"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson

Oh I love this one!

Experimenting with new patterns has to be my new favourite thing! I love how you can just browse patterns online, choose one, pay for it, download it and start sewing straight away. This is what I did with this little number-  a cute pattern by 'That darn cat'. I really enjoyed sewing this one. I bought the butterfly fabric from Pink chalk fabrics for about $4.50 a yard (bargain!!) and only used half a yard to make the dress! The spots are another Michael Miller wonder. I really am trying to move away from spots. I love them so much and they seem to work with everything. I forced myself to buy some stripy fabric yesterday so stay tuned for something different. The big buttons on this dress are from 'Sew Beautiful' in Springwood. Chunky buttons have to be another favourite of mine! Here it is.


  1. pretty dress for a pretty girl :-)

  2. Love the fabric and what a great pattern.

  3. Soooo cute. If I ever have a little girl I'm copying this idea : )
