Rainy day sewing

It has been raining here for most of the weekend.

Yesterday lunchtime, while some of the family napped, and my eldest sat beside me doing some colouring, I thought I'd get on and make something.

So, here's an elephant print version of a Mini Boden Knock off dress. I'll admit, the style is nothing like the feminine flowery original versions of this dress, but an "ephalant dress" is what had been requested a while ago by my three year old. What can I say? The girl adores elephants, and her mother indulges her. 

I used the tutorial found here - and, as I already had the pieces cut out (they'd been sitting in my cupboard for a month or so) the dress came together pretty easily.

Hip hip hooray! The dress is finished and the sun is shining.
