This week, the challenge was to design and create something entirely from your preexisting stash of fabrics! I wanted to make some really sweet, super playful and girly looks! The fashion I like to make my kiddos is reflective of their bubbly and silly personalities: bright, diverse, and, most importantly, with a sense of humor. So for my 4 year old, I wanted to make something that I knew she would love: 🍦Ice Cream🍦! To pair up with the chartreuse neoprene, I wanted the ice cream part to be bubblegum pink. I looked to my stash for a print that would complement those two colors and chose a pink floral (as well as a matching pinkish red polka-dot cotton fabric) for an outfit for my 6-year-old. "Where are these girls (in these dresses) going?" Brunch! These two little ladies are getting all dressed up for a Sunday afternoon in downtown Portland, in one of the many hipster neighborhoods, the Hawthorne district, enjoying some eats and stopping at a few shops along the way! So that's why I decided to call this week: Ice Cream and Sundays (pun intended! 😊)
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!
It’s the 25th!!! So you know what that means: SEW GEEKY! This month’s theme is Epic Fantasy inspired. Think Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, or really anything that would conjure up visions of enchantment.
