Madeline begged me to knit this for her for her 5th birthday. It's wet in the pictures and laying flat to dry, but I couldn't wait to show it off.

It's wet and drying (hence the weird pattern on the top, it's the wetness of it). Knit out of 100% cotton yarn. The pattern is Mermaid with Fishtail Skirt out of Fairy Tale Knits.

The top (with Madeline in it)

Thanks :D

So cute! I can sew, but I can't knit or crochet to save my life. . .this is lovely work!

I'm the opposite, I can knit, crochet and do about anything with fiber, a sewing machine and myself - we don't get along. No matter how hard I have tried to sew, I always end up frustrated and ready to throw a sewing machine out the door!

That's lovely! Is it soft? I always thought knits were scratchy.

and your daughter is adorable.

It is soft - it's knit with 100% cotton and even after it was washed, it stayed soft!!!

She has major sensory issues, so everything that is knit for her has to be smooth and soft for her to wear it next to skin. She has a couple of tops that are knit from merino wool, and she wears undershirts under them to be able to wear them.

Is the top just basic ripple all around?
I'm wondering if maybe ripple would be flattering to a big body like mine...

The pattern is simple - Knit two together, knit (how ever many stitches needed for sizing), make one right, knit one, make one left, knit, knit two together through back loop, repeat from beginning.

I have seriously thought about modifying the pattern to make myself one, but not sure how the top would do for umm, larger chest.

I will - I have to get Madeline's & Marshall's winter jackets done (and a bag that matches this outfit) before I even try to start on anything for me.

Are you even able to finish projects like that?
I'm not, as soon as there's a deadline the project is doomed :(

Depends on how busy my school work is and how willing the kids to let me knit....I do usually stay up waaaaay too late to knit and work on things for them.
