My Little Tulip

My girl is wearing a Tulip Dress, made from Nicole Mallalieu's new pattern. This dress is really sweet, with pleats on the front and back of the skirt, giving the dress its "tulip" shape.




The pattern is really detailed, with lots of techniques not often included in children's clothes. Nikki has done a brilliant job of explaining these techniques, together with step-by-step instructions, sewing tips and a heap of photos and diagrams.

Stay tuned to Nikki's blog for more info on when the 'Tulip Dress' pattern will be available.... it's very soon! And if you'd like to win a copy of her new pattern, Nikki's having a giveaway....

Isn't it lovely that you have one of each? You can enjoy the pretty things for your little girl and the blokey things for your little boy. That dress is really pretty.

What a sweet Petal! Very impressive Mrs Cardigan. She looks gorgeous; the dress is divine. And I can't comment on your backpack efforts below because with my inferior sewing skills my jaw is still on the floor.
