The Children love Book Character day. This morning I spotted, Snape, Red Riding Hood, Pippi Longstocking, The Invisible Man, The Cat in the Hat and many others. I couldn't resist when I saw this pink and white candy stripe cotton jersey in the fabric shop. The pattern is a Simplicity nightie, and it is such soft jersey that we intend to recycle this costume as a nightie - probably tonight. I will happily reassure myself that if you can guess Ivy's costume, then my sewing skills MUST be improving!
