Beach portrait dress....

This little dress set was made for a precious little customer's trip to the beach. It is a two piece set consisting of a dress and pantaloons. The dress has a swiss embroidered hemline and angel sleeves (my favorite). It also has a few cast on roses embroidered on the bodice. I hope her photos turn out great! :O)

Tierred, Smocked dress

I loved these shabby chic florals so much that I decided to use all 3 of them in the dress :o).

I smocked it with a geometric design.

I added some lovely battenburg lace to the hemline to complete the look :o)

We will be heading back to the TPC Sawgrass golf tournament tomorrow. I hope we get to see Ian again! :o) Have a great weekend!

Golf dress....

Those of you who follow my blog might remember that last year, my son got to meet his favorite golfer, Ian Poulter, at the TPC in Sawgrass. Ian was so kind to my kids. This year, I decided to make Ian's little girl a dress in honor of her daddy. I was able to give it to him yesterday when we went to watch the TPC practice rounds. He was so kind and appreciative. He signed his own glove and gave it to my son. I thought I would share a photo of the little dress I made. It was seersucker, smocked at the waist and appliqued along the hemline with a golfing scene featuring Ian, himself! I hope he wasn't insulted.......he was not the easiest thing to applique! Ian is known for his tartan trousers, so I made him wearing some on the dress.

The bodice of the dress had little golf ball buttons.

Here is a closeup of the applique.
Ian always wears white sunglasses and a visor, so that is how I stitched him.
It was such a fun day. Ian Poulter has 4 fans for life in my family. :o)
Have a great day!

boy's romper...

This was just a fun little gift that I made for a friend. I really like how it turned out though. I like making a white collar and white sleeves to give the appearance of a jon-jon with a shirt underneath when it is really all one piece.
I have been busy sewing and will have some new things to post soon! I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day!
