Today I have been making singlets, decorating them anyway.
I think this white one is my favourite. It's just a Bonds skinny strap singlet and I've sewn on some white lace around the neck and added a pale pink double bow-handstitched.
It is so simple yet so pretty and so cheap!
I really love this one too! Same singlet, blue ric rac around the neck and a cute old doily on the front from my stash. You just never know what to do with these things when you find them until moments like today!
Isn't it just gorgeous! I had pink and green ric rac but blue was perfect with the white. By the way I paid her a gold coin per outfit change for this photo shoot, the frangipani props were her creative input and made me smile when I saw her picking them.
3rd singlet and not happy anymore until I reminded her of the gold coin payment!
Strappy black singlet with cream broiderie lace trim sleeves and a cream double ribbon bow-handstitched. Lill didn't like this one so much and checked it out in the mirror- she came running out shocked "Mum one of the bows has fallen off!" Actually there was only 1, what do you think, does it need another bow on the other sleeve?
And lastly my little prince, "I want to be a model Mum"
I still haven't shown you all the sewing I did for myself pre Christmas. But here is some vintage goodness I found at Bargara on our camping holiday.
I love the orange and pink.
The doily has alot of work in it and a pretty soft orange crochet edge. Somehow I will make these two into something special, they go together nicely.
