What I have been working on… a vintage inspired diaper cover…!

What I have been working on in the background whilst “life” happens….

I can’t really finish these until I know that the button placement is right (ie. after the baby is born) but thought I would share for those Enid Gilchrist fans who had seen her pattern for “modesties” in various pattern books. I did a few searches on the net and couldn’t find any examples so hopefully this might be useful to someone considering giving the pattern a whirl. These are designed to be worn over nappies or diapers.

The centre button accommodates two buttonholes. It is a 40s pattern but I have used a Lisette 40s inspired cotton with flannel for an inside lining… As you will see, I have deviated from the pattern to some degree but retained the basic shape providing 1/2 inch seam allowances when stitching this one up…!

So, here it is!
