Frida, oh how I love thee
I had high hopes for the Frida pattern by Modkid, and they certainly reached them! Having read reviews in Sew Hip and hearing lots of other great reviews and just perusing the pattern itself, it just looked so flawless and clear, and that is just what it was. An absolute delight to make with beautifully presented instructions. And to top it off, the fit is perfect, it's super sweet and Tully loves it!
I made this little number in a Michael Miller range. I loved the bird fabric and bought it with the idea to make "a" dress for Tully but then when I was trying to decide exactly what to use for Frida, it was the perfect choice. I think it has a mexican feel to it, and suits the style perfectly. I love that this is so bright and vibrant, it will be perfect for all the dancing in store next week when we head off to WOMAD, which I'm way too excited about!
I was thinking that it would be lovely to make this in actual Frida Kahlo material but it could be a bit much for a little girls dress, maybe? Although I have just found this Frida in spooflower, ohh too cute!
And now for the littlest misses birthday dress. Lesley asked for a piccie, so I thought I had actually put it on Sage to see that it fits. That's right Sage didn't even wear her birthday dress on her birthday and hasn't even tried it on yet. It was way hot 35 degrees on her big day and we spent the day at the beach and chilling and of course eating cake. I actually though it would be too big for her! Well it's not it fits her perfectly, maybe a bit long for the crawler but once she gets her balance it'll be perfect. Her latest very most favourite thing to do is swing, swing , swing. Oh what a delight it is, she cackles and squeals and just won't get out! I forgot to take a piccie with her matching polly dolly so those shots will come along soon.
Now it's time to sew for the little boy. Lach has a pair of shorts he doesn't like the fit of, so I'm gonna hack them up for some pants for my growing little guy, everything has become ankle basher over summer. Oh and summer, where did that go! I'm so sad that the cold weather is on the way, I love the sunshine.
