A local find

We found some really cute Andover fabrics locally here in Brisbane yesterday!  That’s pretty rare, I usually have most of my stuff sent from the USA, costing me a small fortune in shipping costs.  I found a few funky stripes for boys, then a whole set of an adorable collection for girls.  I’ve just prewashed it all to make a dress for Alexandra as I have a pattern which needs testing – plus I’m not sure whether other people will like it as much as I do!  I also found some top quality elastic for a fantastic price, so it was a good day.

I can’t wait until the weather warms up a bit more so she can start to wear all these dresses and skirts.  I did go searching for leggings the other day so she could wear them now, but couldn’t find anything decent.  This summer is going to be skirts and dresses only as we need to get this toilet training happening, so need to make it as easy as possible!

There are still a few errors in the webstore and I haven’t heard back from the designers which is a bit annoying.

Anyway, here are the skirts in progress.

  1. Oh I can’t wait to see your new summer range. I love the little one with the bright pink trim.

    P.S. I also love the little blue yoyo dress in your flickr photos – hope you plan on stocking these!
