Oh me oh my!!

Look what the postie brought to my house ...

Putting time and effort into sewing an item for a swap is always a bit of a risk.

Will the person you sewed for like what you've made, will you receive a parcel at the end of it all and will you like what you have been sent?

The answer for me to that last question is a resounding YES!!!!

I was lucky enough to receive a parcel from the lovely Ingrid of Lottielulu and I have to say that when I saw her name on the parcel yesterday I did a small happy dance on my front porch!

Having seen the sneak peek she had on her blog I couldn't wait til this morning to open the parcel, and it is every bit as divine as I anticipated.

Tha cape is of the most delicious raspberry red baby-wale cord and is lined with soft velvet in a bright pink Oilily reprint, and it is teamed with a denim and pink/Oilily print reversible pini-style dress!

Keep in mind that Ingrid drafted her own pattern for the cape.

It has little slots for Miss G's hands to come through and shaped shoulders so it will sit just right.
Divine.

I want the weather to turn cold immediately so I can dress her in it!!

Thank you so much Ingrid - we feel very lucky to have a Lottielulu creation in Miss G's wardrobe and really appreciate the time and effort that has gone into it.

Thanks also for organising the swap - no mean feat I know. I will definitely be in for next year.

I must see if I can make one of these capes up for DD too. She will love it.
