This was my first attempt at drafting a pattern from scratch. My grandmother taught me the basics of pattern drafting a couple of summers ago – but with two young kids consuming all my waking (and sleeping!) hours it took me another year or so to find the time and head space to try it out. This is my attempt at a Raglan. It’s definitely not perfect but it has been much loved and worn by my little girl. I think my favourite thing about it is the striped pink neck line which was a gorgeous bias binding I sourced from The Remnant Warehouse. The fabric was cheap as chips and from Spotlight.
This is such an easy and sweet little dress to make and is so cool to wear. I’ve made a few versions of this dress and it has become a staple of my little girls summer wardrobe. The pattern is a hand-me-down from my Grandma’s vintage pattern stash and the fabric is from my local discount fabric store – The Remnant Warehouse.
My daughter wears this cute little play dress at least twice a week (as you can see by the stains at the bottom). It was simple and cheap to make – perfect for a time poor mum! The pattern is from a wonderful kids pattern book called Happy Homemade: Volume 2: Kids. The fabric was cheap shirting material from The Remnant Warehouse.
I made this cute polka dot skirt for my little girl. It was very quick and easy – took me less than 2 hours. The pattern was handed down to me from my Grandma and the fabric was in the bargain bin at my local fabric shop – The Remnant Warehouse
. The skirt was a hit – and so was the cake!
