At the weekend I cut out the pattern pieces for sewing my first Sasha dress. This was from 'Grandmas Patterns for Sasha - 3 pretty dresses' and I chose the drop waist dress with a full gathered skirt. The material was a remnant I had found some months ago at John Lewis (I love rummaging through the remnants box) and is a lovely fine flower print, perfect scale for dolls clothes. At the same time I cut out another dress from the same set of patterns for my Palitoy Susie - her body size is very similar in slimness to Sasha though her upper arms are a little wider. I've finished the dress for Florence first and this evening she modelled her new clothes in the garden with the spring flowers. She is wearing new black boots made by Lisa Hartley (who re-rooted Susie's hair 3 years ago).

I must go and sew for Susie - she needs her spring dress.
