Winter has really set in here. We have been lucky so far to have mostly sunny days even if it is crisp outside, but the mornings are becoming noticeably colder (this morning our pipes were frozen and we had to run the shower for about 5 minutes before they thawed out and the pressure picked up!)
I was determined to make Lil another Sprout dress sooner rather than later so that she could get some good wear out of it and knew that she would be happy wearing it on cold mornings to church.
Last night I made this for her:
It took me awhile to decide on the fabric for this one but I am really happy with how it turned out. Pretty red with a splash of aqua is a stunning combo and she looks very Little Red Riding-Hoodish. (I haven't finished with the Ta Dot fabric yet and couldn't resist it in flannel!!!)
The side pockets are a hit - especially as they are lined with flannel and keep her hands toasty and warm.
Seeing her wear this today made me think seriously about an adult version that many of you hinted at when the pattern was first released. It would be so super comfortable and warm - especially teamed with a pair of winter boots.
Cheeky smile! It is so hard to get an un-posed photo of Lil at the moment...she insists on screwing up her nose poking her tongue between her cheeks. Full of mischief - love it!!!
