ITS THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE

Right now I am sinking under the weight of work.
This morning I am coming up for air and thought I would show you a little snip of what I've been up to.
Little being the operative word. 
Two tiny tiny matching gowns, for the same film I was working on here.
The only measurement I was given was that the babies are 63 cm long.



Now its been over 6 years since I have regularly had my mitts on a baby of my own and the only one I have regular access to at the moment is somewhat longer than 63 cm and quite a well built little man.
After a certain amount of head scratching I remembered a box of old commercial patterns that I have had for ever. 
I only keep them out of sentimentality, they were all my Mum's old patterns, and the fact I love the illustrations on the covers. 
They are mainly outfits she made herself when she was young and in and amongst them are some she made for me when I was little.



Hurrah! 
Now at least I knew how big to make the armholes and neckline, or how long the sleeves should be.
The answer is much shorter than I would have made them!
I'm afraid yet again I can't show you the finished garment, but I can show you the tinniest collar pattern ever! And give you the solemn promise to share as soon as the film is out.



Hope it's not raining too much where you are. Have a lovely Sunday kids.
Love Nora xxx
