Six years ago, if you told me I'd be one of the final 3 designers on Project Run & Play, I'm not sure I would have believed you! This is totally one of those "pinch me, this can't be real" moments! I'm forever grateful to everyone who has supported and cheered me on! It's been a staggeringly talented season and each designer really gave it their all! I've been hoping to make it to this week because I really wanted to let loose! In the words of last season's winner, Pearberry Lane: this is us! We're silly, expressive, purposefully mismatched, happy, and a little weird! We're constantly evolving and learning new cultures and trying new ideas out and so I wanted to create a collection that reflects just that! I call this summery collection Our Kawaii Life!
This is the stuff dreams are made of! Announcing the GRAND OPENING of my SEW CHIBI DESIGNS PDF PATTERN SHOP featuring my first pattern: the ZOU Playset! It consists of two patterns (also sold separately!):
The ZOU CROP TOP which has optional details like color-blocked side panels, plackets and arm cuffs; puffy mini crown and eyes, mini trunk pocket or a regular-sized trunk pocket that attaches to the culottes.
The SUPER BUBBLE CULOTTES are poofy, fully lined, bloomer style shorts with an optional snap-on tail and little ties which can attach the regular-sized trunk pocket!
Fine out all the details by clicking the "read more" button below!!!
What if there was a way to immortalize your child's drawings? How would you do it? For me, it was a labor of love... x 2.
We stumbled upon the conversation of what her birthday outfit should look like. I told her she could help design it (since I am a part of an affiliate program with My Fabric Designs). Well, this little puppy girl of mine came up with the idea of animals playing instruments! How fun!
It doesn't seem that long ago that I made a rainbow inspired 5th birthday outfit, and, as irony would have it, I have done it yet again! That was the challenge: how to make an equally beautiful rainbow-inspired outfit without being repetitive. These girls are so unique; they truly have their own styles and personalities! Sephira is a free spirit that is candid with pretty much everything! I tried hard to tie in all the things she wanted (she frequently wants to be at least seven different things all at once) and keep it cohesive.
The French macarons are some of the most beautiful desserts around and we love indulging in them! I had had the notion for a while that it would be so sweet (ha!) to make a trio of delectable dresses someday. When springtime came around, I went to my party dress pattern stash and found the Caroline Dress! I knew I'd have to do a generous amount of planning and redrafting but it but soooo worth it in the end!
