I recently had a request for a 3/4 length sleeve shift dress. She also wanted to choose her own fabric to suit her daughter perfectly.
I love it when clients choose their own fabric. It’s fun for me to see what they choose since there are so many options. In this case, “Tossed Flowers” in Yellow by Maywood Studios was chosen. How perfect for bringing some sunny cheer into the upcoming winter days.
We currently have a make it your own party dress in our shop and now have decided to add this shift dress as another style option. Fabric is included in the price. Simply go to the fabric store, choose your favorite and let us know your decision upon check out. We’ll take care of the rest.
A christening dress is a special dress, but when it’s made from a part of your mothers wedding dress? wow.
This is my latest upcycling project. I was asked to make this for a baby girl named Natalie, and I was thrilled to do it! What a great idea.
Do you have any ideas, or items you would like made?
Feel free to contact us and we’ll see if we can make it happen!
I recently discovered Oliver & S. Finally, a pattern company with modern, appealing patterns for children. I love reading their blog and I am especially inspired by their newly released fall ’09 patterns.
I purchased the jump rope dress pattern because I want to make a couple more items for Isabella to wear for school.
Their uniform shirts must include a collar, so I adapted the pattern for the dress, and made it into a shirt instead. Basically just left out the skirt (obviously) and placed some elastic around her waist line to give it some shape.
It was a bit of a challenge for me as I have never sewn a placket before. Fortunately, the instructions were well written. I forced myself to use them, and I’m happy with the results.
I’m not sure which one yet, they’re both so sweet.
maybe one of each?
