Over the Top Modified Ruffle Dress by Blutteryfly Baby Boutique

We've long admired Bee J Stanley, owner of Blutterfly Baby Boutique, because she takes Sis Boom fabric and makes endless ruffles for dresses, rompers, bloomers and more. This momma of 4 works full time with a long daily commute but still finds time to sew. Wow! Give her a follow over on Instagram and Facebook for your daily dose of sewing and color inspiration.

Over the Top Modified Ruffle Dress
Hi!! I’m Bee J Stanley, owner of Blutterfly Baby Boutique.  I am a mother of 4 beautiful children. I have a wonderful husband who supports all my sewing habits, sometimes unknowingly, OK mostly unknowingly…LOL.  I have been sewing little girl dresses now for over 2 years. I’m self-taught from using blogs, internet, YouTube and simply watching others and feel like I’m learning more every day.  I’m always willing to help new sewists with questions and hope to learn some amazing skills in return. Not that I’m the expert, but having someone help with simple things that make everything easier can really help.  I work a full-time job 50 hours a week with a 3-hour daily commute and I do all my sewing on the weekends-  I call it my “play time”. Making crazy over the top modified dresses are my new favorite creations and are so much fun, so I thought I would share a little on how I do that.  Threads and Stitches sent me some fabrics to play with and create this blog, so here we go.  I’ve never written a blog before so I hope you like it and please come share with me once you have tried this- or one of your own over the top designs! I am super excited to showcase one of the best designer fabrics in the world- Jennifer Paganelli’s Sunny Isle Collection, Sis Boom- Free spirit fabrics.

Introducing Sunny Isle

IMG_8836 Sunny Isle, due out in May, is the next collection from Sis Boom and we couldn't be more excited. Sunny Isle can be any island, maybe your favorite that conjures up relaxation and well-being. The sand, water, pool, flip-flops, the striped umbrellas - it all adds to our experience of heaven on earth. Islands are those places that give us momentary pause and helps us shift our priorities and give us new perspective. An island, like our fabrics, give you that ability to unwind. Fabrics elicit the emotion of happiness and help us escape to far-away places. Sunny Isles is the happy place you dream of…wind-blown hair, lots of suntan oil, sand in bathing suits and buckets of sea urchins collected. These are the days that made up my childhood and the place I call home. I love this collection, the red which I tend to shy away from has that classic vintage feel. Let me know your thoughts, I’m listening. I'd like to introduce you to some of the special people I named this collection after. They are old friends and new friends, family and people who help make sure my vision is perfect before it's printed out on fabric and shipped to all my fans around the world. IMG_8834 Alberto, from the FreeSpirit corporate offices, is my very talented friend who makes certain that my designs look their best and achieve the look I am after before they leave North Carolina enroute to Korea for printing. Kat is a very special niece. Dawn is a wonderful Facebook and Instagram friend. I've made great friends on social media over the years and it's always fun to honor our friendship with a fabric in their name. Garen is a quilt designer who I adore and Christie's Quilting Boutique has her quilt kits for sale. Claire is also a very special niece. Jenna, who works along side Alberto at the FreeSpirit corporate offices, is incredibly talented on the CAD machine. She also helps refine the look and feel of my designs for FreeSpirit. Amber is just a wonderful name I chose randomly from my Facebook page for all the beautiful amber souls out there. You know who you are! I hope you have enjoyed this preview. Remember to follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more sneak peeks of the fabric.
