Emily made her dress from New Look Pattern 6799 – View B (pink dress above) from a beautiful black brocade fabric. It features a fully lined bodice, faced collar, scooped armholes, darts on the bustline, a midriff panel and a softly gathered skirt. It also has a center back zip and two pearl buttons on the back neckline.

Sewing with my Granddaughter Poppy!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

I’m delighted to share with you some pictures of my sweet little granddaughter Poppy during her visit to Australia.

I was lucky to spend 3 wonderful weeks with my son and his family who flew from Zurich, Switzerland.

Poppy 3 years old, had her first sewing experience with me in Rosewood Cottage. She attended our Kids Sewing Club where she was in awe of all the girls and their creations and of course was instantly inspired to sew herself!

Check her out below using her wooden sewing machine and the delight on her face wearing her new Dr. Seuss dress!

“Grandma, sewing with you is SO exciting!”

“Yes Grandma, I think we fitted this dress to my size perfectly and I need to wear it straight away.”

“I can’t believe I made this dress myself! Can you?”
