Nice day for a bike ride.

Today was a busy day……working on a clients dress and Wash Day.  No time for anything else.  What a bummer!  Right?  So I took some pictures of this outfit which I had made for Olivia in early July.  I told you that one of her favorite short patterns was the Ruffle Short.  These orange gingham shorts are a favorite of hers.  She will wear them for three days in a row if I let her.  The fabric is especially soft and comes from a local childrenswear fabric company.  All she needed was a matching top.

You may think the top to be sort of plain after all that yummy color I showed you yesterday, but sometimes simplicity is best.  In this case the fabric with all the bikes did not need anything else, so I left it alone.  The pattern I used was Fair and Square by Tie Dye Diva Patterns.  I have wanted to test this pattern all Spring, so I was glad that I finally got the opportunity .  I love the square neckline and the endless possibilities of this pattern.  I wonder if anyone has added flutter sleeves?  Would that not be cute?    The pattern shows you how to make a dress and a top, which I think is great.  I believe she even has a doll pattern for this one.  That was the first question Olivia asked me when I handed the outfit to her.    Maybe I will find time for that tomorrow.  LOL.

I love to sew, which also means that I have a love for fabric.  Some women collect shoes, and some people collect dishes, but I love the entire creative process of sewing children's clothes.  The moment I see a fabric I like, I immediately have a vision of what the finished product is going to look like. Needless to say, when I was introduced to this gorgeous collection of fabrics through my United Notions rep, I just had to grab it.  Take a look for yourself and you tell me what you think.
