Polka dot Projects.......


This was a dress I made a couple of years ago for my middle daughter's birthday........I lined this dress in hot pink & for a novice seamstress it took me many fittings to get it right.

She picked the fabric & being the OCD freak that I am I bought 10 meters of this pure cotton fabric that was on sale for $2.00 a meter.

Recently my youngest wanted the same dress so I cut a smaller size & made it with an exposed side zipper.

Now it is a breeze to make this dress & it was done with only 1 fitting. I also have many projects to sew & thought I would use some of this fun fabric that I have so much of!


 I made this modern baby bib that is my own design.........for part of a shower gift....


this started out as a baby hat but I couldn't get the design I had in my head right so it turned into this mini drawstring bag to hold the little necessities.  I will be linking up to my fave parties!


Sew you later!
