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.
