Thanks for the feedback ladies... admittedly I kind of guessed on the neckline as I haven't done one before :oops: Thinking I might rework that section a bit (but haven't done so yet :oops:)

ETA - AliG, yours looks like the one I did, so probably how I intended :lol: but yeah might re-work it anyway :lol:

Love the colour Julie - and it does look like a great fit on your wee cutie pie!

Finally got around to taking photos of DD2 with the singlet. Mum said she was also a little confused by the neckline and she has done it different to some of the others already finished. But she has left the ends out so I can unpick it and re-do if necessary.

DD is 6.5mths and weighs approx 7.4kg

Here we go, modelled on DS who has jsut turned 3 but fits a size 2 top with size 3 length. I've loving the extra length in this and it will fit him for ages around. It isn't gapey across the back when he has his head up normally either, although is a bit loose (but he's pretty narrow across the shoulders.

Finally here is a photo of Lachlan in the singlet :D

And yes you are right I did the neck the same as Ali. I was also a bit confused about it, and was going to ask for a photo... but ended up guessing instead :D

Lachlan is 4.5months and about 6.6kg Plenty of room widthwise but unsure if it would fit lengthwise to 12months... but hard to know!

hmmmm, well mine looks different to the one I have ..... I'll get some pics but mine is longer and skinnier. Not so sure I got the neck right. Pics on the final pattern of where to sew would be awesome!
