I am OUT of retirement! :)

I don't know if anyone will even see this post, but I am going to be sewing for others again on a limited basis. I am going to start with Halloween and Christmas outfits with a few others thrown in. If you would like to reserve a spot just leave me a comment and your email address, and I'll get back to you.

Reserve your spot for a Valentine’s Set

Please email me at lou0728@yahoo.com  if you would like to reserve a spot for a Valentine set.....The fabric I have chosen is covered in vintage children delivering Valentine surprises with a coordinating red and pink stripe or a brown and ivory stripe. Although it does feature hearts and messages, I think it will be adorable all year long. I know my girls will wear them LONG after Feb. 14. I ABSOLUTELY love the “vintageness” of this fabric and can’t wait to get my hands on it! I will be offering a ruffled pant set, skirt set, or embellished jean set (pictures of those coming soon). I will only be making 6 pant or skirt sets and 5 embellished jean sets, so reserve your spot soon.

love and hugs!

This is the fabric I'm thinking for V-Day:

Christmas sets

I have at least 2 spots available for Christmas sets. Please let me know quickly if you're interested. The fabrics can be seen below.

A little bit of whimsy


101_1331 This is my latest set, and I am THRILLED with the end product. After I made Anne Pearce and Essie’s sets I have enough to make ONE more set. This fabric is amazing….it’s Whimsy by Pillow and Maxfield and is true eye candy. It’s got several shades of pink and green and is beautiful. The pant is a bell bottomed ruffle pant with 5 inch double ruffles….. Essie said they were dancing pants! Precious. The top is monogrammed in pink and green to match the pants. This shirt is so versatile though, and could be worn with tons of stuff. I would also do an appliqued initial tee like the one shown here if you’d rather.  I use Old Navy tshirts….. This set as shown is $55 plus $3 shipping. Act quickly. This one won’t last long. I am cutting fabric tonight, and this set will ship in a week or less.

Christmas outfits.

Hello all. I have over 20 yards of delicious designer Christmas fabrics and would hate to let them all go to waste. I have decided that I will make 5 Christmas sets with a ruffled pant, appliqued shirt, and bow for $50 ! These outfits will be delivered by the week of Thanksgiving. If I finish the first 5 I'll make some more. The first 5 people to email me will guarantee a spot in the first round. I'm also going to have a waiting list in case I finish. I anticipate that I'll be able to do 10, but I don't want to over extend myself. I have found that I have more time to sew now that my girls are in preschool and will be offering a special outfit here and there. Can't wait to hear from you guys! Merry Christmas in September!
The fabric choices are below. Keep in mind these are factory images from the Internet. All these prints are MUCH richer and deeper in person.
Choice 1 is Angel Cakes by Alexander Henry with Dots and Stripes by Riley Blake to coordinate. I can see these precious little shapes appliqued on the shirt or a candy cane out of that yummy red stripe.

Choice#2 is Whimsical trees by Alexander Henry paired with Jennifer Paganelli's Eliza Stripes in red or lime to coordinate. I can see a big present made of these fabrics appliqued on the tshirt or a funky Christmas tree...

New top and versatile pant set- $70

This outfit now holds the official title of FAVORITE OUTFIT EVER! This set includes a top or dress made from Jennifer Paganelli's Dance with Me fabrics accented with a Heather Ross stripe. It has a straight bodice and gathered skirt with a coordinating cuff at the hem. The top ties on the shoulder with coordinating fabric.... The pinks and oranges in the fabric go beautifully together. This top can be worn alone as a dress or with the pant. The pant can be worn 2 ways: as a bloomer pant with the bottom cinched with ribbon and a toggle or as a wide leg gaucho. 2 looks from one pair of pants! These pants would also be adorable with a pink, orange, or white top. This set will carry you all the way through fall, as it has plenty of room to add a long sleeved tee or top underneath. This set is available in sizes 1-8. I will make a white peasant top to match for $20 more or an initial tank for $15 more.

This shot shows the pants with the bottoms cinched.

Here are the pants without the bottoms cinched.

Pocket skirt and tee set- $50

This set includes a twirly skirt with 2 pockets and a matching pink pocket tee. The fabrics are from Sandi Henderson's farmer's market and scream color..... I love working with these fabrics... The florals and stripes work together beautifully. This set is available in sizes 1-8.
Skirt only- $40

This skirt features a floral body with a coordinating striped waistband and hem accented with 2 adorable pockets with button detail. Anne Pearce and Essie love sticking their hands in these pockets!

The matching tee features a pocket on the center of the shirt with button detailing. This skirt would also work well with a plain white or pink tee or tank.

New shorts set- $50

This adorable set includes a longer ruffled short with a matching peasant top. The top is accented with rick rack and button corsage trim. If you would rather I can make the peasant without embellishments, and it will be a wardrobe staple.... This outfit is available in size 1-8. Size 6 and up please add $8

The shorts feature a 2 1/2 inch ruffle and DELICIOUS fabric.

This is a closeup view from the back. The peasant top features rolled hems and shirring around the neck, sleeves, and waist.

Halloween Fabrics have been chosen!

Guys, I wish I could order them all but I can't..... Here's what's coming. Please go ahead and send me an email letting me know which set of fabrics you want, and I'll make a list. I have LIMITED quantities of each of these fabrics, and when they're gone, they're gone.... Muriel, you're usually the only boy order I get with DJ maybe, so we'll choose his together ;)

Witches in Stitches with black and white polkas..... I can see this in the Natalie dress accented with several other fabrics.... A fun pant with embellished tee, a reversible A line......

I LOVE these cats all dressed up.... It coordinates perfectly with the stripe..... I think AP and EK will have a set from each!
