I’m wearing gingham, like generations of farm women behind me!
My gingham has a mandarin collar and a 70’s feel (I modified the duck dress pattern), which hopefully keeps it from feeling too literally farm-like.
I’m extra pleased by how I got the checks to match on the front: They match horizontally across the collar and across the front inset, and (mostly) vertically from the inset into the body. That’s a lot of 3/8 inch checks to keep track of while cutting out.
Toby, however, was underwhelmed by it last night:
(He’s on the ironing board here. Yes, I give my cat plastic bags to play with and let him sit on the ironing board while I’m ironing. It’s a good thing he’s not a human baby.)
Toby’s eyes are yellow but I think they’re turning greener as he grows up. I won’t be able to call him “Golden-Eyed Tobe” for much longer.
I’m sure your friend’s Sassy Lou will perk up–it’s a big change to move when you’re a little kitty!
Does Toby have blue, yellow or green eyes? I am curious as my best friend just adopted a 3 week old cat with the same coloring as Toby, but she has blue eyes. She is called “Sassy Lou” and is darling but not eating well. I am hoping she becomes as healthy as your Toby and as beautiful in coloring, too! I disagree with the previous comment that the people have to “get out more.” Having cats or dogs or ANY pet be part of your life and family is wonderful!!!
I absolutely love the dress. Color, collar, style, gingham…it is awesome and will be a wonderful fashion statement this Summer. Kudos to you for your finesse at sewing and hard work.
You two need to get out more… (not the cat, the people)
Baby, you already try to walk on your back paws. Don’t be distressed–play with your mousie toy.
