They've named their new baby Isabella, a lovely, elegant name. I have yet to meet her--my family is in Manitoba--but I've seen pictures and Isabella is tiny and perfect and beautiful. It's been the slowest two days of my life, waiting to hold my niece for the first time, see her tiny little toes, hear her wee cry. I'll be home soon.
In the meantime, I'm dreaming of all the pretty little things I'll get to make for Isabella. Perhaps I'll start with this cute pattern from Oliver + S, maybe in this fabric? Or this dress in this fabric? Oliver + S has the most adorable patterns in the cutest packaging; the problem really is deciding which one to make first.
Hmm ... I'm starting to realise that the best way to outfit one's brand new niece is just to make all of the sweet dresses I want. I mean, I'm supposed to spoil her, right?
