There are so many lovely versions of this pattern on Burdastyle (gathered dress with cap sleeves) that I really had to make one of my own. This floral sheet really emphasises the femininity of the …
Everything about this top is perfect! It is amazingly over-the-top, in a fantastic way. And that …
I love that print!
That is really cute! Now I want a Bridgette dress :) PS What is ponte de roma?
“Girls, girls, girls. You’re both such lovely girls. You’ll be sharing sugar in no time. Don’t fight. And if you do, fight nice…with pillows… and jim-jams.”
As the nights got cooler, it was …
What a beautiful dress. It is elegant in its simplicity. Well done!
Sweet…like peaches? Lol. Thank you :)
Thanks so much!
“Goin’ to the country, gonna pick a lot of peaches…”

That colour is fantastic! Love it.

Wow, that fabric is incredible! The colour just pops and it goes so well with your hair :)
Beautiful fabric and execution!
What a great pattern! And you made it up really well :)
So named as the fabric looks like it belongs on a sofa. I chose skirt J with its smaller pleats and less volume than the other skirt variations, but like all of them it has slash pockets; and yoke …
Is anyone else as enamoured with Peter Alexander sleepwear as I am? Their designs are fabulous and made with the softest of cottons and silks. So when I was in need of some flanny PJ pants for the …
