Baby clothes dans la Shoppe

Ach well – it’s the end of another week – and time for some more productivity photos. My Bernette sewing machine is on the blink again – so I am now permanently back to my trusty old 1970s Janome which I do so love (now I know how to use it properly).


I have made some little tops for the shop. They’re one-offs – made from my tiny wee pieces of babycord I got from my Liberty man. I only just managed to squeeze each little top into the fabric – although there is a bit left for a pencil case or two.


They are lovely summer mini dresses – tops really – they will be so cute avec bikini in summer – but Astrid also looks terribly sweet with hers on over a merino top. That’s a photo for another day.


She was such a good wee model – she really enjoyed crawling around on a bit of calico, chasing the world. Even if she does look rather bored here. Don’t worry, that’s just her special distant model pose.


Oh, and just in case you’re not sure how to get to the shop. It’s this a way.

And here’s a wee outfit I made for Astrid too – she looks like a little wizard in it! Note the lining on the pants – it’s the electric garden from an earlier post this week.


And now my eyes fail me so I’m off for a(nother) glass of sav, to cook the butterfly lamb from the Pyrenees deli on the barbeque and to steam some lovely fresh Spargel (asparagus). Yum.

    I’ve commented over on flickr too- these tops are beautiful! If only I had a little girl… I really don’t think BabyC could do them justice!

    All the tops are beautiful, but I am so in love with the fabric in the second picture. Gorgeous!

    *wishes I had a daughter to buy these for*

    She is so sweet. My youngest just turned two and I already seem to miss the little crawling around roly-poly baby phase. Too much. The clothes are fantastic as well, you are very talented. I am enjoying visiting your site. Thanks.

    astrid is really rocking her model poses (and expression!) — shame on you for exploiting your child’s beauty! ;^)

    So cute! That’s a really nice design and I love all the fabrics. Perhaps Astrid has a future in fashion? Supermodel maybe? 😉
