Infant Tomten in Use
Here is our one-month old granddaughter modeling her pink cotton tomten. I was surprised at how well it fit her (at 11 pounds) and also how much stretch there is for room to grow.
I found out I put the top button way too high (see second picture -- it's level with her mouth, on the right). I forgot babies don't have necks! So I just snipped that button off, and since I used I-cord hidden buttonholds, no harm done.
Also, I should have either made smaller buttonholes or used bigger buttons. (See how the buttons have worked loose in the second picture.) It will be easy to fix with a stitch or two to shorten the buttonholes, but we live 1000 miles away so our daughter will have to do it!
(Her legs aren't really blue -- not sure why the color turned out that way.)
