Year of the Monkey

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone:) Wishing you much happiness, good luck and good health for the days ahead.

Of course, I had to wear red for Chinese New Year's Eve dinner last night.

I sewed a dress using Tilly and the Button's Bettine pattern. Of course, I made the little one a skirt using the same fabric and using the ClĂ©mence pattern from Tilly's book (which I've blogged about when I just got into sewing here.) My daughter was wearing it with ballet leotards because she had dance class before the dinner. (I also sewed the leotards using a Jalie pattern.)

I made the mistake of making the wrong size because I'm an idiot,  but I made it fit and I love it:) I'll be making more of this for sure!
On me: Bettine dress worn with no-name leggings and Joe's Jeans booties; On the little one:Jalie ballet leotards and Clémence skirt with tights and her much-loved heeled shoes



And yes, it's still cold over here but we were out for just a few minutes. We're masters of quick photo shoots in our house....mwahaha!

Dinner last night...I'm still full!
Kung hei fat choi, peeps!
