I always get excited when new fabrics arrive at the door. This time it was a line of strawberry fabrics perfect for some new summer dresses. The main fabrics were white and yellow with coordinating fabrics in a strawberry red. Here is a picture of the group with the main strawberry fabric in white. So pretty!
May is such a great time for me to design new dresses. I am not incredibly busy on the weekends, the kids are still in school, and I am highly motivated after sewing so many Easter dresses. For this new line, I decided to try some new patterns, and I was so pleased when each each dress fit perfectly on the models. I don't usually like to offer too many different styles. It just gets too complicated, and since my little girl is not so little anymore, I have to go looking for testers or other models.
I ended up with three dresses and two bubbles. It took me an entire three weeks to plan, sew, and photograph everything, but I finally finished and now I can show you almost everything I accomplished. So drumroll please.......introducing......the Sunshine Strawberry line.
The models ranged in ages from 16mos-5yrs. Three adorable little girls that interacted so well with each other. It was the first time that I photographed more then one subject. Not the easiest task, and I probably won't do it again until next year. LOL. It was a horribly hot and muggy afternoon in Florida, but I was pleased with all the pictures. No.....let me rephrase....I was ecstatic. The dresses and bubbles all fit perfectly, and I fell in love with the new designs. Once the girls were all dressed up and ready to go, I knew that these outfits would sell. The colors, the patterns, and the prints were a perfect summer staple.
The next three blog entries will detail each dress, and all the lovely pictures we took. I hope you like them.
