There’s so many times I’ve meant to get photos of Elsa wearing her new clothes and just haven’t managed it but today we had a photo shoot and caught up on some recent makes.
First up there’s the new Elodie:
This was so much fun. I love the way the photos reflect her whimsy and humour. She is such a quirky, fun character.
Here’s the recent Halima:
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed making them.
I’ve been totally in love with this dress from when it was first announced at Farbenmix. I couldn’t wait until summer to sew it up for Elsa. I just had to get it out of my system before I could sensibly move on to planning her summer wardrobe as every fabric I looked at was a potential Halima.
I eventually plumped for a really beautiful Stenzo red poplin with big white dots that I bought from Crafty Mamas in Australia on sale. Wow. Some of the most lovely fabric I have ever sewn with.
I teamed it with my precious leftovers of Riley Blake’s Sugar and spice and some Spotlight turquoise gingham. The reds are a perfect match. I’m only sad such a little amount peeps out.
She hasn’t even tried this one on yet but I’ll try to catch some photos when she does.
