swap fun

Today was opening day for the kids clothing swap I organised with my sewing pals on essential baby. Here is Lottie wearing her lovely new dress made by Xena. Thank you so much Xena, we both love it! And look at all these extra goodies she packed as well. I am feeling very spoilt.



I gave a sneak peek a few weeks ago of what I was making for my partner and I am glad to say Karen was very happy with the outfit. I loved it so much I wanted to keep it myself, so maybe I will have to make another set just like it.

Lovely dress! But I can't get over how tall she is! She is really growing!

ohhh I love the little red riding hood cloak! We had one as children that was similar and it was much loved and very fondly remembered.

the dress Lottie is wearing is gorgeous. Love the stuff you have made too. It is times like this that I wish I had a girl to dress.

Aww such a sweet dress Xena - I too can't believe how tall Lottie is getting, as she had a haircut too?

I love the outfit you made Ingrid, the cape really is something very special!

Lottie looks so lovely in her new dress - she's quite the model now isn't she - posing very nicely.
Ingrid you truly made my day with the cape and dress, they are divine. Shame it was 30 degrees here today or I would have had them on her!
I will attempt to get a pic at some point though when the weather gets cooler.

Lovely pink dress for a lovely little girl, and some extra goodies for you too!. That cape and dress are just adorable Ingrid, can't wait to see G in them both.
