Blue Elephants on Parade

Effie and Ollie Heather Bailey's pattern is just too cute. I used her Nicey Jane fabric. I love this line.

I made one, then decided to make another.
At that point a third seemed appropriate.
Charge! They were feelin sassy....

My second skirt with the elastic smocked waist. This is the most comfortable skirt ever. EVER. It's cute too. I wrote out instructions that people can pull and try. (Proud of me Jennifer? Wait until you read it first....) I've put it in the shop for a few days and them I'm sending it on to Jessica.

I particulary love this fabric smocked, the lines make it so pretty.
I made another top like this in white, but have no photographs. Yesterday was so cold; we tried but we were shaking so much not one photo was in focus. We had snow, sleet, torrential downpours, sun and lightening storms. A typical April day in Germany!
