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.
