The Orange Dress

This little dress makes me smile. It is the same as the pattern used for the Cherry Dress, obviously just with different fabrics. And they WORK so much. Again, the photo does not do the dress any justice at all, it is such a vibrant & very happy dress :)

Spotty Pillowcase Dress

This little dress is just so gorgeous, the colours work really well together I think. It would be a great summer frock as the ties form the sleeves & are adjustable. Also, it will be great for winter: imagine it with a long sleeved top underneath & with leggings/boots. The top fabric is a sheer one, so you can see the patterns underneath.

The Cherry Dress.

How gorgeous is this toddler dress?? I bought the pattern via a PDF pattern on Etsy - so how modern & up to date am I? The beauty of the PDF pattern is that I only have to buy it once, then print it out at any time & just cut out the size that I need. This dress is a size 3, & a wonderful combination of two of my favourite colours, pink & green. I love that the fabrics fit together so well, when really they probably shouldn't.

A gorgeous ruffled skirt!

I found this pattern on the internet & absolutely fell in love with it. Of course, I could only buy it on the internet so had to wait AGES for it to arrive ((I am not so patient at times!)) Mum came fabric shopping with me, & thank goodness for that, because picking seven different fabrics to fit with each other in some way is not so easy. Luckily Mum & I have similar tastes, & it was such fun to do with her. The skirt itself was really easy to make, it is basically just panels, with no tricky sewing at all.
