navy and coral peplum dress

This should apparently be called her party dress since she seems to be having the time of her life in these shots! Miss C loves to goof off during shoots, she shakes her booty for me at least twice per shoot. Cute, but not going on the blog, dear. Anyways...I sewed up this dress quite a few weeks ago, around the time I sewed up these tops, and … [Read more...]

buffalo plaid and gold foldover clutch

buffalo plaid and gold foldover clutch

  I recently participated in a handmade swap and whipped up this little foldover clutch for the lady who's name I drew! I kinda didn't want to send it away, but alas, promises were made, so off it went. grumble grumble. just kidding. a little bit. The buffalo plaid is flannel-a remnant I found at Joanns...and promptly wished I could have … [Read more...]

KCW: arizona toddler tee

Kids Clothes Week: arizona toddler tee

Just another little last minute gathered tee for KCW! (one more tee to show and then I'm done!) I used the same formula as this tee, only with some adorable Arizona knit fabric that the lovely Alida sent me! and the rest of this skirt!

KCW: upcycled tees

Kids Clothes Week: upcycled knit tees

Sometimes simple is the way to go. In the case of this thrifted tee, I've actually had it for years, and finally KCW pushed me to use it up! I didn't stray far from it's original form-just cut it apart (using the slimmed down Nessie) and then resewed it up into a cute little tee! I think my favorite part of this one is those cute elbow … [Read more...]

KCW: upcycled skirts & and pair of leggings

Kids CLothes Week-upcycled striped skirt

I'm kinda in love with this one because it was SOOOOOO easy. I had this adorable striped skirt that my bestie had given me, but alas it was too long because I am a shortie. But I loved the fabric and the way the stripes played off of each other. So this one I just chopped it off at about 15" long, then folded over the top to create a … [Read more...]

I love finding L.E. tees in great shape because the fabric is superb...this one had one teeny bleach spot that I was able to cut … [Read more...]
