It is confirmed. The love for pockets is in my daughters' DNA.

You should have seen the excitement on Miss L's face when she discovered her Lil Critters overalls had five pockets! She instantly started putting her little hands in the pockets, one by one, giggling and repeating, 'Pockeeeeeets!'

Tiny mice and tiny bunnies

Sometimes simple is best.

BFFS dress in fleece

Puperita's BFFS dress pattern is designed for woven fabric. I loved a woven version I made for my little girlie a few months ago. I think this pattern works just as well in a knit.

Vintage style skirt and Brigitte top

A month ago I have finally become an Australian citizen. Such an important occasion called for a special outfit. Any sensible person would have bought something suitable. Me? I decided to sew for myself.

Waterfall raglans

I had a mental picture of a beautiful sibling photo-shoot to present the matching tops I made for the girlies a few weeks ago... This is the best we got! hahaha One day I may be able to share tastefully styled photos of cooperating models... Until then, buckle up and embrace the reality!

Juliette dress

When Suz from Sewpony and Jill from Kneesocks and Goldilocks introduced the Juliette dress and top pattern that they have been working on together, I knew I wanted to sew it. And I knew I wanted to hack it a little (although it seems I ended up hacking it considerably). The pattern is aimed at a beginner sewist. It is a cute simple A-line dress with rather charming details. It looks super sweet as is, and it can be easily customised.

Timpe Tee times two

The following images clearly demonstrate two things:

1) I am well and truly overdue for a haircut.
2) Boxy tops can work for me.

The Bellah blouse

It was love at first sight. Relaxed casual fit. Small pleats at shoulder seams. Slightly shaped silhouette. Subtle hi-low hem. The sleeve length, the neckline... The minute Annika showed a photo of the Bellah blouse pattern she was adding to her shop I knew I was going to sew it.

Alice top in blue voile

A few months ago I went to Spotlight and noticed this gorgeous textured voile in a stunning shade of blue.

Coffee + Thread tour: the Ania tunic

I love this girl, her happy smile, her zest for life... and her new tunic! It is the Ania tunic by Coffee + Thread.
