We love our Betty Ann pattern named for a beloved mentor of mine. This Maxi looks so terrific on Jeanne Hamling, one of our long time testers daughters. Look at the shoes my friends , that’s what caught my eye!!! I love her confidence and pride in wearing one of mom’s creations!!! All of Jeanne’s kids are beautiful and I had the pleasure of meeting this one Miss Lily out in Utah!! Folks I’m sorry I won’t be at quilt market but I will be thinking of all of you!!! This pattern can be found under patterns on this site as well as many other pattern platforms! This fabric is part of our Crazy Love collection and can be found here. Thank you Glam Fabrics on Etsy.. In Australia we found some here. Thank you Fabric Traders AU
So there you have it , a pretty girl in a pretty handmade dress and coordinated shoes..We love you Lily!!
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.
