Last winter I promised my daughter to make her a “zebra” dress. We bought fabric and chose a pattern, and that was that,… Till this winter, I decided to make a “zebra” hat as well, as children like dressing up I tought this might be a good idea. No she can wear it as a costume for dressing up, or she can wear the dress for daily wear.
For the dress I used a simple A-line dress pattern from Ottobre design. the pattern for the hat I drafted myself. For the zebra"hair" I used natural knittingwool (samband saga), this wool is a bit stiff, so it stands up. To give it a real bristle kind of look, I sewed several short lengths of wool parallel to the ears behind each other. The dress has pink synthetic lining, I left the hat unfinished because it’s a kind of toy, not a piece of garment.
She so fond of her dress, she likes to wear it with her leopard legging.
fake fur, synthetic lining, invisible zipper, button, small leftover of “teddy”, black knitting wool
