Ooo, this photograph looks awful blurry, yet absolutely crystal clear before I uploaded it with Blogger. (Well, maybe not crystal as my photography skills are lacking, but oh so much better than the fuzziness I see before me). Help - anyone have any idea why this might be?
Hopefully you can see through the blurriness and observe that this is indeed a sweet pattern. It is Betty Kingston's crossover pinny and nappy cover pattern, made with a denim and a floral from the piles and this is the dearest part
A reversible pinny! The seams of the pinny are obviously all hidden away so a rather neat make, though I may use Lotta Jansdotter's bloomers pattern next time - used here - just for the added contrast binding. And the other thing I think I may do next time (because oh yes, there will be a next time just to warn any of my friends with suitably aged little ones) is to add some giant ric rac peeping out of the hem of the pinny... Wouldn't it look so sweet poking out from the denim?
The photograph above has reminded me that I top stitched the edges of the pinny, which isn't mentioned in the pattern, because I like the finish and also in the hope that even those teeny contrasting white stitches help to break up all the denim. Must remember the ric rac trim next time!
We lovingly parcelled the pinny up with a copy of
to wish dear Polly the happiest of first birthdays!
