 A quick post to keep you all up to speed with this weeks shenanigans .  I have a very busy couple of weeks coming up so I took the opportunity to finish off a couple of jobs I had started and then put down in favour of other projects.When I got married I was determined to have a Trousseau and I bought a beautiful skirt from Jackpot as part of it
However within minutes of being on honeymoon I put on weight and the skirt was too tight.   I passed it on to my Mum  who recently returned it and I was loathed to pass it on again as it held too many memories.
 So I decided to make a dress for big kidlet, I have done some sewing in the past but still thought I should go for the easiest pattern I could find.  Unfortunately there wasn't quite enough width on the skirt so I had to improvise a bit.  And the dress was slipping off her shoulders so I also had to add a tie at the back to keep it up.
I was very happy with the corsage, she hasn't worn it yet.

My next job was to use the artwork I created for my Mad Hatters Tea Party.  I loved the silhouettes that had been left so I gathered together some bits and bobs and made pictures for the kidlet's bedroom.


  1. What a lovely dress! Can't wait to see it and the bedroom!

  2. It looks beautiful, what a lucky kidlet you have! I bought a book about a year ago called "making children's clothes" by Emma Hardy (it comes complete with 25 lovely patters) and as you may have already guessed I haven't got around to making any of them yet but having seen your lovely dress has made me think maybe I should give it a go x

  3. I love the dress you made! Hope you have had a lovely weekend xx

  4. You have been VERY clever to make that dress, I wouldnt even dare try!! Sewing is not my forte, well maybe small bits and pieces. It looks really great, I bet kidlet will look gorgous in it.

    I am having a Crafty Give Away on my Blog if you fancy popping over to have a look:)
