Floral Daks

My sister gave me this 90's looking soft floral fabric in the holidays. I've been wanting to make Rosa some simple pants to "knock around in" as my mum would say. Mum helped me trace a pattern off some track pants with a low crotch and ....voila... here you have a pair of comfy harem pants or "poo catchers" as we called them in the 90's.

Vintage number for Lu Lu

Lucia's mum just sent this pic through having seen my blog post. Perfect attire for daisy chain making don't you think? She is such a sweet little poppet.

Wow! what a long bloggy break, not by choice just simply life getting in the way, the school holidays were so busy I only managed to sew a couple of things, my creative list is getting longer by the day........ I did manage to snap this little vintage number up at Vinnies while in Wagga. I had plans of recreating a more modern top but impatiently unpicking the collar ended in one big rip down the front.

So a skirt it is....... perfect fit for my God Daughter Lucia. Not bad for 2 bucks!
