Maria came to the rescue as my problem solver and sent me a huge package in the mail - with an undertunic, a woolen tunic for my two-year old, and a pair of needlebound mittens that I once made myself - for her son, who is a couple of years older than mine. Thank you, sweetie!
The undertunic is PERFECT. I will use it to make a new pattern for a tiny, tiny cotehardie since the one enclosed in the mail was too small, and it will take only a tiny bit more work to make a new one from scratch than to adjust for a larger size. Mittens are neat to have at all times and in any case, and right now these are a particularly snug fit.
