starting small

I realised that if I was going to start sewing again I had to start with something small and this was just about right for me.
Dolly and dress available here.

Aaaaah, Clothkits. I remember it from the first time round in the 1970s; my daughter's wardrobe and toybox were full of Clothkits things! I think she still has the multi-coloured owl, complete with flapping wings . . .

Snap! My seven year old daughter and I made the version of this with the green dress over Christmas. We've also made her another dress having used the printed one as a template. Although I'm the right age (45) I never had any Clothkits stuff first time round - I think my mum probably would have thought them a bit 'hippyish' - so I'm getting a great deal of enjoyment from having an excuse to make them this time round.

Best wishes, Joan

What a lovely set of comments - thank you!

D - I'd love to see that owl. I noticed that Clothkits are making available some of their old toy kits so maybe the owl will turn up again.

Joan - Great minds. I copied the pattern too.

Liz - That Trellick Towers skirt - still waiting to see the F.O.
