Milly's new top!

I have rediscovered the joys of sewing clothes for the girls! It is just too hot to sew quilts here at the moment, I'm looking for something quick and easy to satisfy the sewing bug. I have made this style of top several times before, the last time here. She still wears this one although its nearly a year old, fits her nicely now. Funnily enough whenever Daz dresses the girls, he always picks out that top.

So this was just some cheap cotton from Spotlight, thought it would look cute with denim shorts. White though! Dressing a 3 year old in white is just asking for trouble but it looks so crisp and cool. When I tried it on her for the hem, she looked down and said "Oh Mummy, its perfect! Thank you! Thank you!" Which made me laugh, is this the child I once had to bribe with a lollypop to get a photo taken of her wearing the latest item I had made?!

This is just an adorable top Helen! I love the style and the colours. I too cringe when I dress Jai in his white tops, but at least they look lovely for a few minutes lol

Love the Rottnest photos - the colour of the water is amazing!

And that top is very cute and very chic. I made a white dress for Rom - she keeps it amazingly clean!

That top is just much too cute! And as for the color -- well, that's what stain removers are for. It's perfect for the summer.
