New Business, New Friends ...





I have been busy for a wee while, very much enjoying a new direction in life, making modest clothing for (at present) little girls. It came about from a chat group of several homeschooling mums who were all complaining that it was hard to find decent well-made clothes for their children - there is plenty of "tarty" stuff around, or clothes with revolting logos on, but not a lot of nice traditional, well-made stuff available. So I invested in an overlocker, and got sewing. It's been fun, and hasn't turned into a sweat-shop (yet!). The business is dedicated to Madame Martin, Therese's mum, since she worked from home too.






In the meantime I also managed to make a few items of clothing for some new friends I've made - but, as we are constantly being taught in the spiritual life, we must not cling to our friendships too much, and have to follow the path of detachment (and, the Good Lord knows, we've been trying to afford a detached house for years, but he's not giving one to us .. hmmm, but, digressions aside) so I needs must send my little friends on to the Sisters of the Gospel of Life in time for Christmas, so that others may benefit from their friendship, and have hours of fun dressing and undressing them ...






















By the way, if anyone fancies the dress at the top - it fits an 18 month to 2 yr old - it's waiting to be bought!

These are precious and a very neat idea these days! I would have loved to have found lots of little dresses like these when I was homeschooling the girls year ago. One Easter, I made them all a matching dress similar to the green one you have posted...except they each had a different pastel color. I had never sewn in my life! I was so proud of them that day and how cute they all looked, only you should have seen my handiwork on the inside! Was it a HOOT! Still, I treasure that time, to this day. Enjoy! Oh, and if I had a little girl now....
I'd order! :)

Thanks for your kind comments, ladies! I only wish I had a few little girls to put the dresses on too...ah well, it wasn't meant to be.
