Tiny frocks and more frocks!

Version 1
A tiny frock in cosy Vyella type fabric for baby L.
She thought it was lovely but just a tad too big across her chest so....
Here is
Version 2

Just a tiny bit smaller and with deep pink floral buttons and tiny free machined flowers.
I am sure baby L will quickly grow into Version 1 so nothing is wasted.
I have loads of fabric left and will probably make similar for  Annie's older grandees P & L.

Here are a few more frocks for the "Dress a girl around the world" scheme.
I think I have made 142 now.

They just need a few trimmings so I am taking them down to Annie's.

Adrian from Cari crafts has sent us another fab bag of tiny bits of ribbon/lace and trims so I shall choose a few bits and stitch them on later.
I know a few of you have been using Cari crafts since we blogged about them. If you need crafty bits and bobs then follow the link on my side bar. They have a good range and offer a very fast efficient service.

Right, must get back to my Christmas card making.
(Might blog them next week)
Have a great weekend.

Hi Jo. I'm just checking out your latest makes. Lexi will look a real poppet in those dresses so thanks for making them. I'm just removing a couple layers of dust before you get down here....we might find what we are looking for then :-)
See you later.

Hi Jo!

Two gorgeous dresses for your little grand niece! The fabric looks really beautiful.

And lots of rays of sunshine hanging there ready to head off to Africa, wonderful!

Have a super weekend!

Fabulous dresses for Lexi Jo - and my jaw dropped when you wrote that you'd made 142 dresses! Crumbs - you and Annie should get a medal for 'services to sewing' for making all these scrummy little dresses :) Di xx
