Posh Frock

Elsa's turn....
We saw Zara's.
Same request from me, something easy to make.
 Busy days.....
Elsa chose a simple halter neck style.
But in very un-simple fabrics.
Dupion silk from my stash, with a layer of black lace over the bodice.
An invisible zip to keep the clean lines.
A self tie makes a sweet bow.
Fully lined with bemsilk.
And how did it look?
Fabulous Dahling!
Perfectly Elsa.
Sophisticated but not too much.
A fabulous colour on her.
Sigh, so grown up.
They had a great night!
(Hugo purchased his suit but I did make his shirt)

    1. Thank you, it is great fun to sew posh frocks, but a wee bit stressful when pushed for time!

    1. Thank you Cindy.
      I was not sure about the lace at all, but I think she pulls the look off.

  8. What a beautiful crew! And look how much sewing you are doing with your new little one. I think with more on our plates, we need a little time to recharge with some sewing - Am I right? ;)

    1. I agree Rachel, I love my sewing time.
      The dynamic is changing though. Hugo needs less clothes but more difficult items, jeans, shirts a over coat (eep) but the Twins want mainly sportswear.
      Thank you, enjoy your sweet baby.

  9. Wow, they all look stunning (Matilda as well :) Love her happy smile)!
    I can't even believe you did it all by yourself with a newborn in the house. You should be so proud!
