Gnomes World …

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.

    Oh it looks adorable! It’s actually fun sewing small cute clothes… always puts a smile on my face and I have a feeling it put quite a few on yours as well 🙂

    Love it! I haven’t bought this pattern but I have seen it on the website. I like the option for using two fabrics dress. Is the fabric also from Kitschy Coo?

      Thanks Helen! The recipient is very happy with it, I’m told it’s getting lots of wear! The Gnomes World fabric came from eBay, and the red & white stripes came from Kitschy Coo. I’ve promised a similar dress for a colleague’s 2 yr old, which I hope to make this weekend, as I have a little of both fabrics left over.
