So despite all of this snow on the ground, I am so ready for spring. And while it may not seem like it, spring will be here before you know it. I recently found this amazing brushed hacci fabric from Sly Fox which I used to make this fabulous floral spring dress. It was my first ever purchase from the company and I was so thrilled to to find out they were local and instead of paying shipping I could pick up my fabric for free! Score! Add to that, I got to pick up my fabric at their offices and see rolls and rolls of beautiful knit fabric. I was seriously in fabric heaven. They even told me that if I call in, I can come shop at the office and checkout there too! I almost died…seriously. Read on for more about my first spring post.
For our family Christmas photos this year, I knew I wanted to make some mommy and me outfits. I’m a big fan of plaid and was immediately attracted to this plaid fabric from Joann Fabric. I was also crazy about a few new patterns from Violette Field Threads, and wanted to take advantage of their black Friday sale. For the girls, I chose the Blithe by VFT and for me, I chose the quick and easy M7505 pattern by McCall’s. Read on for more mommy and me photos and my full review of the patterns used.
I recently joined a blog tour with some very talented bloggers. We had the opportunity to try some new patterns that launched this week by Petite Stitchery. I chose the Rory , which is a women’s peplum, dress and skirt. Read on for my full review and photos.
