Katie sent me 3 beautiful dresses (with some assistance from her mum who made one of them!). Katie has a lovely website called Kotori Kits which sells sewing kits which enable you to make things like dressing up costumes and bunting amongst other things. You can also find them on facebook here
The first dress was a gorgeous blue floral fabric with pink ties. Its so pretty.
I love the beads on the ties. I am definately going to do this on my next dress.
I love the fabric on this second dress too. Does anyone know what it is? I quite fancy a skirt made out of this myself. Lovely!
and Katies mum very kindly made a dress for a slightly older girl which is a great idea and something I hadn't really given much thought too. Its a great idea to make different sizes to make sure that every little girl gets a dress which fits. Its made from a pretty floral fabric and uses lace for the ties which is another really pretty idea.
The other package I received today was from Mary who has a lovely blog called Mary Poppins. Its one of my favourite blogs with so many pretty things to look at!
This pretty dress is made from a vintage pillowcase with red ties and and red appliqued heart.
Such pretty fabric
Mary also sells lots of pretty handmade things in her folksy shop here. Thanks guys. I really appreciate you making and sending your dresses.
I also wanted to share another photo of one of the dresses on my last post. I took a photo of the wrong side and missed this gorgeous detail. Its the little details like this that I find so inspiring so couldn't not share.
As we get more and more dresses in I'm wondering whether I should try and get a company to sponsor the postage. I was thinking of contacting some well known sewing machine manufacturers or even someone like John Lewis or Cath Kidston who might like the idea of what we are doing and pay for the postage and give it a bit of publicity. What do you think? Any thoughts or ideas welcome.
