I also have a ball of 4 ply cotton in Cerise which I plan to make a traditional matinee jacket with, probably using a pattern from this book that I purchased on our recent holiday. I think the traditional design in a modern colour and yarn will be lovely for little miss to wear in winter. It's also an easy way to extend the wear of many of the dresses we have, just add tights and a cardi for cooler weather.

I should be sewing...
With my first markets fast approaching, I should be sewing or listing items in my empty shop, but instead I'm crocheting for my little girl. I finished this adorable bolero last night - how cute is my model???After the success of my first little cardi, I purchased some lovely yarn from the Bendigo Woolen Mills. This bolero is made from luxury 4 ply baby wool in purple storm. I used a pattern from this Cleckheaton book, making the bolero design with a simple picot edge, which I slightly modified to produce a frillier edge.
