I missed out on the ScrapHappy fun in February because of other things going on. February saw the husband & myself redecorating the living room (all done). Me with big plans of making sofa covers (started well, but I ran out of motivation) . . . and then catching up on housework before visitors in March. Lindashee & Mr Lindashee flew over from England for a few days, and Eldest son & girlfriend drove up from the south of France.
House suddenly emptied on 11th, so after a day of stripping beds, and catching up with more housework, my thoughts turned to ScrapHappy and my sewing machine.
I originally sat down, with leftover fabrics (from 2 pairs of shortie PJs made in November) to make something summery for Baby Viking using pattern NewLook 6970. Baby Viking will be 1 year old in August, and since babies always seem to be wearing the next size up, I decided to cut fabric for the 18-24 month size. As it turns out, this pattern seems to size up very large . . . and I ended up with a little pinafore dress that fits Daisy, who is a 2-3 year size.
The idea was to make something with scraps/leftovers. I achieved that. And got more sewing practice along the way.
It’s a good fit on the shoulders for Daisy, and looks lovely with the little bolero cardie I knitted for her. I haven’t given up on the idea of making this pattern again, for Baby Viking, but one size smaller and not necessarily with scraps.
