The final garments in our Pink, Burgundy and Mustard capsule wardrobe are these 2 pink knit dresses. Our toddler wears these two all the time, and with a sweater and leggings, will continue wearing them into fall!

Striped Matching Girls Dresses

A while back I saw a friend of mine wearing a reverse stripe shirt.  Actually, I’m just calling it that…none of the Google search terms I entered brought up a shirt like the one she was wearing.  The body of the shirt was white with black stripes and the sleeves were black with white stripes. Continue reading “Striped Matching Girls Dresses”

Stripes and Flowers Girl’s Maxi Dress

Ah the maxi dress! Annie loves them, and I love sewing them for her. A maxi dress on a young girl is such a statement piece. And with fabric as bold as we used for this one, it’s no wonder she’s been wearing it every chance she gets. For this maxi dress we used theContinue reading “Stripes and Flowers Girl’s Maxi Dress”

Forest Floor Adventure

Stepping into the forest, on and off the path, in the dappled lighting we discovered quite an adventure. A deer bounded across the path and paused to stare at us with it’s great doe eyes. Four squirrels nibbled corn a forbidden arms length away. Something mysterious swam just beneath the water,  surfaced with a splashContinue reading “Forest Floor Adventure”

Women’s Uptown Downtown Dress Review

The Uptown Downtown Dress by Sew Straight and Gather is one of our favorite patterns for girls.  So when it was released for women, we snapped it right up.  All of us want one, but Aria was the lucky first recipient.
