"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.”

A dress for Liliana

You never can tell how a project is going to turn out. It's part of what I enjoy about sewing...

Our little friend Liliana turned 2 last week. I originally made her a little skirt with red apples that I showed you in my last post, but I realised that it would be way too big for her- she is such a petite little thing. So I decided to keep that one for Gabby and make Liliana something different.

Once again I used the round-necked pattern by 'That darn kat' and some different apple fabric to make this dress. I bought a heap of this fabric when I saw it on special at Spotlight a while ago. I love the way it turned out. This dress is so handy because she will be able to wear it in Summer alone or in Winter with a skivvy and tights AND when it gets too short, she will be able to wear it as a top.

I'm loving my new overlocker- everything is just finished so much better. Here are some photos. The dress looks so much better on, but the model was not cooperative I'm afraid- sorry!

The finished product. Gorgeous fabric! Love the colours. 
Love the way this one turned out.

Off to church in a little apple skirt


  1. very cute, I can understand little models not co-operating, trying to get a pic of Bethy wearing something cute usually involves chasing her around the house with a camera :-)

  2. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see Lil wearing it
