I Sew

This year I decided to make and design the majority of Ellie's little dresses for summer. My daughter even wears them with jeans on occasion just because that's what she likes to do. I hope to sell the dresses and variations of them sometime soon. So here is a sampling of what I love to do...







I then let the mama guilt set in and felt bad for never making K.J. anything so the lovely Katie from Katie Did helped me create some special shirts for my son. Then, of course, my sweet little lady wanted one too. Although it is a bit time consuming, they make the best gifts and my kids can not get enough of them.

I love all of the clothes. I have a sewing machine that was given to me by a friend - I may have to dust it off and start to learn how to sew. Thanks for the inspiration!

nkp said...

Ok, get ready Paula because I have a tendency to gush...OMG, these are absolute genius!!! I don't have a little girl, but if I did I would buy every last one of them, I kid you not. Heck, I would wear them.

I adore the simple natural linen offset by those exuberant bursts of color and the shapes are so sweet, as is your precious Ellie.

Lucky me, I have two nieces, on born just yesterday. So I will definitely be on your customer list.

And the t-shirts are adorable, those I could make great use of. Any chance you might post a tutorial?

Happy Monday you super talented lady!

You are so amazingly talented. When do you find the time? I sew dresses for Kate too, but they're simpler than these! I am in love with the one with the blue ribbon at the shoulders... you should open a shop. No question. xo
