be chopping up to 2" on each side especially the front. I will also omit the pleats on the front to cut down on the "wide-ness".

This is one of my favorite things I've made for DD. Like the pp, I did take a good 2" off the width. It's very wide - but I suspected it from the picture and just took it off each side, not a big deal.

I am posting mine, just because its exactly like the one Northernmama made. Same material but the yoke sections are different. Cracked me up when I saw it!

It's definitely wide but I'm okay with that. I added a little extra length to the frill.

i dont like the width, so i sewed this in 92cm with 110cm length, worked like a charm.
