I sometimes wonder what people must think when they pass by my house....especially the day after a theatre production!

Well it's not quite summer yet...and even a little too cold for spring, so I've been cheering myself up with lots of pretty bright fabrics! This little dress has been made from left over fabrics from another project, the striped fabric works really well with just a little plain contrast.

This has to be my favourite dress so far. It's made in a beautiful watercolour fabric over a white base. The fitted bodice has a small sweetheart neckline and the very full skirt has a fluted, petal front edge with a pretty button trimmed rosette to finish.

Another recycled denim skirt. This time I added a pleated trim and big fabric ties in a faux patchwork shamrocks printed cotton. It would make a lovely themed skirt to wear at a St Patrick's day celebration.

I had just enough of this beautiful fairy fabric to make this little dress. I designed it as a sundress style (though you could use it over a t shirt or long sleeved top) with a buttoned back and stretchy straps for comfort.
I don't expect to keep this one for long!

ATTENTION MUMS...I need a little girl model for my new childrens' party dresses and costume samples, she needs to be under 6 years and happy to be photographed in lots of different outfits. You would need to be available for one afternoon and be able to travel to me (Barton on Humber area)...and as a thank you, she will be allowed to take home a free dress of her choice from the collection! Contact me with your email address for more info.

I'm fed up with the winter weather so I decided to brighten things up with some spring and summer projects...starting with this cute little girls' outfit. It's actually quite a simple style to make, but the spots and stripes look really effective!
I'm moving on to the next spring project...and will be taking them to the Artisans in Action demonstration and craft fair at the Waters' Edge Visitor Centre, Barton on Humber on the 10th and 11th March...if you can't make it there have a look in my FOLKSY shop for more lovely spring outfits!

This outfit was a custom make for a Mother of the Bride winter wedding. The customer was a larger lady and had a very definite idea on her design and colour scheme..she brought her fabrics to me...another learning curve as it was quite a challenge to put a stretchy, heavy lace overlay over a lightweight slippery silky fabric! Unfortunately the biggest dress form I have was still several sizes too small even at it's largest, so she needed more fittings than usual (and it actually looked nicer on her than in these photos). She was pleased with the end result, though it's not one I would want to repeat in a hurry!
