    We are finally getting around to sewing this lovely pattern and were wondering the ease of getting it over a child’s head. Should we lengthen the placket slightly (without altering the integrity of the pattern) if our niece is traumatized when pulling ‘tight’ things over her head? IF this would be helpful, has anyone attempted it and what steps would make the process as smooth as possible?

    The size will determine my answer @frances-suzanne
    Up to size 2T, yes. After that I found it perfect.

    I found it plenty for the size 5 and 6. My girl has a decent sized noggin and she’s no fan of the tight neck hole.

    Thanks @motherof5 and @cybele727 for taking the time to respond!! We will be sewing a size 4T, with added length to the hem, so maybe we’ll be okay :).

    Great tip, Nicole — I will bear it in mind when making the tiny sizes.

    @frances-suzanne that’s exactly the size/length I just made for my 4&3/4 year old and no probs at all with head hole size. Have fun. That placket is gold!
