My Truffle needs all the cheer she can come by right now. She has been having tummy troubles (GERD) since early summer, and we are making another trip to the doctor's office tomorrow, hoping further testing will reveal a cause. I whipped up this little outfit to brighten her week.
This little dress and pinafore are made from the pattern over at Sugar City Journal. I used the Goose Girl variation and improvised the pinnie. Cut size 4, but used the size 5 length. The fabrics are a lightweight plaid shirting and a fine Japanese twill with bears and delicious-looking trees. It has three pockets across the front, the middle of which is just big enough to hold a very special Bear-Bear.
On another note: We celebrated the long-awaited time change with a new game, played in the now early evening darkness. It is a German board game called Shadows in the Woods, and is delightful for the whole family. Ok, not toddlers, but they're asleep (hopefully!) by the time the game begins anyway. Darkness and candlelight are fascinating at any age. The dwarfs, woods, and forest creatures just frost the cake.
