Zips, buttons and poopsies, oh vey

Zips... like riding a bike. Do it once, then its a ride in the park.

This white linen look dress teamed with every girls best friend - needs another press and a proper shoot - I'm hoping this one will be popular. I loved making this dress, it was a nights work to sew up. And that... its a heart shaped pocket. Age 5.

I'm making a sister one, replacing this print for the cherry's fabric.

And... in the real life goings on of half term, the Nosh has been unwell. Poor little thing. Three days went by this week without me sewing as I was just too knackered to get on the machine after sleepless nights. And, last night, I just wanted to watch the Brits!

Yesterday, we went to the park. Muddy park. My clutz of a child, the bigger one, My Bubela, managed to step in dog poop. Ooops, I hear you say. Ooops, my arse, it managed to get onto the sole of his sock INSIDE his welly... have you ever!! Only my clutz of a son. Obviously, I did not attempt to wash the sock... we now have a spare white sports sock, brand new on, going in the spares pile.

*Wondering* Do you ever do that... get a hole in one sock and chuck it and keep the other one just in case you could team it with the partner of a potential sock with a hole in? *hmm, just wondering whether its just me that has a pointless sock collection going on*

This dress is adorable! I have a 5 month old little girl and I think it would look great on her this spring. I'll be shopping! Thanks! - Nicole from

Hi Cuz,

No sock is ever unwanted or unmated round ours.

If you ever get sick of sewing gorgeous dresses, try one of these!


PS must be some BIG DOGS in your 'hood....

Hi Fiona... Estelle is my favourite, thanks for the link!!

Big dogs, no, just inconsiderate people.

Another lovely dress. I like every single one that you have made and I just love the fabrics that you choose. Where do you buy these lovely fabrics?

Um, I made my son wear his sock with a hole in it yesterday...

The dresses you've been making are so sweet.

I certainly seem to have a lot of odd socks. My poor little girl has ofter worn odd sock much to my motehr-in-laws disaproval.

Thanks June - most of my fabrics come from America, their designers are so "in touch".

... think I'm going to delve into my sock collection and wear odd socks... to the suggestion of most of my readers. Thank you!!

I am so loving your dresses - sadly no use to me - only boys around here.

Just wanted to let you know that I have not dropped off the face of the planet and I would still love to buy some of your t shirts, but sadly my husband has just been made redundant so we are hoarding all our cash until he finds something else.

I'll be in touch though when things are sorted out.

Take care and keep on sewing your lovely things.
