Puperita's Tiny Mice Dress

Ah Puperita! I love Annalisa's patterns so much, and have been meaning to post this dress for the longest time. It's such a sweet dress that I felt it deserved the spotlight.

Pattern Testing: Miss Polly by Sewpony Vintage

I don't know about you, but I've been meaning to start taking things a bit slower these days - at least on the sewing front. The list of things that I want to sew just keeps growing, and I find myself getting sidetracked by so many things that on most days it feels as though I am running around getting nothing done. And then I get overwhelmed by my list, so I have to tell myself to take a deep breath and do one thing at a time.

One of the things on my to-sew list is a pretty dress for my younger daughter. Big sister always seems to get all the new lovelies, and it just doesn't seem fair. So when I saw the Miss Polly dress, I knew it would be the perfect thing for her.

I have renamed the latest incarnation of this dress "The Heleena of Troy" dress for the little "war" it has caused between my girls. Why? Read on...

World Book Day Blog Tour

Although World Book Day was officially yesterday, March 3, I am posting today as part of the World Book Day Blog Tour hosted by Becki of Dobbins Bobbins. When she contacted me to participate in the tour, I was so happy! Reading and sewing? YES!

Pattern Testing: Elegance & Elephants Mori Dress

From the moment I saw Heidi Kettner's latest pattern for Elegance & Elephants, I was in love. You know, that fluttery, dancing through the meadow to the sound of birds chirping type of love.
