Sewing catch up

Posted on

Feels like ages since my last post so thought I would have a little catch up.  I’m never not busy sewing just so busy being mum and sewing and having a life I don’t always get to blog too. 
So what have I been up to? I adapted my very favourite baby top style and created my own pattern for a top with a slightly frilly sleeve so I could use this adorable Little Matryoshka fabric.

I just love this style.  It was my favourite baby toddler pattern and I think my version is just as good.  I put a tie on the back of the neck instead of button or poppers just for a feature detail. 
The idea for the tie at the back of the neck came from this Daisy Kingdom pattern dress.

I just adore butterflies so love this fabric so much. I bought this while at the Sewing and Craft exhibition at the NEC.
I also managed a bit of upcycling and turned an old shirt of my Dad’s into a lovely summer dress.

I used the button detail down the back.  Whilst the weather is cold it looks lovely with a shirt underneath and leggings.

My little model isn’t always easy to photograph as she’s always on the move but now and then you get the perfect shot.  I just love this picture of her in the butterfly dress.

Now we just need summer sunshiny ! Come on British weather totally deserves a great bout of sun doesn’t it.
