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.
So here you see the first pictures of Ms. Olivia modeling our new “CLEMENTINE” Top with our orange polka dot capri leggings. Thank you Judy for the lovely name. I absolutely love the color combination of orange and pink and green. It really turned out to be a beautiful outfit, and great for BACK-TO-SCHOOL.
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.
