Vintage Style Black and White Gingham Girls Dress

Oh happy day!  A cute new dress. 

I am so happy that I finally feel like things are getting back to normal.  This year has just turned out to be really crazy!  That is what my daughter said to me the other day. LOL. 

Nothing has gone the way it was supposed to go this year.  I cannot even remember the last time I posted, or designed something.  It seems like forever.  One minute I was in a crazy Easter race to the finish line, and the next thing I know the kids are sent home, and our lives are flipped upside down.  It was bad enough that we all had to deal with this horrible COVID19 virus, but in our case, we also had to deal with a tornado and a week later a very large fire that burned 5000 acres of land in our small town.  The anxiety has been a bit overwhelming.  The good news is that nobody got hurt.  We lost a lot of trees, and many homes not far from where I live.  Our house had roof damage from the tornado, and fences were torn down.  I've been dealing with contractors, insurance adjusters and all kinds of people going in and out of the house.   You probably saw the fire on the news.  We were ordered to evacuate several times, but thank goodness it never got to that point, and we were spared.  It was frightening, and so devastating to so many families.  Absolutely crazy times.....I won't even get into a discussion about this little hurricane that is spinning over our head right now.  I know......really really CRAZY times.

I can't complain about business because things have been moving along very nicely considering.........that we have lost power for about 10 days during the last two months.  Our customers have been wonderful, leaving us such nice reviews.  As a matter of fact, we decided it was time to pay back so many of you for your loyalty.  Our REWARDS program is in full swing, and I hope you take advantage of it.  Sign up, and gather those points. You will get a nice reward.  It is worth it.  If you have any questions, please ask or chat with me anytime.  

 This weekend, I was asked to make two flower girl dresses for a black and white wedding.  Perfect.  When I mentioned that I had a larger gingham print, our customer loved the idea.  I am always a bit nervous designing things in my head, and not having the time to test the product.  In this case, we already know that the pattern is a great fit, but this was the first time I made this pattern in such a large gingham print.  I loved the end result.   The dresses were adorable.  A black and white dress for a little girl that can look formal, and casual at the same time........what is there not to love?

Matching hair bows are also available........

Thanks for letting me ramble on.  I enjoy taking the time to blog about our hiccups, and ups and downs.  I also love sharing pictures and ideas with all of my blog followers.  This is one vintage styled dress that I think will sell really well to everyone who loves handmade children's clothing.  It can be worn with white sneakers, sandals or shoes in the fall.  You can layer the dress with a t-shirt or wear it as-is during the summer months.
