Surprise, Surprise….


Well, well…..I finally had the time to create and design.  What a wonderful week this is turning out to be!  Here are some sneak peeks of my Fall/Winter releases from the rest of the Avalon group.  I finally turned this lovely fabric into dresses, managed to get a photoshoot finished, and guess what?  I still have more to show.  Whew!  or as Gomer would say “Shazam!”

I love this line of fabrics…full of brown, red, orange and green tones.  It is called Tapestry from Fig Tree Quilts.  If you have not visited her website, then I suggest you do so quickly.  She designs such beautiful fabrics.

Anyways, the fun part of putting these fabrics together is finally finished.  The hard part is wondering whether the design I chose was really the best I could do.  Anyone else ever have that problem.  So once I finished these two dresses, I played around in Photoshop to see what other type of pattern I could have used.  Tell me what you think?

I am a big fan of classic design, so out of curiousity I wanted to see what the dress would look like without the flutter sleeves and a classic bodice?  I am a very visual person, so I have to see it to make any sense out of it.  I am still not sure which type of dress I like best.  It depends on the occasion and the age of the child.  So I thought I should just ask my readers, which one do you like best?  The flutter sleeve dress has an elasticized back, which I still gravitate towards since it allows the child to grow with the dress.  The classic bodice has buttons in the back.  Both are very pretty, but it is still a hard choice.

I will show pictures from each dress, and give you more detailed information tomorrow.  Thanks for reading, and Have a great day!
