Snappy Toddler Top: FAIL, I think

I printed up this free pattern from Prudent Baby and made it using the scraps from the Sorbetto tank top I made a few months ago.  While it came out pretty cute, I'm pretty sure I must have printed the pattern too small, because it came out tiiiiiiiny.  Maybe it might fit a newborn, but I have serious doubts about its ability to fit its intended wearer, Ms. Zoe.  Sigh.

In any case, it allowed me to try out some new techniques, some of which I handled with some level of success, others not so much.  Hand sewing a buttonhole:  not too bad!  Sewing really small curved areas: pitiful.  Live and learn.

Anybody know a newborn girl looking for a hand made summer top?
