an elephant pocket
I found this great spotty cotton, which in its former life (yesterday) was a big ladies nightshirt on sale for a bargain £2, to me it was begging to be turned into a little girls pinny/dress. And doesn't the sweet elephant pocket make you happy? I love this pattern for its simplicity, I made the changes I had planned to the original pattern, straightening and extending the sides, and sewing a join at the shoulders rather than a tie or button, and it all worked very well.
I love how I can whip one of these up in no time at all, so satisfying, and I haven't been able to help but smile today seeing my little one wearing another dress that I have made her. We spent a lot of today at the park, and the rest at the cafe. We also met up with Julia, back from her Scotland jaunt, and she bought me back many presents, which I will show you tomorrow.
