Little girls dresses..vintage recycled



Here is a little custom order jobbie that I totally love...really happy how it turned out. It took me a while to work out the best border print for this yellow & brown colour combo...not a colour palette I have used very much before, but I think the result is one of my best yet. Hope the little girl liked her Christmas gift...probably not as exciting as a plastic toy!!

Hope your Christmas and holiday time has been all you hoped for...we had a very relaxed "at home" Christmas this year. Great to catch up with friends, even one I hadn't seen for close to 20yrs. Argh now that sounds like a comment from someone soon to approach forty.

Welcome 2010, hope it will be a good one for you. I have made a new years resolution to get serious about my little label, which means 2010 is my International Year of Sewing. As I type there are six little girls dresses made from recycled floral sheets & vintage fabric sitting here just looking at me begging to be finished. Any day now.

I'd take that over a plastic toy any day. Then again, I don't actually like plastic toys. Yellow and brown looks great. In my opinion, there's way too much pink in the world, about time these young girls started wearing something interesting. I made a similar new years resolution, not sure how that one's going to pan out, but we can only try I guess. Good luck!

I LOVE that dress! I found that sheet at the oppy the other day, still in its original wrapper.

Oh my goodness - this dress is amazing. Forget the kids...I'd wear that anyday. Could see myself in a big person's version of this, skipping down my local supermarket aisle.
