Gorgeous plaid, many compliments - Nov 23, 2014
This top is beautiful - we got compliments and folks stopping us to ask where we got it both times my daughter wore it out. The colors are rich and the combo is striking.
But unfortunately after a wash the lace trim got quite stiff and as cute as the neckline is, it will no longer go over my baby's head! She is a week shy of 4 months old and can no longer wear the 3-6 month size top we have because the stiff lace just won't fit over her head. :( Her head is about 60th percentile so it's not like she has a huge noggin. I think this is just a design challenge for this top, along with the armholes being very difficult to get baby's arms in and out of, since the woven fabric is not stretchy (and even the bias give is just not sufficient to make this a workable neckline/armhole size for a baby's pullover garment). Sadly my baby was only able to wear this gorgeous top twice before it became apparent that it would be dangerous to try to force her sweet little head and arms into it once more.
The fabric was incredibly soft before we washed it but it did roughen up a bit and start pilling a little after that first wash too (and I did turn it inside out and dried on low).
Overall such a stunning and cozy fall/winter top, I just wish I could still put it on my baby girl. Perhaps size up and hand wash/line dry to avoid the issues I encountered.
