Summer dresses

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get some time in the sewing room uninterrupted, and these are what I created.

Some cute size one Summer dresses, which seems bizarre as we have just had the wettest July in over 20yrs. The above dress is my favourite, which is yours?

A Dancing Skirt

Last month I finished knitting Tessa's 'Dancing skirt' as she named it.  The pattern is from the very talented and prolific Elena called the Coral Skirt and is part of ebook  consisting of five skirts inspired by the sea called Itty Bitty Pool.
The photo above I just love, Tessa is so happy and the lighting is great. The skirt still has the under layer to be knitted on.

Now to talk about the yarn, which is from the very talented NZ indie dyer Hannah of Red Riding Hood Yarns, she has just celebrated two years in business and has done so a wonderful job.

I used one of Hannah's Petite sets which has 5 x 55gm 8ply Superwash wool in coordinating colours called 'Enchanted Garden'.
