A Dress for a Little Girl

I'm still sewing madly, the machine hasn't had this big a work out in quite a while. All of my projects are still WIP but I should have more to show you on the weekend.



In the meantime, here is a sweet little dress that my girlfriend made. I ordered it for the daughter of my favourite-bag-girlfriend. Remember the one?



The dresses are all individuals and beautifuly made. They are available at Miko, so so sweet.



And of course, some ribbons to match.

I also had a wonderful day at the op shop the other day. I often marvel at the finds that Ingrid manages. It's not often I find such beauties, but the other day I was in luck.






An old basket (perfect for sewing supplies), a couple of notebook magazines, a table cloth, two lovely pieces of crystal and a much needed Wusthof carving fork. All for $10

I have plans to line the basket and the tablecloth will soon be an apron. Stay tuned!

I think I need to venture out in melbourne and find out where the good ones are because you've done well!
