More Summer Sewing....

This first pattern I found in a stash of patterns that my Mum gave me. To be honest I had no idea if they were hers or if they had been passed to her at some stage, but after showing her the finished product she assured me that she used this pattern to make a dress or two for my sisters and I. I was so excited when I pulled it out that it was actually a size 2.... perfect for Layla this summer! Fabric is from The Fabric Store again...





This top doesn't come up too well in the pictures, but it is based on pattern that I can't lay my hands on at the moment to give any details about.... yes the sewing room is still a mess....

LOVE the dress. I really need to get some blues on my girls this summer I think!

Meika, blue is not usually my 'thing' for Layla..... I am a big fan of pale pink. But I just thought this print would work well in this dress.
