I have another back log for you that I’m finally getting around to sharing! I made this dress last fall. It’s such a great transition piece that can be worn casually or dressed up.Click here if you would like to continue reading
I’m on the cusp of taking the ruffle sleeves off of this dress and I need y’all to convince me other wise. I’ve been calling this my football dress and I bet you can guess why…Click here if you would like to continue reading

Every year for my birthday I make myself something special. This year it was all about polka dot maxi-magic!!
I’ve really had my eye on all those trendy vintage-inspired button-front dresses that have been popping up from so many great RTW brands I admire (hello Reformation & Christy Dawn). When Fibers to Fabrics contacted me about a collaboration, I immediately knew that was the look I wanted to go for.
It’s the first post of 2018!!! I know towards the end of last year when I was busy with lots of holiday travel and releasing my first pattern my regular project posts really fell to a lull. SO… in order to make it up to you I wanted to start this year off with a bang!

Y’all…. we’ve actually been having some not-so-hot aka almost-fall-like weather down here! Its been so beautiful I’ve wanted to be outside every day. Unfortunately I’ve also been hustling my little booty off so I haven’t had much outdoors time.

Keep reading for his sweet face and (a lot!) more pictures of this AMAZING dress.
I love a good challenge. From time to time I get friends and family members asking me “hey can you make me this: (insert picture of cute outfit found on pinterest here)?” Often the question is hypothetical, every now and then its serious. When my cousin Tessa sent me a picture of a cute summer dress from one of those horrible cheap clothing sites where everything made in China and asked if she could pay me to replicate it for her honey moon in Greece… I gladly accepted the challenge. Plus.. it had tassels! Keep reading to see the inspiration for this dress and all the details.
