...french dresses for summer ...

...we have booked a little summer hiatus
...a little french week away
...i think we *peaked* a little early with our summer holiday plans
...we have had a few *escapes* abroad already
...so this was a last minute...*what-the-hell* lets just go again decision

...you see you just can't make these kinda decisions in australia
...from our lovely beach house in sydney, it takes over an hour just to get to the airport
...on a really GOOD traffic-free day
...so we still get a thrill from making quick decisions that lead to time *abroad*

...so thinking all things french
...i have gone *mad* with my piles of french and vintage fabrics
...& am finishing orders for..gorgeous little french style *frocks*
...& french inspired summer bunting
...simple & fresh
...timeless & pretty
...& my miss.audrey does love a new frock
...what 5 year old wouldn't want to come home from school to a surprise party frock?
...heaven know the little angel has enough
...i just can't make for others & not use the rest of the fabric for her
...anyway theres worse things in life...than being surrounded by gorgeous dresses
...made with love just for you...


  1. It certainly is never too early for a girl to have lots of pretty frocks. Long may it continue. And I love your gorgeous fabrics and ribbons. Nice to find your blog! Amanda

  2. Hi Melissa, what pretty dresses you make, I love the lining that picks out the blue in the stripe. How wonderful still to have little ones who agree on your choice of clothes for them!!
    Enjoy your break, where are you going in France?

  3. Oh Miss Audrey is so beautiful and she deserves such beautiful dresses:) I love your French inspired summer dresses Melissa! PLEASE open an Etsy store before our Aussie summer, our Miss Lottie would love one of these gorgeous creations! ENJOY your week abroad, I cannot tell you how envious I am...I will just have to keep watching Le Tour for my French fix ;) Big hugs to you sweet ~ XX

  4. So sweet! So lucky to be able to pop over to France! Loving your frocks, perfect for a summer's day :)

  5. Goodness. You lot do 'abroad' like no other! And a five year old couldn't be expected to come over au fran├žais without the dress to match...

  6. Wow, those dresses are GORGEOUS, how pretty!

    Yay for French holidays too, good for you :) xo

  7. Am I allowed to say I'm just a little bit jealous! Of the dress as well!! Have a wonderful break en francais.

  8. Melissa-
    Gorgeous dresses!
    My little Charlotte wants to go to Paris so bad, to see the Eiffel tower and be a real ballerina in Paris! : ) This is what she tells me and she is quite serious. I can't wait to see pictures, have fun!

  9. Oh my goodness - gorgeous!!

  10. First of all..love love love your new header! and have I said before how I want you to come teach me to sew...these dresses are so sweet!!

  11. Lucky Audrey ... and she is so cute too! Wish I could sew. Travel as much as you can while your there - Australia isn't going anywhere! Michelle

  12. So timeless and stylish!
    My Mom used to make me little outfits like this.
    You're right. You can't make for others and not little Audrey!

  13. Sounds perfect - oh how I would love to escape - a summer hiatus - this winter over here seems to be dragging! Have a wonderful time! Leanne xx

  14. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
