Liberty Fabrics and Little girls!
What's not to love?
Alice Caroline's new book Sew Pretty for Little Girls is exactly that!
OK, So maybe I get a little sentimental, as I used to go to Liberty of London and buy tons of Liberty fabrics to make dresses for my daughter, when she was a wee slip of a thing...
Proof from when she was two!
( She's now in high school ...
Wait... What? )
So long are the days of pretty skirts, dollies and fluffy stuffed friends, so it's like a little dream for me to wander down the pages of this sweet book.
I had so much fun making things for my daughters room over the years, making skirts and dresses, and this book is making me look around to see if ANY of my friends still have young ones that I might spoil... ;-)
