I have already shown this Mondrian dress that I made for my A Girl for All Time Sam before. Then I made another one. And here are a few photos of a fun photo shoot of two Sams in identical dresses! Both dresses are made from my own pattern inspired by the famous 1960s dress. […]
Today we woke up to -4C, the lowest we’ve had this winter so far. Still no snow but we’ve got ice! So, my three girls – Sam, Eileen and Caitriona – decided to do a bit of ice-skating on a pond… All knitted items were made by my mum, all sewn things – by me.
