I made myself a copy of a pair of shorts the other day, and ended up with a bit of leftover lightweight teal denim. I pondered what to do with the scraps, then played with Miffy for a while, then looked at the scraps again and VOILA an idea was born: I would make Miffy a little vesty dress to prance around in!
Deciding it was going to be too hot to make the entire thing out of the denim, I concocted a pattern for a vest that would only sit on her back with lining and cute ruffles supplied by some floral remnants from my stash. I used some scrap elastic to secure the vest underneath her and around her chest, but she seems to have conveniently “ripped” the elastic around her chest so I will make a strap with a button closure to fix that problem. (We don’t think she chewed it, I have a feeling it got caught on something in the yard while we weren’t looking.)
This has been a gratuitous Miffy based post. You’re welcome!
