My Mom's friend told me about a lady who sells fabric and patterns out of her house not 5 minutes away from my very own! And not just any fabric, but Amy Butler fabric. I let the girls pick out their own for a dress. Little bit choose the above, and I'm using the above Oliver + S pattern. I think it will look darling and can't wait to make it.


Red chose this pretty pink. It's not what I would have bought, but she loves it and wants a skirt out of it. I think I'm going to make another Redondo for her.

My Mom is trying to call in a favor and get us a week at the beach. We're going to take the girls and our machines and have a week of sand and sewing fun. I hope it will all work out.

that sounds so fun Amy! a girls week away sewing by the beach - I really hope it works out for you.

And love the prints the girls choose, and how great you didn't have to pay for postage and can now get new fabrics quickly - or is that just dangerous lol

Do promise to post up the finished projects :)

And to that you said "mom, I would love for Nicole and Sadie to come with us, she really needs to learn to sew" am I right? J/K I do love the fabris that the girls picked, they have great taste :)
