Dawn's Custom Dress

Let me just start by saying -- Dawn is the best, period. I've followed her work online for many years and was thrilled when she asked to collaborate on her wedding dress. She is my ideal bride! We pieced together two of my existing dress styles (Elsie & Lucille) then tweaked it to Dawn's preference. Doesn't it look just darling? Best wishes to this sweet couple!

Maeve Jumper - PDF Sewing Pattern

I'm excited to share my latest PDF sewing pattern, the Maeve Jumper! I created this jumper for my daugther this past summer and here are a few examples of what I've made using this pattern..

Sailboat Jumper
Nani Iro Jumper
Liberty of London Jumper

And of course, the one pictured below is with this fabric by Cotton and Steel. This super sweet jumper is perfect for your little lady. Bodice is lined and adorned with three buttons. Can be worn as a summer dress or layered in the cooler months with a tee and leggings. Available in sizes 18-24, 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T.

Happy sewing! and as always, I'd love to see your creations!

Kat's Custom Dress

I've had the opportunity to work one-on-one with a few brides this year. The experience reminds me so much of making my own wedding dress with my mom and it feels refreshing to be a part of that process with other people. 

Kat came to me with a vision of pink for her wedding day and a touch of sparkle! We went with a very subtle silk pink fabric for her strapless "Belle" dress and paired it with a netted, sparkly, off the shoulder-type cardigan. The combo was gorgeous. She also asked me to make a sweet flower dress for her daughter -- which we did from a peach cotton fabric that featured a peter pan collar. Perfection!
