Well Liss asked me earlier in the week, "When are you making winter stuff :P"

It has crossed my mind many times before and I have so many ideas in my head, but I am such a Spring/Summer person. They are such bright and bubbly seasons, so easy to create for, so easy to sew for. I am so not a winter person, I find it so hard to feel inspired.....

I have visions of a Cord Pinafore with cotton ruffles & pocket for Kyla, match it with a body suit with ruffle bottom. Brown cord, with pink or pink cord with a darker cotton. Some pants with a swing top that I can layer too....

Overalls are always a favourite in this house and I would love a brown pair for Kaleb, just need to work out a nice pattern.

So I need to find some inspiration, some fabric (of course :) ) and sometime. Worse case scenario I can just layer all these summer clothes that I have LOL.

CHALLENGE ~ Send me some inspiration for winter, a picture, a pattern, fabric selections and I might even whip something up for you!

    When my girls were smaller, I used to love little smock dresses like these teamed with a skivvy and tights - denim - they make gorgeous embellished denim these days or even tartan?

    These days I tend to go with a jumper-type dress (I've bought a few gymbo ones) with tights.. but I reckon you could sew some cute ones in fleece with little matching berets or something!?

    LOVE this:

    I should let you at my fabric stash - I have some gorgeous cord that I was planning to make something with.... dresses, overalls, pinnies, pants. One day I will have a space to sew in

    http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=26043&pid=620678 I think this would be gorgeous with a pair of tights, Kyla would be nice and warm, maybe not the right look for Kaleb though :)

    Liss I really like that last one you have put, would even look nice with a little frill on the bottom too (yes a current obsession).

    Raels I may have actually just brought another ummm 20 odd metres yesterday when shopping with Deanna - OPPS (pictures to follow when I am at home with 5 minutes to myself)

    Kat that is really nice too, although not entirely sure that I am ready to try to do hoodies yet LOL.

    Boy ideas, anyone?

    For Kaleb
