Going through my sewing basket, I realized that I had actually cut all the pattern pieces out for a pair months ago. Then I had forgotten all about it. So I sewed the floral vintage and $5 per metre fabric together and voila! One pair down. Though I did think they were a little snug. Maybe to do with the fact that I cut the fabric pieces when the little girl was quite a bit smaller.
So I think I found the solution. I found a cloth nappy ("diaper") modification to the original pattern over at Sew Liberated, going up a size (18 months in my case) as recommended. I had used this modification on the first pair, but it was cut in Violet's current size, not the size up.
Thrifted plaid wool and cotton seemed a nice Wintery choice, don't you think? The weightier fabric and reversible style seemed well suited for the colder days.
And because I was on a roll with all this weekend sewing, I added a vintage corduroy and Laura Ashley print together for number three.
They are actually a little long in length and I have a good feeling that they will fit next winter as well. As for the cloth nappy factor - they fit just right.
I think the smile says it all.
Not to mention a bit of "fun"sewing for mum.
