Martha's new dress

Hello!
I have a new hobby, from cushion maker to dress maker. My muse Martha, my best friend Kathryn's little girl. Martha is two, she's cute as a button and knows how to rock a vintage dress! Now when I see vintage fabric I'm thinking "Oooo that would make a really cute dress for Martha"
 To make the dress, I drew a simple pattern onto newspaper, cut it out of the fabric and sewed it back up....
Dress Number 1
Dress Number 2

Dress Number 3
Dress Number 4
Fabric given to be by a Cathy a friend of Kathryn, check out her lovely blog Jack's Paper Moon

Nearly a dress for everyday of the week! Time for a little fashion shoot! Martha's used to being in front of the camera, her mummy Kathryn is a photographer check out her lovely Blog Little Red Rooster

So Cute!! I don't know which one I like best!
Time to make myself something else to wear!

Hope you're all having a lovely week! I'm loving my time off work, baking, sewing, crafting, running, day trips : )

  1. Oh these are adorable - I'm jealous of all of them! I've always thought if I ever have kids they'll be dressed in a lot of homemade/vintage-y clothes like these. It'd be so kitschy to make matching outfits too. Plus when they're so little you can make an outfit and accessories out of a pillowcase.

    Martha is such a cutie too - and definitely not camera-shy!

  7. I love the mod look of the 1st & 4th dresses. She looks like she's about to get down to Dance to the Music or some other 1960s song :)
