This new dress pattern comes together quickly and I love the casual, feminine print on the fabric, paired with the satin and shimmer on the brooch. I’ve been keeping the fabric for a while now; it’s a Basic Grey design. The print first captured my attention as scrapbook paper.
See here? Before Gracie was even born, I created this scrapbook page so that it would be ready for her newborn picture when she arrived. Love that pretty blue paper! And I love the mess of Basic Grey papers and tags from the “Blush” line.
The fabric line is also “Blush” and this print is “Admire” in Charmed by Basic Grey for Moda. Which fabric from your stash has been calling you? I’m working on a little number with a different turqouise fabric this week, paired with some purple. I hope it turns out lovely so that I can share it with you soon!
Olivia loves her new dress. Sweet girl, she knew I was sewing her something and the next morning she woke up and said she wanted to wear it to school, sight unseen. Now that’s some trust in your mama! It was really cute over her “jeggings”; I can’t wait to see her wear it without long sleeves and pants or tights.
I have a little more work to do on this brooch. (Don’t you love the little vintage pin on there? I picked that up at my favorite antique shop a while back, too). Anyway, the whole ensemble is so large that the little bar pin on the back doesn’t support it very well. Liv doesn’t care, but it bugs me! Any suggestions??
