    Needlewoman, your version looks adorable! Think I’ll try it without the sleeves next time!

    Just to clarify, I did not have a problem with putting over the head — just getting arms into the sleeves….which I think would be solved by using a fabric with more stretch.

    Yesterday my daughter gave the corduroy playtime dress back to me and asked if I could please make it easier to get on.
