Little House on the Prairie Dress, and an Recycled Pinafore
She asked me a while back if I thought I could make her a Little House on the Prairie dress, and I told her I would see what I could do. I found a vintage pattern in my stash, and finally got the dress made. I was about to cut out the pinafore to go over it, when I spied a lone curtain laying across the bed in the spare bedroom where I sew. It was white with little tucks, and looked very reminiscent of a pinafore. I cut it in half, folded the top down a couple of times, ran some elastic through, made and attached some straps, and wa-la, a pinafore. I stitched it together in the front and attached a pretty button to finish it off. She was pleased, and so was I. Doesn't she make a cute little prairie girl?
Her next request has already been made. She wants a cape like Little Red Riding Hood.
