I am seriously loving the summer folky style trend of adding embroidery, ribbons, pom pom, ric rac, and basically any and every bit of embellishment you can find, to clothing this season. Boden has a really lovely selection of clothes which I put into a virtual basket before deciding to have a go at doing a version myself. My favourite piece was this skirt. The version I made cost about a third of the price of the original and was pretty simple to make. If you fancy making your own, here’s what you need. (Measurements and sizing are to fit a four year old).
Life in Pictures is our weekly mini-gallery of what our Little Buttons have been up to over the last seven days. We’ve had a REALLY exciting weekend… we’ll share all the details very soon, but for now here’s a little taster.
Ooh, we’ve got a really exciting weekend ahead of us – tonight we’re off to the MAD (Mums and Dads) Blog awards as finalists for best craft blog. We never get dressed up these days, so we’re very excited to get to wear fancy dresses and paint our nails. It’s also the first time we’ve left two of our Buttons for a night away so it’s exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time!
