Going Retro

Do you remember when I told you about the wonderful cords, that Amy sent me? Well, last night I cut into some of it.

I made the “Nasta” pinafore dress once before, and I thought it would be perfect for this wonderful retro print. Also, last time I made it, I actually traced it one size smaller in length to make sure she would be able to crawl in it. However, now that she’s walking most of the time, I think it’s ok for her to have it dress length.


I still really like this pattern – I was totally unsure of what colour to go with for binding and pocket, but I think this works nicely – I’m actually quite fond of this one!

By the way, if you’re interested, the coupon for Fabric.com expires tonight Danish time – I believe in about 5 hours.

    Amy – Thanks – you know you helped cook this one up! 🙂 I promise it won’t be long ’till you see Frida in it! (She has been wearing it today, but it was too dark, when I came home…)

    Rikke – tak skal du have – og ønsket er i øvrigt noteret! 😉

    Maria – you’re right about that – I do think, though, that orange would have been a bit too much for me. 😉 Thanks!

    Fru Tuck Lind – Tusinde tak skal du have! Det er nummer 3 fra Ottobre 04/08 – og de kalder det en forklædekjole, men den krydser altså ikke på ryggen – for og bag er stort set ens. Jeg synes, det er et rigtig fint mønster! 🙂

    Sandra T – thank you so much! 😉

    Helinä – thanks, you’re sweet!

    Maria – tak skal du have! 🙂

    Jeannine – I’ll be back with modeled pics! Thanks! 😉

    Sara – I do love this fabric too. Thanks! 🙂

    Karen – Friday – wasn’t that the name of Robinson Crusoe’s friend? LOL – I’ll get her to model it soon!

    Michal – you’re so kind, thanks! 🙂

    Marina – tusinde tak skal du have – man kan jo også bare være heldig som her at få det rigtige stof forærende! 🙂

    Julia – Iiih altså! Tak! 😉
