Gnomes World …Posted: July 27, 2014
Just a quick post today as we are going out shortly with the in-laws to celebrate a significant wedding anniversary (theirs, not ours!).
Yesterday I made this Kitschy Coo Mini Penny Pinafore for my little God daughter, Holly. She’s six and a half. We don’t have any children of our own, but Holly brings a lot of sunshine into our lives and is an adorable little girl with impeccable manners and a delightful nature.
Holly’s favourite colour is red, so I hope she will like this little summer dress.
The pattern is super easy to sew, and very practical, washable and supremely wearable. I can see that I’ll be making more of these – no doubt in a variety of themes!
The pattern covers from 6 months to 10 yrs, and there are tunic and dress lengths, plus short and long sleeve variations. After checking measurements, I made the short sleeve dress length in age 9/10, with age 8 length, as she doesn’t like things to be too close fitting. I’ve turned up a generous 2″ hem, so hope this will last her for a couple of seasons.
