What I wore- Toddler version



Shirt “hand crafted” by her brother. skirt made by me using a lil blue boo twirl skirt pattern.

I love when she picks that handmade clothes to wear over her regular stuff.




Lots of new plans in the sewing department. I recently purchased three production licenses from lilblueboo.com to make their twirl skirt, halter dress, and sienna dress. I have made these before and love them because they are so fast and easy to make and you can use recycled shirts as your material.Yay for low overhead and recycling!!

I renamed my shop stripes and ruffles. I think it balances the two things I like to sew. I love sewing with recycled materials and I love using designer fabrics and creating ruffly, girly outfits. http://www.etsy.com/shop/StripesandRuffles

I am also finishing up an apron for a cupcake birthday dress for a special childhood friend whose daughter is turning three. I did one last year for her, too.

I have some white fabric coming that I have some dye plans for. I have two bottles of RIT all ready for it. I want to sew a few dresses using hand dyed fabric. I am obsessing over ombre on pinterest right now.

I will also be pattern testing for whimsy couture and create kids couture this week. I love pattern testing because it gives me a deadline and usually forces me to work on things I normally wouldn’t do. I am doing some fancy ruffle pants for CKC and a sunny day suit for WC.

My nice camera got the top ripped off while we were in Tennessee so I am going to try and drop that off to get repaired this week. Hoping it doesn’t cost a fortune. At least I have my back up canon power shot.
