Too Busy to Blog.

I won't apologise as I know most of you are in the same boat.
Life is busy but I am still having a ball!.
Isn't she gorgeous?
I am sewing, slowly but surely.
I made myself a Liesl+Co Weekend Getaway blouse.
I used hanky linen (ramie) which sews (and irons) like a dream.
I went with a size 12, like last time but I must make the effort to FBA this baby and make the size 8.
It fits just fine but is a bit pouffy.


I used a very special MoP butterfly button for the pockets.
Sent to me by my special friend Claire.
And I trimmed the neck with my special speckily voile.
Now for Miss Trixie......
A divine little Bubble dress made with the scraps from my Long Lunch tunic
We have a wedding this weekend and is predicted to be over 40 degrees.
Hopefully linen lined with voile will be cool enough.
I used delicate MoP flower buttons and hand stitched the bodice in place instead of my usual top stitching.
Finally, a quick black tee for Matilda.
The Oliver+S Field Trip t-shirt with the cutest little pocket.
Believe it or not this is all Tildy needed for Presentation Night.
As per her measurements, we made the size 2T with the length of a 4.
The fabric is a thick super stretchy cotton lycra.
The sleeve cuffs look a bit dodgy but I had to use a different finishing technique as my cover stitch machine is a bit unwell.
They have already settled down.

So, a bit of a catch up post.

See you later alligator!

  7. Oh, I remember being concerned about my chubby babies overheating (even at the much cooler temperatures in this part of the world, I must say). Was the dress cool enough? It's certainly adorable enough!
