I started with the 'la chemise col claudine Lussac les Chateaux' (Peter Pan Collar of Lussac les Chateaux - a small town in western France). The drawings were very clear and so it didn't matter I couldn't read the instructions!
I used a lovely small floral pattern. I think the final blouse has a Liberty feel about it. The simple pink buttons down the back finish it off perfectly.
I ended up making the age 4 size - French children must be small! And I lowered the front of the neckline slightly.
Now the much more complicated shorts to attempt...
