Roxana’s Home Baking madeit - the handmade market open all day every day :: buy & sell australian handmade :: online handmade market :: art :: craft :: design Love in Paris Dress {Pattern and Tutorial}... Have you seen the movie Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen? I am not typically a Woody Allen fan, my hubby and I rented this not knowing it was one of his. But I must admit, we actually really liked it! The screenplay was something so different than anything we had ever seen. So much so, that I simply had to remake one of their 20′s dresses into something for my own kids. And that is how Chloe and Madeline came upon their Easter dresses this year. I decided to make Chloe’s in all pink linen, with contrasting pink trim. We had a lot of fun at the photo shoot. But I must admit, I think I like Madeline’s version more. Whenever I ask Madeline what she wants to wear she always says the same thing – ‘flowers’. To make your own Love in Paris 20′s dress, click HERE. I hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time… Happy Sewing! *Please Note – The link should bring you directly to a Google doc. Jess Latest posts by Jess (see all)

I thought it would be fun to round up a few of the cakes I’ve been drooling over lately. I haven’t baked a cake in a long time–which is strange because I always find the whole process very relaxing. It always feels rewarding to top off your creation with frosting, fruit or powdered sugar. I used to make cake for other people often–I’d like to make time for that again. ♡ ➔ rosewater glitter cake ♡ ➔ persian love cake w/ candied rose petals ♡ ➔ chocolate w/ salted caramel frosting ♡ ➔ earl grey roll cake ♡ ➔ frances’ lumberjack cake ♡ ➔ pistachio olive oil cake with fig compote filling and cream cheese frosting ♡ ➔ red velvet cake w/ fluffy white frosting ♡ ➔ mini layer cakes ♡ ➔ lemon & lavender chiffon cake w/ honey lavender cream ♡ ➔ basil pear cake ♡ ➔ chocolate guinness cake ♡ ➔ vanilla cake w/ whipped vanilla bean frosting ♡ ➔ little chocolate cakes w/ whiskey cream ♡ ➔ chocolate blackberry cake
