Brilliant idea

So, I’m meant to be leaving for Napier in hrmmmm… approx 10 minutes. But in the mean time I thought I’d show off a dress I just made for the kid (instead of packing) mostly based on this tutorial.

It was very very almost a sack like creation but I managed to rescue it by taking it in a pile and then adding an elasticated waist. Quite cute I think!! Pity my guess-the-hem game didn’t pay off. I did my usual trick of deciding it was too long and then just hacking a pile off the bottom… it seems the kid has grown more than I thought and it was a biiiiiiit on the micro mini side. So then I decided to procrastinate some more and made her some little black leggings and wooooooooooo yeah. It looks good.

Fabric was a genius score from the Global Fabrics sale. It’s a fine wool with the coolest print. I’m in love with it! It was originally chosen to be a dress for me… but now I’ve made the kid a dress I may have to think that. Somehow I don’t think matching mama-daughter clothes have gotten any cooler.

Right. Time to pack now! Off to a friend’s wedding for the weekend so I’ll catch ya back here Monday when I’m all gushy and mushy and mostprobablystillhungthefreakover.

Crap. The boy is home. I’m in trouble.

  1. my mother always threatened to make us mother and daughter matching outfits if I didn't clean my room. The only threat that worked. that said, my school friend nikki had her mum turn up to the school dance with a matching outfit she'd bought as a “surprise”. poor girl sat in the toilets all night and cried.
