Ballerina Princess - still more beautiful handmade clothes ♥

I have more gorgeous handmade outfits to show you which have all been made by the many talented ladies I have met on Facebook. How can I resist such beautiful clothes!
This beautiful flip skirt was made by Kate at Indigo Magenta. Kate's use of stunning fabrics and contrasting trim details is wonderful. Kate makes boys and girls outfits in all sizes and I think I have about five pieces in Julia's wardrobe already!
Another skirt, this one by Kylie at Possum & Sweetpea. Kylie uses very pretty fabrics and makes gorgeous shirred & pillowcase dresses as well. Her sister Kristy makes fabulous crayon rolls which are really popular.
This dress is sewn by Melissa at maggiej designs. Scott & Melissa design gorgeous kids clothes, soft toys & hair accessories and their fabrics are so bright & colourful.
Last dress, this one by Jo at Dalabri Designs. I love Jo's simple dress styles and gorgeous fabrics. She makes boys and girlswear in a wide range of styles and I'm quite sure that she can sew anything!

I have such a handmade addiction that I still have more to show you, and will get some more photos together soon.
