What’s up sewers and fabric hoarders!

I thought I’d pass along two dresses… both can be made to order… as usual, the first one is made in a size 6/8 so those are ready to ship!

Team Spirit dress in Lark by Amy Butler. Oh how I love this fabric… obviously, right!

Pantone's color of the year is pale purple. But let's be honest…I hate that color! This is my favorite print so far with any sort of purple in it. Just sayin'.

Well, if you read yesterday’s post then you understand why I haven’t posted much in the way of actual created pieces … I’ve been hard at work on a new non profit!  It’s super exciting, and I can’t wait to see what comes of it.

Although this fun new project has kept my mind very busy the last few months, I have actually been busy with  my machine too…several Etsy orders have been and are being completed, and I finally put my scissors to one of my favorite fabrics…I had less than 2 yards, so I resorted to none other than yet another strapless number.  This one is a tunic / mini dress.  I have to be honest – I LOVE IT!  I’m not sure I can sell it.  Still thinking about that … I think I’ll say that if it doesn’t sell by Sunday afternoon, then YAY FOR ME, I’ll pack it up and take it to Vail, Colorado with me!

Size small, hits about mid thigh. Price: $75

Isn't this just the happiest fabric you've ever seen!?!

I really like how the yellow polka dots add a little flair to the belt!

Belt doubles as a scarf!

I’ve also been working on a few things for the girls, a dress for my trip to Vail, Colorado … and my summer project – recovering these:

I found 2 of these on Craigslist for $45 total ...

Hoping they'll look something like this one from Anthropologie by the end of summer! Can. not. wait!

Okay friends … go to sleep.

OBI OH MY!

This little dress has been in my head for about 6 months…i am SO relieved to have let this one fly free!!!!

It’s a simple little strapless dress with an Obi belt – I used an asian inspired designer fabric for the dress, so I created an Obi belt but used the oh-so-American polka dotted fabric on it.  Say what you like, but I love it.  When things get stuck in my head for so long, they don’t usually end up looking as nice in real life as they do in my head.  In this case, however, I think I’m even MORE in love with it in the real world…I’ll have to try it on to know for sure!

For tonight – I’ll rest easily knowing I’ve just freed up more space in my head….

(don’t worry all of you waiting on your Etsy orders – I’m working frantically, I just took a little break!)
