Introducing a new dress...Reeves

I've added a new dress to the shop, the Reeves! It is a simply sweet and delightfully flirty silk georgette dress with thin straps. It has layered netting and lace down the bodice and is finished off with tiny buttons. Shown at knee-length but can be made into tea-length or full-length. So lovely.. :)


Upholstered Ottoman

Although we love the wooden, rustic coffee table that Dustin made for us awhile back -- it's not very childproof with the amount of splinters and even rusty nails sticking out of it! So we opted to retire it and decided on an upholstered option for its replacement. Dustin has been trying his hand at upholstery and put together this piece for us...

It could not be more perfect and super comfy! We chose to use fabric from Spoonflower and have been so happy with the addition of color and pattern in our living room.


The last wedding..

..until our little one arrives! I love this photo the hub captured of one of our couples...isn't her glittery hair piece just awesome? This is actually the last wedding I was able to photograph this summer and it's bittersweet -- but I'm definitely looking forward to taking some time off from the field and spending my days by the sewing machine and prepping for baby. Not much longer!


Instagram Goodness

Quick snippets of my life lately...

...cow activity, baby showers, an escape to the mountains, dotted tissue paper, popped out belly, sketching in the shade, late night jams, shopping for the hub...


Little Clothes

A few new pieces I've made...patiently waiting to be worn..


Real Weddings

One of my favorite parts of the dressmaking process is actually seeing the dresses in action! Here are two lovely weddings from earlier this year...

Simple Intimates

I like to keep what's going on underneath, simple and easy. That may be TMI but hey, it's just not where I splurge -- I was intrigued, however, by these pieces from Steven Alan, cute and functional...all that I need. 


The Girls

Our family grew in June -- we welcomed three hens to our little hobby farm. And now we have eggs galore! Say hello to Peggy, Betty, and Joan.
