There's no other way to describe it! 
It was so much fun to create this set for Miss E!

and look at that SMILE!  Isn't it just contagious?  What a beautiful, beautiful child!

SO, the details!  I used the always dependable, never let it leave the table Simply Sweet Top and Dress and Easy Fit Pants patterns by The Scientific Seamstress to create this adorable set.  I modified the bodice slightly (shortened the top and the bottom) and made the ties so that they would knot through the buttonholes rather than using buttons.

The totally adorable, mix and match with every pattern (garanamil matching easy!) fabric is by the fabulous Jennifer Paganelli!  Can't ever get enough of these two!

New pattern!

I've been away for a few weeks - visiting with my BFF, and tied up with several events.

Since I last posted, life has changed tremendously!  We've gone through the roller  coaster ride that is "move day" in our professional life.  We have learned that we will be transferring from our current appointment, and will have a new home.  We will be moving to Houston at the end of June.  SO, lots of things to accomplish between now and then.  Which includes packing up the sewing room - UGH!

BUT, between now and then, I've got a few things to accomplish!

I've had the privilege of testing a new pattern for Carla (The Scientific Seamstress) in connection with the AMAZING Jennifer Paganelli.  It is the greatest pair of BOXER SHORTS!
I had to make them for myself in a new Jennifer Paganelli print from the So St. Croix line.  The beautiful Genevieve is just GORGEOUS!


(and if you promise not to tell, I'll even post a sneak peak!)
