Sew Caroline has 3 lines with Art Gallery Fabrics and is well know for her bright, cheerful color palette and Chalk and Paint is no exception. I have been waiting on pins and needles (get it?!!) for this line since Fall Quilt Market. I love the bright colors and large scale floral prints along side bold graphic prints.

We had a chance to go to QuiltCon last weekend so I decided to bring Miss. T with me so she could see the what the world of sewing is all about. She wore this and Oh-Man was it a hit! People were asking  where they can get the Fabric and Skirt!

I used Violette Field Threads Allie Top Pattern with the Lavinia Reversible Skirt Pattern.

I also had the honor of making two dresses for Chalk and Paint Lookbook…

The dress above was is a new pattern coming soon by Violette Field Threads called Madison!

I made Madison with the following fabrics:

Short Lines Mist

Sprayed Blooms Bright

Aerosol Stipple Blush

Short Lines Burst

Fall Edition Part 2-Neither the Hummingbird nor the flower wonders how beautiful it is…

Hello Beautiful,

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.

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.
