Bridesmaid mania

As most of you probably know, I've been sewing wedding after wedding all summer long. It's so fun to see the final product on the big day. I love it when the brides are sweet enough to send me pictures! Her color combinations turned out beautiful.

This summer has been amazing and I'm feeling so grateful for all the amazing support from all my family, friends & sewing clients on getting my little sewing business up and running. I've been WAY busier then I ever imagined and for that I am extremely grateful!!

To show my gratitude I am offering a sale on my very popular lace skirts. From now until Saturday enter the code THANKS into the promotion code box to get $15 off your skirt. That makes them just $30 (normally $45) There come in a variety of colors. If you don't see a color you like let me know and I'll see if I can find it for you. Thanks again!!

My beautiful daughter

 Beware for picture overload!! My beautiful daughter made the decision to be baptized. I couldn't be more proud of her! We designed her baptism Dress together. She loved the baptism dress I made here. But she also wanted to incorporate the lace that I used for this blessing dress. So together we drew lots of pictures and this is what we came up with.
 I love it so much and I think it completely fits her personality perfectly. It's elegant without being to much or over the top.
 She is just the sweetest girl ever. I love her so much and couldn't be more impressed with the beautiful, kind, sweet girl that she has become.

If you are interested in ordering a custom baptism dress for your daughter I would love to work with you.  Please check out my etsy store here. I would love to talk to you.

Romper Dress

My sister in law just had a baby & wanted something unique for a blessing dress. She decided she wanted something ivory or off white. And she really liked the look of rompers, so we came up with this cute romper dress. I added short sleeves to make it more modest & I made it long enough so it would extend off of the infants legs and cascade down. I also made a small button hole toward the top corner so she could switch out between flowers and bows to change up the look. I think It turned out really cute. It will be fun to see it on her on her special day!

Twirly Circle Dress

I am just in love with these adorable circle dresses. They are what I call semi Homemade.

You start with a tshirt. I used one with a big stain on it.

Next, measure from where you want the waist band to be, down to the length you'd like and write it down.

Next, you are going to measure your fabric.  Cut the waist first you are going to literally cut a circle for the waist.  This is where the fabric will attach to the Tshirt.

Then, Measure from the edge of the circle you just cut for the length you want and cut all the way around.  So you will end up with a big circle with a little circle in the middle.  When folded in half it will look like this.

Flip the fabric inside out and put the shirt inside it so that the right sides are together.  Pin all the way around. Sew all the way around

Next Hem or serge the bottom.

You can add a waist band ribbon or any type of embellishments that you want.

Have your princess take it for a spin.  Takes about 15 minutes to half an hour and turns out SO adorable.

Paint on an old shirt

We all have those shirts with a little stain on them. I've been on a bit of a Tshirt kick lately. I saw this post on one of my favorite blogs & knew I had to try it myself. Just a little paint, a brush, some tape and cardboard. So simple & an easy transformation. Find an awesome tutorial on how to do this here.
