Remember this?

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.

Lace Top

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 :)

Pink Sheer blouse

These sheer shirts have been HUGE lately. I have seen them everywhere. I made this Sheer shirt a few months ago and listed it on my etsy store all the sudden the last couple of weeks I've sold a whole bunch of them in every color. I think out of a bunch of different colors this pink one is turning out to be one of my favorites. In fact I loved it so much I decided to make one for myself :) Go make yourself one. Or, if you would rather buy one visit my store.

Flower Girl Dresses

 I have been doing TONS of weddings lately. Which is great! I actually really enjoy doing special occasion clothing. I haven't been taking many pictures because I've mostly been doing my Lace Pencil Skirts which you've all seen already. These Flower girl dresses turned out really cute. I was worried they would be too simple but once I added the satin sash I thought it was just perfect for a wedding. 3 of the 4 dresses just happened to be the same size as my 3 girls so of course I made them try them on so I could take pictures ;) This cute bride also chose something a little different then the traditional thing for her bridesmaids and they are turning out gorgeous!  I'll post some pictures of those as soon as they are done!

If you or someone you know is in need of a seamstress for a wedding let me know! I just love doing weddings. feel free to brows thru my etsy store here.

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!

Ruffle crib skirt

I feel so guilty that I haven’t blogged in forever. Life has been a little crazy lately. But I've still been sewing nonstop & have lots of projects I'm excited to show you!  The first of which is this gorgeous ruffled crib skirt.
    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.
