My lovely friend Mary emailed me last week and suggested I take part in a particular project, that for now at least I don't want to mention in any more detail...I probably will soon enough, I'm rubbish at secret keeping!
I wasn't sure at first, Mary has more faith in me than I do myself, but I thought I could do with the distraction right now...20 week anomoly scan looming, hense the rather hyper me posting nonsense three times a day, sorry 'bout that!
Anyway, back to the point. These little dresses are what's been distracting me, and no doubt still will for a few more days at least.
What started out as an abandoned pattern, is now (I think) a sweet little pattern that I do like and one I'm going to work on some more.
I'm calling it Flossie's Pinafore. I can't really imagine Florence being big enough to wear one, but as it's the only work that's really inspired me in a long while, I thought I'd name it in her honour.


Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. You should have faith in yourself - you are a great seamstress and designer!

    I love that you named it after Florence.

  3. I just adore pinnies, it's the staple of my little girl's wardrobe.
    Love the name.
    Your comming home outfit is just lovely, it just radiates love, looking forward to seeing the little one in it.
