Winter is Coming!

What little girl wouldn't love to wear this 'all-in-one' to keep her warm in the winter months ahead. Made of brushed cotton/viyella with embroidered flowers on the collars, wrist bands & both feet & with a wide panel of smocking it is a picture of delight. The ribbon ties at the ankle complete the perfect set for an outing. It has 3 buttons at the back for easy access..

The WOW Factor...

Adding extra detail into a design can give a garment that "WOW" factor very quickly. This is a bishop neckline with pearls added during the smocking process... once they are completed & the pleating threads removed, a small grub rose was added to the centre of each 'diamond' design. The short sleeves were also smocked.. a spectacular result for the finished item..

Two New Additions.

Children love to play "I Spy", & what better way than in this cot sized quilt. Using a darker green between all the animal & floral squares a child has hours of fun spotting different things. There are animals, birds & lots of variety in this one & it has been backed with a pretty Teddy Bear printed flanelette for warmth. So simple to make & very cosy for those cooler nights.

Perfect Pink Combination

Here is Luca in a white dupion silk with pink smocking & matching pink guipure lace set. Such a beautiful combination & very delicate & feminine. Did you know that silk is a natural fibre & therefore 'breathes'. It is cool in summer & warm in winter. Garments of silk should never be stored in plastic bags. An excellent method of storage is a clean white pillow case.

Specialty in Silk

For those who like a big "Wow" factor when wearing something totally unique, this little jacket will fit the bill. Made of gold & crimson brocaded fabric it is stunning & finished with matching dupion silk & fully lined. It was finished late last night so the gold chinese toggle for the front hasn't been added as yet but I think it will be the icing on the cake! What do you think?

Champagne Dupion & Guipure Laces - Great Combination

Here is the latest champagne coloured dupion silk with a rich guipure lace for the hemline - these sets are very popular for reborn babies in all sizes. The smocking was done in a matching DMC thread as the focus for this set was the hemline...

English Lace & Dupion Silk

Here is another set made of sage green dupion silk but this time I have used English Lace as the trimming. The smocking has tiny irridescent pearls around the neck & sleeves which brings out the colours even more. Luca is a perfect model! This set was purchased by a client in the UK.

Quilts, why not!!

This is a "Drunkards Path" pattern. Although I usually smock & sew clothing I have been know to do bed & cot quilts also. This top has laid in a cupboard for a few years & today was the day to finish it with a flanelette backing... I decided against hand quilting due to the time factor involved & our warmer climate in Queensland.

Something Different

For those of you who prefer something a little different in newborn clothing. This is made of 100% cotton with a pretty border of 'houses". The added cream laces on the sleeves, hemline& bloomers make it so feminine & cool in the hot weather. The red smocking brings out the red houses in the design beautifully.

Raven the Fairy

How do you like "Raven" the fairy baby? She has just had her fairy dress & bloomers made to suit her lovely garden green colouring..... The dress is smocked with gold thread & pearls. The hemline guipure lace was hand dyed by Carol of in colours to match the fabric which came from the USA. She even has a beautiful butterfly in her hair like all fairies !!

Hankie Jacket

Have you ever wondered what to do with all those pretty hankies when they are just too beautiful & lacey to use? ... Here is an excellent idea - crazy patchwork them into a jacket. This one fits size 3yrs & is fully lined & padded for warmth. There are lots of laces, fancy stitches & motifs embellishing the seams.
