Very Cute Romper

Hi Everyone.
Well the school holidays have started, hooray.
I love them. No having to be up, dressed and out the door by 8.30am doing the school run, I can stay in my pyjamas and sew all day long.

I have made a few things this week, some my own pattern, others are either purchased or free downloads(love the free ones).
Today I’m showing you a Romper I made using a purchased pattern, New Look 6134.
For some reason it took me about 6 hours to make.
My husband was watching some old C.S.I episodes and I kept getting side tracked.

Anyway here it is. It’s a size Large, the packed says it fits a child that is 79 – 87cm tall and weighs 9.5 – 11kg. To me it looks very close to a size 2.

Front of romper. Yes, same fabric as the skirt but I love it.

Reversible Skirt


Today I received some lovely fabric from an Australian supplier called The Fabric Jungle. I only just found them last week.
They have a Wednesday night sale on Facebook, some great bargains.
As soon as I opened the parcel I knew exactly what I was going to do with some of it, a very cute and very simple reversible skirt.
I made it up in a size 2, can’t wait to try it on my friends little girl to see if I got the sizing right.
Will let you all know how it goes.

A big step for me.

Hi everyone.

I’m stepping into the word of blogging, don’t really know if I will succeed but I’m having a go.

I love to sew, its that simple.

I mainly sew little girls clothes, they are just so cute…

I will attempt anything except a tutu, those layers of tulle are just insane.

Over the years I have had a go at sewing most things, from curtains to vase covers. Vase covers you say, you will have to wait and see. I’m doing them for a dear friend that I work with.

I have only just discovered blogs and the wonderful world of online patterns and ideas. I know a bit behind the times but that’s me, very simple and like to stick with what I know. For those that know me I don’t handle change very well.

I think that will do for my first go at this blogging business, please bare with me while I try and figure it all out.

I’m hoping to figure out how to put links up to all the wonderful blogs I have discovered.
