Little dresses...

After having 5 boys in a row... and then two little girls, my world of pink and dresses has blossomed!  

I love this recent addition....

This fabric is gorgeous... I actually cringed at cutting this but look at the result.  I'm pleased.

What do you think?


  1. I absolutely love this dress Nat. I love the style, the fabric, its just so pretty. I'm a bit like you when it comes to cutting fabric. I'm sure I hold my breath when I first start cutting lol I just want to do the fabric justice.

    Have you made some of these for your girls? I would love to make Lila some in this style. Mind you, she'd probably have it off in 5 seconds flat lol

    Beautiful work xx

  2. Thanks Jayne. Yes, Isabella and Sophia have a wardrobe full. I started out making theirs and it's one of those styles that is timeless, can be worn all year 'round with the addition of longsleeves, tights and jackets for the cooler months. Plus the added benefit of this style is .... it can be worn as a top once too short to wear as a dress.

    I have a pile of fabric that I just can't bring myself to cut just yet.... same thing as you Jayne, just want to do the fabric justice.

    You'd enjoy making these Jayne.. and I"m sure Lila would love them too.
