Christmas Dress 2020

Every year I make at least one formal style dress.

 Originally I planned to make this dress for Adara but she got busy with Uni (her final year) so Bianca stepped in to model for me 💓

course Bianca is extremely she 😂😂😂

The Lana is a beautiful dress with plenty of options.

This is the shorter length there is also a floor length option.

I also went with the zipper option, because it is a stretch dress there is an option for no zipper.
I made this Lana using stretch cotton sateen from Spotlight so it doesn't have a huge amount of stretch so required the zipper.

As you can see from the photos Bianca was happy in the dress, however Adara has seen it and has made it clear it is hers lol.

Sunflower Love

Rebecca Page has done it again
The Open Back Blouse

This top has the most beautiful puff sleeves 
I used a linen blend I picked up from Spotlight 
(on the discount table 😍) 
it had plenty of structure to really puff them out.

The back is also a huge wow! 

It is very open, to really show off your back. 

It does up with a tie 

the pattern suggests tying a bow 

but we love it with just a knot.

The sleeves are not just puffy the also have these awesome, 

very in cuffs, with button loops.

The top comes with 2 necklines. 
This is the v neck but there is also a high neck version. 
When you have a lovely collar bone like Bianca 
you like to show it off.

I think I will make the next one in a  rayon 
so it has a softer puff.

Here is the link for the pattern if you would like to try it

More fun with Rebecca Page patterns this month 💓
and a new model Miss T

Miss T is wearing the brand new Wrap Trousers (child size 12)

We matched the pants with a Chloe top (Ladies xxs)

double layer and double straps

Miss T was great at doing all the mandatory shots, but then we got to play with her talents 

one, two, three


one extremely flexible model 😍

Definitely a funky set 💓💓💓

Sleepy Time

The day has arrived when I can share this amazing new sleep set I made Bianca 💓💓💓

There are 3 patterns in this gorgeous set

Everything about these pieces screams luxury and femininity 

The robe is made from a very light rayon with deluxe satin at the neckline and for the sash.

I used Deluxe Satin for the camisole and the pants

The trim is an ivory embroided lace

The pants have side seam pockets!!!!

I have had an extremely hard time getting Bianca to take it off since I finished it.
She even wore it in a short film about her dancing and testimony of God 

The whole set is on sale for a limited time 

if you buy all three you can 10 % off by using the code bundlex3

This has got to be the most beautiful thing I may have ever sewn 💓💓💓

Not quite Summer

Rebbeca Page has done it again with a fabulous new summer sew


This top is super quick to sew and barely uses any fabric 💓

There are a few different options available. 
Sizes available from Ladies XXS - 5XL, Kids 12m-12yrs, Adara is wearing Ladies size XXS

The top can be made with no flounce, single flounce or double flouce

Adara is wearing the single flounce

The flounce doesn't quite go all the way around back, giving a nice line in the back and all the volume at the front 😉

There is also a halter strap option, which I did add to this top

But Adara opted not to wear it and tied it in a little bow at the front.

Adara's top is made from a printed poplin I purchased at Spotlight
I think my next one will be made in a rayon for an even floatier looking flounce 😀

Now it is the middle of winter here in Australia and while it doesn't get super cold where we live I was very impressed with Adara's ability to not look cold, but with that said I still have to include the "FUN" photos 😂

 The pattern is available over on the Rebecca Page website, click the links below to grab your copy

A Day to Remember

Bianca is home from the USA and Adara came over for a little family time, the sun was shining 
 and so of course I made them do a photo shoot lol

These shorts are stunning and both girls adore them. 
They have an invisible zipper down the back seam so you can get that perfect fit 💓

Both the girls are used to modelling for me

But they don't do it together very often.

I think it's because they have very different tastes and personalities.

Adara is a little more chill but likes to go with quite bold prints. 
These short are made from a printed cotton sateen I bought from Spotlight.

Bianca on the other hand has a larger than life personality but will use pick more subdued prints

Bianca's shorts were also made from a printed cotton sateen I picked up in Spotlight

Both girls are wearing the same size but because Adara is so little I had to take almost 5cms off the bottom of them.

They had so much fun trying to work out what to do.

Bianca wanting to jump and lift each other up and

Adara being like"yeah I'm not doing that"

With the difference in artistic interpretation of "just be yourself" I ended up getting some great photos of each of them on their own

but the ones of them together are what make the day worth remembering 💓💓💓

You can grab a copy of the shorts pattern but clicking on the links below
