I did not had enough fabric to make the longer pants version but I could cut a 3/4 legs and used different batiste fabric to line the body.
On the black one I skipped the back tie - I was planning on adding one later but after wearing it I realized the shoulders doesn't drift so I will probably leave it like that. On the cream one I used contrast yellow stripes - it seemed a good idea at the time but I didn't like the coordination in the end...

It is a few centimeters longer and I drafted a collar for it to be more in sync with Eva's jumpsuit.
It was such a lovely fabric to sew with and it's even nicer to wear.

This time I kept the scooped neck. It is just to cute to eliminate and drafted another collar for this neck line. Used white heart shaped snaps for the closing and strings with a snap to prevent the shoulders drift.
I also added a bit more room for the legs and used white top stitching for hems, pockets and inner leg seam.
For the final touch I added a left over lace band to create a front central band.
I am so happy i started this. It took me a few days to finish since I worked slowly on the details but it was all worth it. She could not be more adorable wearing it.
Because of the busy fabric I skipped the collar but used the scooped neck and strings. I double the front and back piece and used yellow snaps for closing the back. I tried to center the print a bit and mach the center front row for top and pants.
