adore dora's knickers


Evie seems to have sadly forgotten about Grandma Dora's dresses. Perhaps they were getting too tight or perhaps they are just too far at the back of the wardrobe to reach, so, for the time being are forgotten treasures. But, the great (and bad) thing about having two girls is the endless re-cycling and identical outfits I can dress Matilda in. These beautiful handmade knickers were made by Grandma Dora. The photo doesn't do the lace trim and neat stitching justice and as ever, I would love to have a go making a pair. I have fabric, I have the workroom, I have a fabulous old and borrowed sewing machine, but I just can't seem to find the uninterrupted time. But I will, I have to before Matilda starts getting as fashion fussy as her big sister.


  1. Hi Kate,
    I just love this photo of Matilda. She looks just like you, but with Stu's gorgeous brown eyes. She's very beautiful, and totally enchanting.
    Please keep writing your wonderful blogs. Lots of love, Mum, xxxxx

  2. Oh Kate, what beautiful photos of the girls. The last three have taken my breath away, they are just so enchanting. How I love, love, love, love, love them.
    All my love forever, Mum, xxxxx

  3. Not only do I love the photos of course, but I meant that I love, love, love, love, love the girls!!
