If it is true that a picture says a thousand words, well then the excitement in my daughter's eyes should tell you a lot. 

My daughter is my toughest critic.  Not only does she give me her honest opinion, she wears her dresses just like she would wear a pair of jeans.  She's tough.  Of course, for me that is great!   I get to see how well the dresses hold up after she wears them.  A really great pattern tester.   

The older she gets, the tougher it is to find nice things for my daughter to wear.  I want something girly and nice, and she wants something more grown up.   Yes, the typical mom and girl dilemma.  So I am always happy when she falls in love with one of my designs.  I am sure that won't be the case in 2 or 3 years. 

 The latest craze is.......Gingham!

So let's talk fabric.  This large gingham print is a strong trend this season.  I have seen it everywhere - Journals, pillows, clothing, blouses.  I have it in three colorways - as seen on my daughter in a light greenish teal, aquamarine and a bold bright pink.  I will be sure to take a picture of all three colors soon.  The fabric is lightweight, easy care 100% cotton, and lovely to wear.

Introducing the May Dress.

It is a lovely pattern with quite a few details.  I see it as a farmer's dress, simple, summery, but I am in love with it.  I could not believe how well this fabric matched to my daughter's turquoise converse sneakers.  PERFECTO!  So be sure to grab some if you buy this dress.   As you can see the back bodice is nice and airy just perfect for the spring summer seasons.  It has ties on top (so no buttons whatsoever) and an elasticed back.  

And who doesn't love those pockets. Another fantastic detail that girls of all ages just love.  

Barefoot and happy in our Florida Sun!

Our modeling sessions have become a really great way for me to bond with my daughter.  It's just me, her, my camera and an adventure we have yet to tackle.

I get to work on my photography skills, and she gets to drag me all over town looking for new locations.  A real treat for both of us.  Yesterday's excursion took us about three hours, but it was worth it.  I took some really great photos and have a renewed love for my very inexpensive 85mm lens.
