I am in love with Dana's new gorgeous line of Art Gallery fabric, BLUSH. SO pretty!

Paired it with some double gauze for a super soft, versatile blanket! I just wanted to snuggle this blanket while … [Read more...]

Mermaid skirt time! Perfect for costumes, Disneyland trips, or viewings of The Little Mermaid on Broadway! (which was our reason!)

Ok, so this dress is probably my favorite of the three Easter dresses! I just love a good play on stripes! I got this white and coral striped fabric ages ago-at Hobby Lobby maybe?

Sadie's Easter dress turned out just how I imagined! This floral cotton and steel/rifle paper co fabric really needed to shine, so I kept it SIMPLE!

mauve floral kensington dress

lavender floral kensington dress

If ever I could literally, physically, swoon over a fabric, it would probably be this one. Double brushed jersey knit is the stuff of dreams, peeps.
