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!

  5. Are the patterns from drive and ten designs still available? I’m having trouble with the link, the page it takes me to has no information on how to get the patterns. Thanks for your help.
