These started as a baby shower gift for a friend and they are quickly becoming the prototypes for a possible new line for my "shop". They were fun to make and certainly have me thinking about adding another line to my collection!

I'm going to have to look into the rules of selling children's clothes, there are quite a few, and see if it is a real possibility.
My girls are very excited I've been given the opportunity to do more pattern testing, they benefit big time! This quick and easy to put together, I did have to make the elastic in the back much smaller than she suggested because my 9 year old (in 10 days!) is super skinny. Otherwise it was perfect in length and style. For my less girly girl this was perfect and she happily wore it. She also pelted me with questions about being a model and if I thought it was a possibility for a future career. I told her to keep up the good work!
I was asked to make a few small changes to my usual Mermaid dress for this customer. I added plain blue after the trim as a nice clean edge. I also painted the skirt inset and sleeve appliques (very hard to see in the pictures) like I do my Fin, it turned out really well and I'd like to give it a try again in the future.
This is a dress I've been planning for quite some time.
I finally got to try my hand at it last week!
I really like how it turned out.
Things I learned from this project are - white fringe is WAY harder to find than I ever imagined and go with the hard way to do something first. I had to dismantle the entire collar peice and rework it because it looked awful the "easy" way!
