Mom & Daughter Dress II: The Reveal

Dad was home today. It was his day off. The only one he has in the week. And having him around means, oportunity to take some nice shoots of us two together. 

So after lunch we went out, letting the warm sun shine down on us. G. fell asleep on our way to a small village by the sea nearby. But, as she woke up we drove to the next town. They have an old castle there, with a beautiful garden. Before G. we used to go there a lot to take some nice shoots... of me! =) Mostly when I had any new clothes made. 
She wasn't really in the mood for photos when we got there. I guess she didn't sleep enough, though she woke up on her own. But then I walked her around and she did appreciate the flowers and leaves. She couldn't stop staring. 

I just LOVE the way the dress looks on her with the hat also. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out as I had imagined, but it was quite fine... not perfect though, not for me at least... 
I guess it's not very clear on these photos, but her dress folds over in the front, and has a big black botton on the left side... I liked the detail. Do you?
She can't stand still on her own feet yet... my little 7 month old! =) So, I have to be there holding her in every single picture.

My dress was much simplier... sadly, none of us thought about taking a photo of the back of the dress =(
I guess, I have to train my photography planning ahead!!! So I won't miss any details... Still, today we worked according to miss G.'s mood... which wasn't her best at all... she looks happy on these though, doesn't she?

There's some of this fabric left, so maybe sooner or later I'll do something else to match. Right now I am busy trying to come up with G.'s Carnival Costume... it has a private story attached, I'll tell you more later... I love sewing for children... really!

  4. You both look fabulous together!!! You've cut your dress perfectly so the plaid comes to a point at the neckline. Thanks for linking up...

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.


I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.


So, the first thing you have to do is…

The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
