Making bits and bobs

I have been trying to finish off old projects and make a couple of little dresses for some of my friends kids so i thought i would post the pics here. When i am making things for myself i like to take a little break form designing and use some of the great patterns that are out there......

So first up this little number, it is now completely finished but these pics were taken while i was still int he process of putting it together 

This pattern is form the beautiful online vintage pattern shop http://www.colettepatterns.com/ If your new to the game or fancy giving sewing a go there are lots to chose form. The patterns are so cleverly designed and the instructions so easy to follow they make a perfect place to start. 
I will post some pics of me in the dress at my country wedding at the end of this month.

My second little project was a dress for my Streatham neighbors (well they were but they just moved). They have the most beautiful daughter and i could not resist making her a little Hawaiian print number. Look how lovely she looks :)

Again i can take all the credit for this one. The pattern was loaded up onto a great sight for sewers called burdastyle.com and you can find it by searching for popover dress.

That's all for now but i have been super busy so more creations to come
