Baby Quilts

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this photo of my tiny blocks. I'm finishing up a seris of baby quilts and could not be more excited to share. My workspace is in the back of my mom's quilting/sewing store and I often get the itch to piece fabrics together when I'm not busy sewing silk dresses. Before this new baby debuts in late August, I can already feel its going to be a summer of sewing...

Sailboat Button-Up Dress

Pattern testing means lots of new dress for my daugther! Still perfecting this button-up dress and I'm loving it in this sailboat print (Hearty Good Wishes by Janet Clare for Moda Fabrics). Can you sense a possible children's etsy shop in the works? Hmm...

Summer Dress

I'm in love with this darling little dress. The fabric is Nani Iro Joy Flower and it is just so lovely -- I knew it needed to be made into something as equally sweet. So, I drafted this button-up tank dress that has a lined bodice and gathered skirt.

Embroidered Peplum Top

I finally returned to my embroidery machine this week and whipped up this cat shirt for my daughter. We have entered into short-sleeve weather in North Carolina so I drafted her this knit peplum top with a personalized cat monogram. Fabric is from Girl Charlee and the monogram is a custom design.
