Scarlet invited 4 of her friends to see the 10th anniversary show of Mamma Mia the musical at Star City here in Sydney.
We had a family BBQ afterwards.
Scarlet picked a Pink Paris Poodle theme.
I made her dress from some divine "Vintage Paris" fabric by Bebe using a vintage 1950's pattern she found in a thrift shop almost 2 years ago. She's been waiting till she was size 8 (the pattern size) to have it made up.
I had enough left over fabric to make Lulu a little dress/top too.
We used some other great Paris fabrics for the tablecloths - I'll be able to make these up in to some summer dresses.

- I am an Australian artist. I sold my first work when I lived in London just over 20 years ago. I have been exhibiting & selling since. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from RMIT in Melbourne where I majored in Painting & Film Making (animation). I love art & all things retro & vintage. I adore Blythe & my vintage Barbie dolls. I have 2 beautiful daughters - Scarlet Kiyoko Christine (8) & Talulah Kimiko Wendy (6). My more serious paintings are an attempt to find harmony between nature and man's impact upon it and a search to find beauty within the often harsh realities of life. I live on Sydney's Botany Bay. I am always saddened at the amount of rubbish I discover on our beautiful beaches. I collect this rubbish then embroider & stitch it on to my canvases. I like the idea of transforming something ugly in to something beautiful & new … my alchemy!
