Autumn pinafore swap gifts received

The Autumn pinafore swap parcel from Anne in Germany arrived on Thursday, but it is only now, on Sunday evening, that I've finally found the time to take photos to share with you.

In addition to the pinafore set, Anne spoiled us with some lovely Halloween themed gifts which were greeted with delight by my younger girl.  Laura decided that she could wear the pinafore set first, as Miranda was still wearing the set which Anne didn't choose and Florence had just changed into the set I made as a complete copy of what I had sent to Anne.  So these photos show both the pinafore I received as well as a copy of the pinafore I sent.  Florence was delighted that the ribbon Anne used to tie around the clothes was a perfect colour match for her pinafore set.

Thank you Anne for such a lovely swap and all the additional goodies.  My girls have decided that as your Sasha and Gregor family are campaigning for bears that my needle had better get busy again...

Lovely - Lauras hair matches the autumn colours perfectly.

What a lovely swap to receive! Love all the little Sasha sized items!
All the girl's look lovely in their pinefores, did you have two of both of yours or did you make the copy of the one Anne chose after?
Loved Anne post of her girls standing in their towel waiting for the dress! :)

Hi Dee, I didn't have two of both of the ones I made, though I have cut out pattern pieces for the blouse in the fabric which she didn't choose (mainly because I was playing with fabric combinations). When she made the choice I was half way through making up a duplicate of the one she chose.
