Capri & Halter Sets

There are talks of a few of us doing an outdoor craft festival in June. And Dana is hoping to be opening the doors to Doe Hill Decor in the next few weeks. So, I'm a busy making my sewing machine hum and making the rounds in search of vintage fabrics, pins & buttons. It was time to branch out from the size 6-6x that I'd perfected since my girls are those sizes & I can make them try. I was eyeing up a toddler at the store today trying to see if this number was about her size. It started as a 3T but I do all French seams for comfort and it's looking more 2T. This Ralph Lauren fabric is every fabulous color - pale aqua, rich & dusty roses... I paired it with lots of eyelet and trim from an old house dress. And this is my take on the pillowcase fashion statement. Fabulous five inch eyelet trimmed a pillowcase. And now in fun on these capris - size 5T this time. Not red, not red-orange. Just my cell phone camera screwing up the color. This is really a vibrant orange and yellow number. Someone tell me I'll stop regretting that $25 piece of fabric at the antique show yesterday. Waaaaaaaa. I want it.

I always remember the great things I DIDN'T buy. They haunt me!

Oh my! Those are so cute!
I love the colors in the first set.

And yes, I've regretted not buying some fabrics before.
Although you may not come across the exact print again, there's usually another pretty piece waiting for you at the next show and it might even be cheaper!

I hope you get to do the craft festival this summer. I'll be interested to see how it goes, I've never done one before.

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plu...
