New Summer Hats coming to Silly Gilly soon!

I've been very lucky this week and had beautiful sun streaming into my studio, combined with the time and opportunity to sew like crazy! I am working very studiously on getting more summer hats ready for the Silly Gilly store. Here is a sneak peek of a couple of girls hats waiting for some final embellishments...

So I must off and keep up the hard work. Well, not before I show you a recent find at an op shop for my daughter. I'm thinking this little dress may have been made in the 60's. It's handmade and fits her perfectly at the moment, but not for long! Aren't the little dogs on the hemline just so cute! It's interspersed with little flower bunches and the smocking on the bodice is in great condition. I nearly fell over when I saw the price - $1. Have a great week all!
