Tulips and a Tea-Dress

My bargain of the day has to be these tulips from the local market. 500 stems for…….


I've shared them with Mom and G'ma and the house still looks like a florist must live here. Daresay left over from last Sunday, I don't suppose they'll last brilliantly but they look lovely for now.

I really had a fancy to make some clothes this week. I've not done any dressmaking for ages, but watching the Sewing Bee has given me the bug again. This little dress for Amelie went together easily in under an hour and a half on Friday night and she wore it on Saturday. Very satisfying!

I've made it using our Teacups fabric on cotton poplin which I love in the Indigo colourway. On the inside it's lined with some hand dyed indigo and I think with a little extra work it could be reversible. She seems to love it so next on my list is one in the cherry Cupcake fabric!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Laura Amelie is growing up so fast she is adorable. Her little slip is lovely. :)

  2. I would have jumped at those tulips, too. Who cares how long they last? They are gorgeous. I am guessing that a lot of photos were taken. Amelie is growing by leaps and bounds! She is so cute in her new dress with Bear. It will be adorable in the Cupcake fabric. Perhaps teacups on the bodice and cupcakes on the body of the dress? :) Have a wonderful week.

  3. So beautiful and looks just like her mommy can't wait to see the cup cake dress
