Jay Gatsby, eat your heart out!

I'm running out of little hangers! My stroke of GENIUS (taking home a domestic machine and overlocker) has meant that I'm squeezing in a seam here, a hem there... in between computer boot-ups and coffee brewing, pigtail plaiting and tooth brushing... and the little dresses, pants and tops are stacking up in the wee one's wardrobe.

They're all variations made from 3 New Look patterns... I'd take this opportunity to highly recommend them but I've left them at the studio and I can't remember the style numbers. This is one of them - very cute and simple to sew. (Lara would probably know the others... Lara...?).

Your wee girl has a beautiful array of pretty things to wear. What a lucky girl to have a mama that sews for her!

Sounds like you are feeling better, I guess your "remedy" worked great!
Love all the new clothing, that little pattern looks like it would be fun and very addictive to sew!

DANG girl! Way to go!! That must give you such a sense of accomplishment every time you do laundry or open her closet!

Dear me!! I have three girls and none of them have been lucky enough to have that many cute frocks!! If you ever run out of room in the cupboard I will happily keep some in mine ;)

Do we get to see them modelled?

Wherever do you find the time and the energy? You continue to inspire Nikki.
