Socialite Dress

This is the Socialite dress by Anna Maria Horner. Fabric also AMH -tablecloth in brown. This was an easy pattern, no zips, buttons. The gathering onto the yoke worried me but it all seemed to come together without problems. Centering the yoke pieces on such a strong print was tricky but really pleased with how the patterning worked out on the yoke. Next time I'll make the armholes bigger as a bit tight for my liking. My five year old took the photo and I think she did a pretty good job. Taken pre Thanksgiving dinner. Debating if I may use some of my Amy Butler Love for another version.
Hmm must get my roots done again....

Ottobre 3/2009 three way dress

I finished this dress for my oldest daughter some time ago but haven't got around to blogging it. This pattern is very sweet and I will make it again. Can also be made without the cap sleeves or with a full puff sleeve. I could have made a size smaller. Love the Andalucia fabric

The 'Zebra' skirt

Here are the pictures. I really liked Georgie in black and white but was just so hard to get her to wear these colours. The black and white clip was one I'd incidentally had put away in the drawer.

Now maybe a 'zebra' for moi as well. What do you think? Is a lovely heavy weight stretch cotton drill and I think would look fab as a little A-line skirt

Zebra Skirt

Tonight I whipped up a little black and White skirt for Georgie. This week at centre stage the colour is black. Miss G told me that is a 'yucky colour' and she didn't want to wear it. While at Spotlight today I was trying to entice her with some cute spots, but no. Then a graphic stripe a bit like a zebra caught my eye. Obviously zebra stripes in the eyes of a three year old is much more cool. Will post a picture tomorrow

A good night was had by all. An hour beforeTrick or treating the heavens opened . The rest of the evening proceeded umbrellas in hand so no shots from later in the evening. No great pics of the 'good witch' cape in pink so another time....
