A Start to Summer Sewing . . .

I made a start to my summer sewing today, determined to make both of my little ones some handmade clothes for summer.

I made this little skirt for Miss M, based on my 'Tilda' skirt design, just a simple elastic waisted skirt with panels of Alexander Henry's Starling fabric (i LOVE this print!) mixed with some Amy Butler (another fav). This will look very cute with a plain singlet or t-shirt, I might even applique something pretty using the same fabric.
And a little reversible pinny dress/top that I drafted up when I had plans of adding something like this to the shop. It is a little shorter than what I wanted for this size (this is a size 2), and the back panels don't seem full enough to cover the back area, will have to wait and try it on Miss M tomorrow for a better picture of how it fits. Will look very cute though over some little shorts or pants, or even for winter over a long top and some jeans.

Next up will be some shorts for Master T. Actual shorts that sit above the knee - not like the ones in the shops that may as well be pants they seem to make them so long. And some applique or freezer stencilled t-shirts.


  1. Both look great, but I really love the little pinni, just adorable!

  2. Hey looooooooooooooooooove the little dress. So very very gorgeous. Clever Clever lady. Love that you are living the Kre8ive Life....
