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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

I have not blogged in a while because I've been drowning in lace skirts! I've done about 6 weddings, all of which have requested lace bridesmaids skirts in one form or another. I've been doing little else these days. I've asked the brides to send me pictures of there weddings for you all to see. So stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, remember that cute tie onsies I made for my cousin out of my late grandpa's dress shirts? Well, one of them finally fits. Is he not the cutest little thing you've ever seen.

I was so excited when I was asked to make a matching lace shirt to go with this lace skirt for a wedding. I have been wanting to do one of these for a while for myself, but have been so busy doing custom orders I have hardly had time to sew anything for myself. It's so fun to do weddings. I love to work with brides and hear of the ideas that they have, to be able to be the one to make there dreams and visions a reality is so cool to me. This lace is the exact Ivory lace that I use in the lace skirt. It looks lighter in this picture because I have a lighter undershirt underneath it. That is something else I love about this lace. It seems to change depending on what you want to put underneath it.
If you have one of my lace skirts and would like to have a matching top feel free to visit my etsy store here. This shirt would also look great with just about anything. I love it and when I get caught up I will be making one (or several) for myself :)

I've been doing lots and lots of pillows lately. These ones I think are my favorite. My parents recently moved to a new apartment in Canada and I wanted to make my mom something cute for her new place. She picked out the fabric. I love how they turned out. They are very modern and classy. I added a zipper to the bottom for easy removal for washing. Now I need to make myself some!

My beautiful cousin is expecting her 2nd daughter this summer and fell in love with the idea of a ruffle crib skirt. However, she fell in love with them before she realized how much they cost. These puppies start at about $200 and go up from there. That's just for the crib skirt all by itself. I told her I'd be happy to help her out.
Her nursery is going to be mint & salmon. With chevron accents. So cute!
I used just under 5 yards of fabric. I just made a basic bed skirt & then layered it with ruffles. It's honestly pretty time consuming which is probably why they can be so pricy. But in the end, it's gorgeous & can be a beautiful focal point to the crib. I'm hoping to find the time to make something similar for my girls big girl beds.
