I can not complain about Sydney weather right now. We have had some magical days recently - no longer hot, but brilliant sunshine and the most lovely hint of Autumn. My thoughts about sewing though have turned to corduroy and denim - winter stables for my girls. I do love making them winter clothes but there is something really special about the gloriously bright, happy prints of spring and summer. I miss them in the cooler months. So I thought I would squeeze just one more Spring dress in! It is cheating a little because it won't be worn until our Southern Hemisphere Spring later in the year.
It is a gift for a little friend of Will's who turns one next week. I know Will is much too young to have any little friends, but Bianca is as close as you can get. They share a birthday. Bianca's Mum and I shared an obstetrician and we shared (not quite at the same time!) an operating theatre for our caesarians. I was being wheeled out of the operating theatre having just delivered Will and Bianca's Mum was being wheeled in. Will is 45min older than Bianca. Bianca is my sister in law's brother's daughter - a little complicated there I know!! I imagine them many years from now, still being each others friends, maybe even helping each other out if they don't have that sometimes elusive date for their end of school formals!!
And if I want to satisfy my hunger for Spring sewing, I find there is no better project than a little girls dress.
Some very pretty floral material and a few inverted pleats........
Happy Birthday little Bianca for next Friday!!
