The latest is a little dress with an elastic neckline and a bit of length so that she can wear it for a while to come. It can always be used as a tunic later on as long as the neck fits over her head. And since it fits over mine, I can only assume it will last for a while.

The trick was to get the cap sleeve and the underarm finish to look good. I took a cue from a ready made dress and serged the sleeve to shoulder attachment and the underarm part in one fell swoop and then folded in the underarm hem. This pushed the entire serged seam to roll to the inside. The finish is tidy and looks good from the right and wrong sides.
