Torturing the wee one....

A spring Dress

Last week Heather Ross' new book Weekend Sewing arrived in my mail.........


What a yummy bunch of photos to drool over. Lots of simple yet beautiful projects to try. Smocking in particular has always been intriguing to me, and there is a fabulous simple sun dress with a smocked top in this book.

Miss 6 approved of some fun fabric by Alexander Henry for the dress and I sewed the dress up over little 30 minute snippets on Sunday and Monday. (when the wee on was busy with playing outside or hanging out with Daddo!) It took under 2 hours..... and that included making the matching head band.... girls must have accessories! It was so simple and came out oh so sweet :) Now Miss 10 would also like one..... of course :)

I emailed Miss Heather Ross to ask to share photos of her new line with you all, and she responded herself, how cool is that? So , with her permission, here are some samples of the new KOKKA line due out soon. You can check her blog for updates on when it will be available in the U.S. It is so dreamy..... love it! (especially the blue & green color combination, yum)
