Mandy offered to make Xander a pair of dungerees. I gave her free reign when it came to fabric she used and she selected a fun red dinosaur corduroy (which I loved!)
They are beautifully lined, with a light blue cotton which is soft on baby's skin and is well coordinated with the red fabric. Mandy selected these fun green buttons to fasten up the dungerees!
Xander wore these dungerees to a family party and everyone commented on how fabulous they were. Many people asked where I got them from and when I announced they were handmade they were all very impressed!! I think you'll agree he looks super cute in them!
Mandy sent a pinafore dress for Ellie. I think you'll agree the fabric used is absolutely gorgeous! Ellie's mum Kirsty loved the traditional design of this dress. Again Mandy lined the dress beautifully and as a result this dress could be worn without a vest in warm weather but would look equally beautiful with a vest and tights. Look how gorgeous Ellie is in her beautiful dress!
