Photos by Papa

Thank you guys for all the Katie-love. For those who are wondering her red coat is isabel garreton. A tip when buying such a coat is to buy it big — really big — so they can wear it for two or three winters. That may seem fairly obvious but I figured I’d share anyway.

Working the CatwalkThe dress pattern is Burda 3026 from their Start line. I am very pleased with how the dress turned out and Katrina loves it since she can’t seem to even wait for it to dry from being washed before she’s trying to wear her Eiffel tower dress again. I will say, if you plan to use this pattern, it is more of a tunic then a dress. I’ve gone a little garment-making crazy so you’ll be seeing more of Katrina modeling in the future. The credit for the photos goes to Papa Urchin. He had the idea to have her stand up like that on the catwalk even if it was just the trunk at the end of our bed.

And speaking of Papa, as I mentioned previously, he’s been working on sharing some of his photos with the world so I am pleased to announce he has started a photo blog — Papa Urchin. He has requested that I ask you guys to start looking at the posts from the beginning but since I know not everyone will be able to do that I’ll give you the skinny here. His plan is to post a photo daily (or close to daily) and tell you what he feels is good and bad about the photo. Then you can leave a comment to tell him what you think is good or bad. On Fridays he’s posting some of his best photographs. Anyway, get on over there and give him some commenty love.

    well now, if this isn’t the sweetest little dress and so is the munchkin wearing it! there’s nothing like a new dress to make one feel special. the fabric is great too, perfect for this petite paris model. i’ve been in the mood to sew a few frocks for my girls and this cutie really inspires me to get on the ball. thanks for sharing it. now i’m going to check out papa urchin photos. . .
