Here is Part 2 of my Fall Release-Hummingbird Dresses
Beautiful Miss A.
I’m super excited to be bringing several new and updated original Ruffle Dresses to my collection. I used the lovely and amazing Ruffle Fabric, LLC . I absolutely love this fabric and love the ladies behind it. They are so sweet and are ready to answer any question you have!! Plus, have you seen their website?! So many colors to chose from. The possibilities are endless.
I chose to make SERVERAL Hummingbird dresses. Not only are the dress results beautiful but they are so easy to modify into my own ‘sweet’ style.
Tomato and Blue Bird Hummingbird Dresses
Gotta love the “V” back
Great Dress for twirling!!!
The next dress is made with Men’s suiting Fabric. I love the contrast of Men’s fabric and girly ruffles. I zig zagged the edge of the ruffle to appeared as frayed.
These next two dresses are truly near and dear to my heart. I have been a dancer since I was a child. Even today I’ll crank the tunes and have a dance party with my kids. I recently made a custom order for an all black version of my very first pink/black Ruffle dress and immediately thought of Swan Lake. This inspired me to bring back a fresh updated version one of my originals as well as the new variation.
(flashback – my first ruffle dress)

Are you ready for Fall?? Ok, some of you may not be. Especially if you lived back east and had to live with that crazy winter. After all it did get into the 60’s here in So Cal for a while, ‘wink’. But since Fall is really all about the clothes, I’m really excited to finally be able to start sharing my Fall Clothing Collection of Leggings, Skirts, Pinafores, Pants (Coming soon) and of course Dresses! I have short and long sleeve styles and most items will be offered in sizes 2T-8Yr.
Drumroll please……Let me introduce you to Part 1 of my release…
I chose Art Gallery’s Arizona Fabric Collection (I am secretly hoping they take this collection off the limited edition line and keep it forever)

The new Knit by Art Gallery is incredibly soft with great stretch and recover. The colors are vibrant and work so well together. What more could I ask for? Everything they touch is just perfection.

Day 5 of the LOL Swing Top Tester Tour
Jennifer from Jennuine Design has created the most adorable top, LOL Swing Top. I mean just look at that back. Racerback with ruffles, YUMMY!
I had my fingers and toes crossed that I would be picked as a tester for this fabulous pattern. My daughter has become very picky and rarely wears dresses and skirts anymore so this was the perfect pattern for us.
Click HERE to purchase
*Sizes Newborn to 12
*Can be made with knit or woven material
*Single Button Closure on woven version
As you can see above, the first top I made was in Knit and below is my Woven Version. I made a size 7 for Miss. T and after a few tweaks in testing it fit like a glove. The Woven Version has a single button closure and the Knit version slips easily over a child’s head. Its a great pattern with easy to follow instruction and clear illustrations.
I just LOVE the back to this Top, It puts the swing in LOL Swing Top! 🙂
The Front has light ruffling at the neckline I can’t thank Jennifer enough for allowing me to test this pattern. I loved her attention to detail and was thankful for her putting in long nights answering all the questions I had. Because we all know we sew at night after we put the kids to bed.
Besides the LOL Swing Top Pattern, another favorite pattern of mine from Jennuine is the Matinée Dress/Top
Jennifer is offering a 20% discount on her new pattern for one week (ends August 7th)
Use code: LOLRelease
Here is the run down for the Pattern Tour so be sure to check them all out!!!
Can you see the butterfly in the picture?
I am so very excited to share the Charlie dress by mingo & grace today. This is mingo & grace’s first pattern and I could not be more thrilled for the owner Farrah! I had the opportunity to test this pattern and I absolutely adore it. By the time testing was done I had already made 3! Yes 3!!
This dress can SWING!
Single Button Back
I love this stylish silhouette.
*Sizing: 12mnth to 12 yr
*Hit at or above the knee
The key steps to get the fitting just right…
Don’t go by your child’s usual size without looking at the Finished Garment Measurements chart. This dress is designed to be fitted at the shoulders and comfortable around the chest (per instructions). For example the dress I made my 9 yr old was a size 7 in the chest and length. The dress fit perfect and she will be wearing it for Thanksgiving (yes, I know I am already thinking about the Holidays).
Here are the details on how to purchase this ADORABLE dress pattern:
1) Charlie will be released exclusively through the Sewing Rabbit’s Pattern Member Site July 1- 14, 2014.
Its a really good deal, for $10 you get 3 patterns and you can cancel the subscription at any time.
2)Charlie will be released through mingo and grace site beginning July 15th. http://www.mingoandgrace.com
