Wonderful! I have been wanting to create my own pattern for a peasant shirt.

I linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:

Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. I am finding it very helpful. Could you suggest me how to modify it for toddlers? I would like to make a few for my 2yr old daughter. Can it be used without any modifications. I tried once, but something seemed off. I will try again, but just want to know if this will work for kids as well. Thanks again.
