The short dress/diaper cover combo is perfect for summer. I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER to sneak a peak at a little green bum!
I started out following this tutorial at you and mie but had to take a slight detour due to some poor measurements and/or calculations on my part. I'm usually lazy about trying garments on mid-process, but thank goodness I wrapped this around her to check buttonhole placement because if I had actually put the buttonholes in I would have found out it wouldn't GO all the way around! I remedied by putting the front in the back and using loops instead of buttonholes.
I left the rest of the back open, and because I used the entire circle, it overlaps quite nicely to cover her tushy unless she's completely upside down.
I used the linen-look fabric from JoAnn that I've seen pop up over and over again on other blogs. It was my first time with it and I LOVED it. I love the richness of the colors, I love the feel of the fabric, I love the affordable price - especially when you wait for a sale or use a coupon! I can't wait to get and use more!

There there's that green bum I've been waiting for...
Yeah for summer!
