McCall's 5966

Eleanor is great to make for. She's little, so the projects don't require a lot of fabric or time, and she hasn't yet developed a particular taste, so she gets excited about whatever I make. Love that.
This is really just a trial run of the above pattern, made in size 3. It's big on her, which I wanted to check - the length is right, but around the body and the sleeves are too big. I think when I make it again in it's intended fabric (warm cord/cotton), I'll make it in size 2 but add some to the length.
The other change I made was to lose the zipper at the back and make it so it can be pulled over the head. Makes it easier to get herself dressed, and I'm all for toddler independence (to a degree, of course).
