Striped Geranium Dress

I think I'm going to call this her Circus dress.

I have a very nasty habit of sewing a number of items until I only have the very last thing to do like attach buttons or sew the hem and then get distracted and leave it on the pile for ages. This is what happened with this dress (and a few more still in the pile).

Black and White Little Camper Dress

I love making dresses and clothes for Freya, but I think sometimes I fall into the trap of always trying to save the things I make for her to wear for special occasions and not use the things I've made enough for everyday. That's where The Little Camper Dress pattern comes in.

Carousel Dress

Like the Oliver and S culottes pattern I bought their Carousel dress pattern as soon as it was released. I wasn't a huge fan of the ruffled hem version but when I saw the plain hem I was sold, and as Little Miss has a growing obsession with pockets I knew she'd like it.

Olivia Dress

Last year I sewed an Olivia Top pattern from Craftiness is not optional.  I liked it very much and meant to sew more but never got around to it.  When I saw this fabric in the shop though, I could straight away picture what I was going to make, et voila!

Lunch Box Culottes

Each season I find myself looking forward to the new Oliver and S patterns and this Fall range was no exception.  I knew there was a culottes pattern coming for the little people and I knew it would be one pattern I'd want to have a try of making for Freya.
