Look at this beauty, I would have loved a face but sometimes it’s just not a good hair day. This is my old island roots. I love woman of color in brights it brings me back to my homeland. And when I hear a sing songy dialect of the Caribbean islands I am somehow immediately transported to a wonderful time in my life. This color dazzles on this woman and I’m so glad her first choice was brights. Against her skin tone it was just all meant to be. Sara Beth Upshaw of Molly Blossom’s is kicking it up big time in Jackson Mississippi and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing silhouette!! Follow her Etsy shop and website for upcoming releases. Pattern coming soon so stay close. Thanks Sara for a beautiful silhouette. Crazy love fabric found here!!
I say this when I refer to Kathy Hennessy because she is everyone’s cheerleader and runs an incredible group on facebook for like minded sewing gals/guys. What a forum it is and I love to see the relationships and kinship’s that develop out of such a place. She has ground rules and insists that others play fair and she encourages everyone in their passions and pursuits. Her blog the same name as the Facebook page she runs is called Handmade Dress Haven. This is where it gets exciting. Here she does a tutorial on the Crazy Love Dress she created. I love the bib front on this special frock. Follow the tutorial here.
As always thanks Kathy for letting me peek in to your sewing world and sharing the joys!! Love your 6 year old.
Brothers and sisters can now have the Sis Boom vibe . Check out the Hamling’s on this beautiful spring day and you can be sure mama Jeanne made the most beautiful clothes. This just excites me so much to see a bowtie and a shirt all from Sis Boom patterns as well as the Marissa and the Vanessa. Gorgeous family she’s raising and I get to be the beneficiary of Jeanne’s talents. So thanks Hamlings for this beautiful portrait on facebook so grateful to see you all! And on top of all that beauty the Scientific Seamstress has 30% off all Sis Boom patterns so use code TRYSCI call her nutsy!!!!!! That is a great deal!
