Rainbow Raglan

Rainbow Raglan

img_7330This 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.

Spotty Dotty Play Dress

img_7332This 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.
