Dresses are coming along nicely...

The dress shape I have designed is constantly being adapted (with ideas coming to me in the night) and I can't tell you how many I have made this week when Theo sleeps or plays on her own. I've realised this is such a good time as she will shortly start to crawl - so that will be it!!!

I have made two in this fabric with the shape slowly changing. I felt it gaped too much at the back at the bottom and my last design has it fully covered at the back - bloomers optional!

They just look so great with little shirts, bloomers, jeans, long sleeved tops, etc. I'm actually wondering if I can source some groovy long & short sleeved tees and leggings to sell online with the dresses... hmm... Where to start looking? I'd love to have a complete 'look' as an option.

Pants will also be coming soon for the little boys out there who never get a look-in fashion-wise.

Some of the many dresses I have been making this week. All are reversible with vintage buttons either side. The gingham dress at the back has a cute pocket on the front.

These look very cute! I think the bloomers are a must, nothing worse that a nappy showing under a cute dress. Theo is adorable too!

Just not sure I will be making them!!! But they are easy to pick up.
