McCalls 6015 - a quick distraction!

Rather than packing for holiday, the day before we were to leave (at the crack of dawn) I decided to make Sophie a new frock.

Mum had originally planned to knock this one up herself, but one because of one thing or another, never quite found the time. So whilst procrastinating about how many shorts we all needed I stumbled upon the pattern and fabric she had bought and off I went.

The McCall 6015 is a proper little girl's dress.

I went for the version with capped sleeves.

It was fairly straight forward although I'm not sure if I followed the instructions for hte zip and sleeves to the letter - however I'm pleased with the result!

And luckily the pretty dress managed to distract the waitresses from the havoc she caused at the pizza restaurant!

This Girl Is On Fire

A quick and easy make this one. As you know I'm an avid Pinterest-er and was particularly taken with this - I liked the words and colours - perfect for Sophie.

So I've taken it as inspiration and made my own felt version.

Its part of a mini gallery featuring a gorgeous print from Belle and Boo called Sophia and a great postcard I've picked up along the way.

The pictures look great next to the vintage wooden shelves I found on Ebay and have filled with Sophie's book and toys.
