Three Little Skirts


With spring just around the corner, it was time to make some new skirts for my girl.  She rarely wears anything but dresses and skirts these days, so she was thrilled with these new additions to her wardrobe.

Peaches & Cream


If you've been following along on Instagram, you've seen this latest dress I've made for my daughter.  I was inspired by this lovely peachy-coral coloured fabric I found at my local fabric shop.  It's got beautiful gold shimmery stripes and begged to be something a little fancy, so I self-drafted a double skirted, 3/4 sleeve dress with an invisible zipper closure.  The bow in front was added completely my daughter's request.  I love the fact that she is getting more involved with the design process!

Swan Lake Tinny Dress


Prior to the holidays, I had the pleasure of making my daughter a new dress for Christmas.  She had chosen some beautiful fabric at a shop in Vancouver and from that point onward, it was a constant "When are you going to make my Swan Lake dress?".  She couldn't wait, and when it was done, she adored it and has worn it so many times since.  The Tinny by StraightGrain has been recently updated, and I'm so pleased with the pattern and its classic design with many options.  There will be more Tinny dresses for my girl in the near future!

My Favourite E&E Pattern


You know how with your children you don't have favourites?  You love them all equally, right?  Obviously!  Well, I don't know if I can say the same about my patterns.  If I had to pick a favourite, I would have to say it's the Bohemian Babydoll.  Why, you might ask?  Here are my top five reasons:

1.  No closures on the back so patterned fabric is seamless (and it's super quick to make and economical, too!)

Birds & the Bees - a new collection by Tamara Kate


Have you seen Tamara Kate's brand new collection Birds & the Bees for Michael Miller Fabrics?  I had the privilege and pleasure of getting my hands on these beautiful fabrics recently and am so excited to share what I made with you!  Having had the opportunity to work with her Origami Oasis collection last year, I knew we were in for a treat, and there most definitely was no disappointment with this newest expression of Tamara Kate's artistry.
