Verona dress and an oops

R needed new clothes for spring and summer. I would like to be able to make her entire wardrobe, however I realise that is not realistic at present. Having a baby got me out of my sewing routine. I am now embracing sewing a few seams at a time.

In a bid to get more organised I made a mental 'To sew this summer' list. As I was not sure what to make first I showed R a few fabrics I matched with patterns and asked what fabric she wanted me to use first. She picked Japanese cotton with birds and flowers printed on it. I thought that the Verona dress pattern was the perfect match for this fabric.

Everyday skirt in denim

I am a sewaholic. When I don't get to sew for a period of time my eye begins to twitch. OK, not literally, but I certainly feel something is missing. I don't have a lot of time to sew at present. In fact, I have not sewed for a few weeks after I finished a romper for my baby girl. I started feeling grumpy. Sleep deprivation only made things worse. I needed a fix. I needed to make something quick and easy, fun and wearable.

My mum gave me the Everyday skirt pattern as a Birthday present, and it ticked every box.

This is my precious little L at the age of five weeks. How cute does she look in her first mummy made item - the Jumpy Romper by Puperita!

Night and morning dresses

I have heard many times that sewing pajamas could be very rewarding because everyone loves comfy jammies, even the most picky little customers. Well, now I can second that! R had a few warm flannelette pajamas for winter, however she did not have anything suitable for spring. I knew that sewing time would be super limited (or non existent at all) once the new baby would arrive, so While she was sleeping I made a couple of 'night and morning dresses' for my sweet big girl.

Little Betty top and Serendipity trousers

I had a classic case of nesting before R was born. However my nesting instinct seemed to have been replaced with the sewing instinct before L entered the world. I was sewing for R like a woman possessed! I had a long list of things she needed (yep, actually needed), so naturally there was no better time to make them than just before having a new baby. Baby L arrived a little earlier than expected so I did not get to sew everything I was planning to. How inconsiderate of little L ;)

First up is this cute outfit.

Welcome baby

On the 1st of August we welcomed someone very special. Our baby girl L was born a little earlier than expected weighing 3.2 kg and measuring 47 cm long. Of course we think she is an absolute delight and are completely in love with her :)

Big sister R is adjusting well. She loves to check up on L. She has become a champion nappy change helper, however she is not too keen to hold her little sister just yet. That's OK. Our girls have plenty of time to get to know each other and to learn to appreciate having a sister.

For a good measure of an Awwww factor here is a photo of L's first bath at home. L was producing a relaxing yawn and I was lucky to capture R's expression watching her. Could she be more in awe?

Soon enough I will write about a few things I made for R before L was born, but for now I will go cuddle her, play with R, chill with my sweetest husband and have fun with my mum who is here visiting.

Have a great day friends.

Bumblebee dress for my niece

A few weeks ago we had very special visitors. My lovely sister in law, her partner and their most adorable little girl came for a visit. I got to cuddle my sweetest niece for the first time in about 6 months. She is such a delight! She is a happy and curious little girl, and her smile would melt anyone's heart. Needless to say everyone adores her.

Making things for little people is one of the ways I express how special they are to me. So I made the Bumblebee dress for my sweet niece.
