The back piece was so big I put a pleat in the back. However, a pleat along with a tie dont really sit right.
The hole the tie passes through is too high so the layer underneath is all puckered.
Im not too sure if I should try to save it or just put it in the pile for scraps. Maybe it will fit better when Miss G is alittle older but she dislikes it so much that I had to bribe her with a chocolate freddo to take these pics :/
I guess I did get a positive out of this... never try to make my own pattern from slightly vague instructions on the internet !
