Grey-Green Party Dress

This is the first dress I have made since Casper was born. The bodice is made from a hugely modified vintage pattern and the skirt is just  gathered. I used a really light printed cotton and hemmed it with orange velvet ribbon. The belt is this bright red elastic that has been kicking around for a while. Somehow it just showed up at the perfect moment and ended up as a belt.
The buttons are pearly pink and that's Casper in my arms with one shoe on and one shoe off.

Casper's First Cords

I whipped these up the other morning with powder blue corduroy. They have embroidered dogs on the cuffs and a button for easy nappy changing. Socks courtesy of Laura Spelbrink. Photos by Steve.

Grey Booties

I made these when I was 17 for Studio Arts, they're a little too big for Casper at the moment, I guess my gauge was out! They are pure merino wool.

Flip Doll

I made this rabbit doll in Montreal from an old gingham skirt and some fabric from my friend, Eloise's dress.
I made the pattern up, it's the same as the other rabbits that I posted a while ago but joined at the waist. One is happy and the other one is crying. I have a flip doll that was my auntie's that is Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma and The Wolf all together, which gave me the idea to make this one.

Bed Sheet Clothes

I made this shirt for Steve to wear to my Dad's opening a few months ago. The fabric is a bed sheet and the buttons are plastic amazing square ones.

The picture below is of a maternity dress I made from another bedsheet. The collar is detachable and I use it as a breastfeeding dress now.
