Baby Clothes

My niece turned one a couple of weeks ago and much to my sisters horror I made her a collection of Marni inspired outfits to celebrate the occasion.  My love of Marni is no secret and these shots are from the brilliant resort 2011 collection.

A strawberry blonde with pale skin like me I mixed together prints and textures in greenish tones.  They may never see the light of day so here are my favourites.  All of the fabrics came from Tessuti in Melbourne as did the Japanese pattern book; the printed bias binding was found at L'uccello.




  1. All completely gorgeous!!!! You make me want to have a baby so I can sew pretty little things like this :) So sweet!

  2. These clothes are so gorgeous that I would love them for myself. Your fabric selection is enviable! Lucky, lucky niece. Why doesn't your sister love them? Would she prefer pink?

    1. She would look adorable in pink but I was using up some left overs so it ended up being a pot luck mix up in green :-) Don't worry, I'll win her over!
