One Thimble Issue 16 tour

It is time for One Thimble again. The 16th issue of the e-zine is already available in HERE and today I am bringing a bit of what's inside for you. I have sewn two patterns, both from Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns, and they are the Hally Casual Dress and the Triton Singlet as you can see in the picture below. 
Both patterns are meant to be a loose fit, and I liked that idea. My daughter fell between two sizes, 5 and 6 on the dress, and I went for the biggest as usual, clearly I should have gone a size down for a perfect fit, it looks a bit too loose on her but, eventually it will last longer. 

The detail on the top front bodice was what caught my attention. We didn't realise while taking these photos, and her hair is covering it in most, but I just loved that different touch.

Baby's first clothes pouch

Fiz a maior parte já à noite com pouquíssima luz por preguiça de mudar de sítio, até que eventualmente acabei por fazê-lo. No entanto, continuei a fazer e desfazer por mais um bocado. Aliás, se prestarem bem atenção ainda ficou um erro que a mim me salta logo à vista, mas que já não tive coragem de desmanchar depois de tudo. 
Well, it&…
