Hey Frenchy

I cannot believe it has been three weeks since my last post. Now, don't go assuming that becuse there has been no blogging there has been no crafting. Quite to the contrary. I have been flat out with my new summer range and suppling an ever growing list of retailers. Flat out with summer sewing for the girls, a lot more than I normally sew. And flat out preparing for Kate's birthday party.

So, finally I post. Here is a little creation I made for Kate. These oh-so-comfy French inspired jeans and a little swing top from this Japanese book. I also used the pattern to create nighties for my girls, but I will post about those another time.



For the jeans, I just adapted her pajama pants pattern to give it a flat front and then based the silhouette on an existing pair of pants to create the lovey flare. A big hem at the bottom and oversized pockets at the back were a must. Kate loves these jeans, becuase they are so much more comfortable than her other pairs.

I find this outfit totatlly irresistable when teamed with her dotty mary janes, red cotton cardi and polka dot bow. Perfect for spring.

I ditto the jeans love. Must ask - where did you get the denim - it looks a little lighter than normal, which is something I've been looking for. Let me know when you get the chance. Victoria
