Satin Flower Girl

                                                     Flower girl dresses are such a delight to make. Here is Remi in her cream satin gown looking 
adorable.

Remi's dress was drafted from a picture her mother had drawn, after I took Remi's measurements I was able to start creating. Remi came in for one fitting, to check the zip placement and measure the hem. She was almost jumping out of her skin when the dress was finally ready for her to wear, such a long wait for a little princess :)

Cute Cotton Cossies


I am just loving making these cute cotton Cossies. This pair have been adapted from my first sample pattern, working with a fit that is more comfy. It is so much fun matching the vintage buttons and  ric rac trim with the fabric pattern. There are some lovely fabrics around especially the quilting fabs. I will be finalising the patterns soon and grading them for size. Then a new range will be available for sale!!

Roz in Quilting Fab


Roz my niece, gorgeous and sweet in a dress made from quilting cotton. This dress has cotton lace, hand dyed in coffee to give a vintage feel. Fitted bodice with neckline paneling and contrast cotton insert. An A line skirt and fitted sleeves. Centre back zipper.
The quilting cotton is beautiful to sew, has a lovely feel to wear and is very durable. I also find there is a large range of pattern designs and colours to chose from, especially vintage inspired. 
Perfect for a summer cotton dress.
