When I look back through this year's pictures, I absolutely love the direction my sewing has taken.  It reflects my favorite vintage style of patterns, with a touch of modern fabrics.  The Evelyn dress is still my favorite with the big ruffles on the sleeve, and now this new design with a big twirly skirt and a crisp white collar.  Keeping our girls well dressed is what it is all about.  All I did was take a classic dress pattern, and designed my own collar.  Unlike most collars, I did not want it to go around the entire neckline.  Instead the collar stops at the shoulder seams.   Yes, I am afraid it is my design, because I could not find a pattern or anything similiar except the CAROLINE pattern by MOUSE HOUSE Creations.  The pattern looked very nice, but it did not cover all the sizes I wanted to sell.  I love the idea of this dress for babies, and of course the top is perfect for our older girls.

IMG_0629 IMG_0631   For those of you who prefer a pair of matching cotton capris, these green CLEMENTINE CAPRI PANTS are also a perfect match for our Clementine top.  I also have two gingham cotton fabrics - one in green and one in orange - that match perfectly to this top.  As soon as they are finished I will post them next to the dress, and most likely blog about them. I have already posted the dress, top and pants to my website, and you are the first to learn that these items are available.  So have fun, and expect a 2-3 week delivery or turnaround time.  We will try our very best to have all orders out in a 2 week timeframe as long as we can.
