A Second Octopus Dress

Dear Laura,






I am currently making some dog beds for little Chaika's brother and Aunt, and of course this meant trawling my favourite websites for material. Needless to say most of the material I order was not of course for the dogs, but for me. In this lovely batch was a wonderful octopus pattern from Cotton + Steel. I love their designs and I am completely obsessed with this one. I couldn't wait and immediately made it into a dress. I used every single scrap of material the cut outs for the arms were turned into pockets and the rest was just rectangles with darts to make the shape. I think I am going to get more and make some PJs and maybe a little matching dress for my niece. I would love to make clothes also for my nephew but I can't think of what little boys like to wear. I would love any suggestions you might have.

Lots of love

Annie

The Emerging Spring

Dear Laura,



It has been a while since I have written, it isn't because I haven't been creating like mad. In fact I have been going sewing crazy, however the weather has been so bitterly cold and snowy and generally unspring like that I haven't been able to put on my dresses to photograph them without freezing to death. But it seems from the pink tips I am seeing on the peach tree that spring might finally be emerging from the white barren landscape. I can't wait soon the leaves will unfurl and a sea of green will surround us again. Hopefully this also means I can show off my fabulous new octopus dress #2 too you very soon!

Lots of love and springy feelings and happy Easter weekend.

Annie
