It’s spring… feels like summer though

It has been a long while since I’ve sat down and blogged. The weather has turned nice (no more rain, yay!) and Miss S and I have been playing on the deck and just hanging out. She turned 3 the other week and it won’t be long before she’s off to kindy. I can’t believe that 3 years has gone by just like that.

Anyhow, we’ve made a few visits to the fabric shops – this time Miss S got to choose fabrics for her dresses and twirly skirts. And some white blouses to go with the skirts. Oh… and a couple of lightweight cardigans too. I worked out that it was cheaper to make clothes for her than to buy then ready-made from shops. Only thing I can’t really make are socks and knickers.

Anyway… here are some pictures of what I have been working on.

As you can see, the dress and tops have bound edges. Gotta love bias binding!

Note: I used from an igloo’s formula for the tiered/twirly skirts measurements.
