Two fabric tours in one week! Lucky me! I was thrilled to be invited to sew up something in the new line by the Simple Simon gals-Four Corners. (Also by Riley Blake!)


This fantastic mustard cross print was calling to me (on a yellow kick I guess), and I knew it had to be something for Sadie.

She needed a few longer dresses (she keeps sprouting up!) and she looks great in mustard yellow.

Lately I’m into simple, and I really wanted to show off the print, so I went with our basic dress from 5&10 Designs Vol. 1.

(which I LOVE, have sewn it up a few times…and funny thing, the fabric here is super similar to what Stef sewed our basic dress with! lol)

It’s a classic! I sewed it up in a 6, and lengthened the dress 3″ so it would last her longer and widened the skirt panels for more gathered-ness. (just made that word up. I know, it’s awesome)

Thanks to Liz and Elizabeth for inviting me on your tour, and CONGRATS on the new line!

I have another piece of fabric from the line that I am saving…HOPEFULLY to sew something up for baby boy.

Or girl…it could really work for both genders. 😉


  1. I love the photo of Sadie with Luna! So pretty! That’s a pretty cute dress too. =)

  2. What a lovely dress! Now i also ‘need’ that fabric :). When will it be for sale?

  3. Lovely dress, and gorgeous fabric!

  4. I read this post a few weeks ago and just wanted to pop back and say that this dress has really stuck with me. I keep visualising it in my head and scheming about how I need to make one myself. Kudos!
