Peaches & Cream

Monday, January 25, 2016

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

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

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!
