First, I sewed a dress for a friend's baby that is on the way. Baby dresses are so fun. I bought the Sunrise Designs pattern, which seems to be off the market now, when I still hoped I might need it for my own family. But I've had a great time using it for others. Most of the pieces of this dress came from the smallest scraps, and did not make a significant dent in the pink stack, so I tried something for me.
I used Simplicity 2936 and an embroidered linen blend, and it is perfect.
Now, as it turns out, my boys have not always been averse to pinkness. I think all four of them have claimed pink as a favorite color at some time. So I asked each if he would like a pink bow tie. The Caterpillar said that he probably would not wear one, which was fine. The others clearly said "Yes," so I planned to make three. I started with one bow tie, which turned out nicely, and offered it to the younger boys. Each denied any desire or interest in a pink bow tie. I was a bit miffed, but put it away for the future.
Lo and behold, Scoot asked to wear the pink bow tie yesterday.
Aren't we a lovely couple? Note: Scoot was standing on a step. He is not that tall. Yet.
I still have plenty of pink. Any requests?
