Make It Perfect, Uptown Girl

.Sewing for Nancy.

Checking in to share some recently finished sewing projects. I made these for my niece, Nancy’s first birthday.
A teeny little Uptown Girl:
Reversible and made snuggly with a layer of quilt batting in between.

And here’s the busy little girl trying it on – she is super busy…I forgot how hard it is to get a photo of a toddling 1 year old!

I also made up a long-sleeve top and leggings set from Ottobre Spring 1/2011. The top is “White Rabbit” and leggings are called “Sortilege”.

The leggings have gathering at the bottom with a covering trim and buttons. Easy to sew and easy to wear!

.Serendipity – a new winter coat!.

Brrr…it’s cold!  Still plenty of time to get stuck into some Winter sewing and I’ve just finished up designing my latest pattern – a super trendy little girl’s coat:


Playing outside is only fun when you are warm and the Serendipity coat is designed to keep you warm – and looking good! 

Featuring cute pleat detail in the front and back, Serendipity is a stylish double-breasted coat with a sweet Peter Pan collar and side pockets to keep those little hands warm.
Serendipity is a gorgeous coat guaranteed to brighten up any drab, rainy day.
I thought it was about time to introduce a new girl’s winter coat/jacket to the Make It Perfect range. Serendipity is classy and sophisticated and most importantly – warm, warm, warm!  

Serendipity comes in two size ranges, catering for sizes 6 months to 10 years. You’ll find more information about Serendipity on the Make It Perfect website. If you are looking for a place to purchase a copy of the pattern for yourself, take a look at our stockists or ask your favourite store to order one in for you.

A massive THANKYOU to Makayla Graham Photography (blog here/facebook here) for the beautiful photos – she did an amazing job with them at our favourite funky farm and we were blessed with a small opening of clear weather on a super rainy day!  Thanks Makayla 🙂
