A close friend of mine works at Coles supermarket. During the Commonwealth Games in India the deli staff wore fancy Indian-inspired aprons. By the end of the games she’d acquired four of the aprons which she then gifted to me. The aprons are made from a cotton drill – so perfectly hard wearing for play clothes. There was enough material in the four aprons to make Ms. M a dress and a pair of pants.
The dress is lined with pink flannelette remnants and the buttons were found in my collection, I have a funny feeling they were from a single breasted jacket with substantial shoulder pads I used to wear in the 1980s.
There wasn’t enough material left over for any fussy-cutting so the pants are a little odd me thinks in terms of the pattern… but hey they certainly fit the quirky refashioned homemade play clothes brief.
Ms. M is happy enough in both…
… and yes she is looking for her baby in the second shot! … and no I did not give her that horrid hair cut – I’m still in shock that such a hack job cost $10! Humpf.
