I have really been enjoying some child-size dressmaking recently (more Ta-Dahs to come!) but what often takes me more time than the actual sewing is the pondering over fabric and trying to come up with pleasing combinations.
So I have been perusing some of my favourite online fabric stores to find pairs for some upcoming projects.
|Sketch - Aqua - Timeless Treasures from The Eternal Maker|
|Aqua Tiny Floral - Seaside - October Afternoon from The Eternal Maker|
...and this one...
|Kate Spain Honey Honey Lace in Violet from The Eclectic Maker|
|Kate Spain Honey Honey Wayside Garden in Violet from The Eclectic Maker|
...would make lovely 'Oliver & S Pinwheel Slip Dresses'
Whilst the next two I rather fancy as their 'Puppet Show Tunic and Shorts'...
(This pattern is only available as a digital download - anyone out there tried digital patterns and able to tell me whether this is easy enough to do?)
|Blossom Festival from M is for Make|
|Stitch Square in teal from M is for Make|
|Lecien 6mm dots in Lime from Celtic Fusion Fabrics|
|Natalie Lymer for Lecien Folk Tale Fawn from Celtic Fusion Fabrics|
Last but not least, this lovely pair would make a sweet seaside holiday dress, maybe the 'Ice Cream Dress'?
|Salt Water Bubble Shells in Aqua from The Village Haberdashery|
|Salt Water Floaties and Sinkies in Aqua from The Village Haberdashery|
What do you think?
