When I went up into the loft for the Christmas decorations, I also fetched down something from my Treasure Box, and gave it a wash. It was a little jacket I made for Liz back in the early 80s. I had bought a bag of Laura Ashley Corduroy scraps for 50p and I'd also got a remnant of plain blue chintz. I cut out a simple jacket, with a Velcro front fastening. I appliqued a skyline on the front, and the back - day and night. Liz always called it her "Sun, Moon and Stars" coat.
I lined it with some leftover floral print from a maternity dress I had made a couple of years earlier- and for the cloud and moon, used scraps of leftover fabric from my wedding dress. One little house was open at the top, to make a pocket...
I suspect it will still be a little too big for Rosie, but I shall take it to her at the weekend anyway.
I hope that before too long, she will enjoy wearing it as much as her Mum did.
