A Little Something

It is my sort-of-cousin's (mum's brother's wife's sister's daughter.. confusing I know) 1st birthday today! Yay for Lana! She had a lovely party last Saturday with lots of friends and family, and most importantly as Lana will agree, chocolate cake! :)
So I though I'd post a couple of pics of the little dress I made for her. Watcha think?
Lana's Sundress:
Made from Bianca's Bloem, in Plum on cream organic cotton/hemp blend,
with lace trim and ties.
(note the drawstring bag, made from some scrap Antique Keys fabric. More envirofriendly than wrapping paper - and reusable too!)

And one more - just coz Lara takes a great photo, and has lots of cute things hanging on her wall! Also for scale :)
Me retying the bows to make them pretty for the pictures...
Liz (Lana's mum) has promised a visit to the studio soon with Lana, so when that happens I'll post a pic of the little cutie, possibly in said dress!

Gorgeous! Can't wait to see it being modelled.

And there are lots of pretty things hanging on that wall - not least of which is that little bag...when you gonna have some of that and the Wren fabric in the shop?????? (no I am not stalking...well, maybe a little.) As I have decided to limit my fabric purchases this year to the Aussie fabric marfia ... so you gals have to update the shop so I can satisfy my fabric addiction!

Haha, don't worry Heids, I'm organising the pics for the shop now - we just got it back from being set this afternoon!!
And thanks for the vote of confidence, it means a lot to hear :)

What a sweet dress! I wrapped all my presents in loose pieces of fabric with ribbon to secure it. Don't people get so excited when something is wrapped in fabric? Can't wait to see her in that dress!

Your dress looks absolutely beautiful made in that fabric and I love the birthday fabric bag.
