Cut, cut, sew …

When temperatures are just above the freezing point for weeks here in Northern Germany, you light some candles and retreat to your creative space to cut & sew, cut & sew and dream about spring! The result is a handful of new clothes for Stella, a couple of things for Seda and half a dozen gifts! By the way, Seda took these pictures as I ‘styled’ my mini-model!! 🙂

I made this pillowtop-style dress for her big sister many times when she was the same age. Cute just as is or over jeans or leggins and even with a t-shirt for chilly summer afternoons…

But that’s just the beginning. With all the fabric shopping of the last weeks I got a few more ideas to put into reality.
