Another Smocked Easter dress preview

Sorry to have been away from the blog so long, I have been super busy sewing! I only have one, maybe two spots at the most for custom Easter orders. I am almost fully booked.
As promised, here is another sneak peek of another custom order. It is the Beatrix Potter set from my website but this one is done in blue. I really think I like the blue even better than the rose!

I should be able to post another set tomorrow. Have a great day!

Easter preview

Here is a sneak peek at a custom smocked and embroidered Easter dress for an order that I received.
I think the colors are turning out gorgeous...

I can't wait to finish the dress so I can see the final product! :o)

Ian your heart out :o)

For those of you who do not follow golf (which is practically everyone lol), Ian Poulter is a golfer from Great Britain. Ian is known for his flashy attire. Due to this, he is my son's favorite golfer. Ian even has his own clothing line.
You can find a photo of him here:
Well, a year or so ago, I picked up some Union Jack twill fabric just for fun. Well, for over a year, my son has been begging me to make him some golf pants out of it. I just could not bring myself to do it. This is some LOUD fabric!! Well, after much persistence and much reluctance, I broke down and sewed him some "European golf trousers!" They actually did turn out pretty neat........if you can get over the print!! Exhibit A:

Check out the welted pockets.....if you can find them :o)
It actually was pretty fun to actually sew something for my son......I haven't been able to do that for years.
Well, back to smocking. I'll have some previews of my latest projects soon.
Have a great day!!

Personalized BOYS rompers!

I have been making these as shower gifts for friends and they are a HUGE hit! Especially when the baby is named something unique. So I decided to list a few at etsy.

Have a great day!
