Hippo Kaftan

Abandon taste all ye who enter here.  It's a muu-muu / kaftan.  It's lime green.  It's covered in hippos.  Bet you wish this little number came in adult sizes, no?
It's actually a nightdress pattern (from Making Children's Clothes by Emma Hardy), and would be perfectly respectable made up in white or a cute little ditsy print.  Its merits are slightly more questionable when made up in this rather lurid fabric (Ikea, £2/metre).

I wanted to test out the pattern before jumping straight in with a more expensive fabric, and I'm going to use it as a cover up for her around the pool when we go on holiday next month.  I'm sure the colours will look much more appropriate in the mediterranean sun (clutching at straws here...)

Ah well, when you're as cute as Bethan you can carry it off, just about!
