All of the fantastic supportive comments that everybody left regarding my loss yesterday was so wonderful and I thank each and every one of you very, very much... It truly made yesterday a whole lot easier than it would of been without your support.....
While sorting though some old clothes of Connie's this morning I came across this little dress....
It fits Millie just perfect!!!! I can still remember when I made it for Connie and how thrilled I was at the end result.... I used recycled fabric and thrifted lace. The buttons down the back were also re-purposed from an old blouse of mine... I really loved this dress!!!
I've decided that I want to make more of these little dresses using recycled/re-purposed materials and am now searching for the pattern that I drafted up 3 years ago...
I think from memory I just made it up as I went along but wrote down some notes for future reference, too bad I can't find those notes right now... LOL!!! Surely they're in amongst my mess, oops I mean 'studio', somewhere....
Take Care..... :)


  1. Friends always make the pain easier dont they. The little dress is very cute. I hope you find your notes so you can make some more, just perfect for this horrible hot weather.

  2. I am glad we could ease your pain a little .........hugs

    that dress is just gorgeous!!!

  3. V cute! Now, onto the many times have I come home to my babies massacred, usually after a late night when the foxes got home before me, but somethimes all gone before dark! I lose only a few now, my white ball of fluff ornamental dog is actually the best fox deterer ever, doesn't let them within coo-ee, but heaven help all those who choose not to be near the main shed!
    Feeling your pain! Tracey

  4. Cute dress Jodie.. I have a really cute pattern for a little girls dress that I've lost count how many times I've made it..Great little dress for our hot summers and it's reversible!! It's from a Womans Weekly magazine my mother in law gave me years ago.... Let me know if you'd like a copy.. it's very easy to make.

  5. ohhhh cutie mil-mil you totally rock your mama-made style.

  6. That is adorable! Now that I'm back in the states, I have my grandmother's sewing machine to use! I can't wait to go thrifting so I can make my little girl some cute dresses!

  7. She is growing up so fast! Gorgeous!
