Introducing: the Princess Charming Skirt

I asked Addy to name this skirt and she named it Bob. I think we need to work on her name choices. I veto'd and now presenting the Princess Charming Skirt....

It got it's name from the charm pack - a group of 5" x 5" squares of fabrics in a variety of coordinating prints. I absolutely LOVE working with charm packs becuase what better way is there to get a feel for different fabric prints and styles than working with a dozen or more different varieties in a single project? Also? I love that I don't have to cut. And I don't have to coordinate fabrics myself.

So the Princess Charming skirt it is!!!

These skirts are different from a lot of my stuff because they are not sized to fit other than the waistband. They are sized to grow with your child over a few years. As you can see, this dress on Addy is pretty long. She should get another 1-2 years out of it, for sure.

Here are just a few of the fabric groupings that I would love to see made into this skirt:

And my absolute favorite not-yet-available but coming-soon group:

These skirts are now available for custom order in the shop.

By popular demand: ruffle pants!

ruffle pants, originally uploaded by steppingonlegos.

Well...not quite pants. Capris. They could be made into pants or shorter capris but, for Addy, I like this length and so does she. I just love how she twirls and spins and dances in these pants. She calls them skirts because of the ruffles around the bottom and how they flow and twirl just like a skirt.

This week I'll be posting this outfit as a custom in the shop. I haven't offered a tiered twirl knot dress before but I love them so much and so will your little girl! They are so full, so twirly and so much fun. I'll be offering them alone and as an outfit with the ruffle pants.

I also have a new surprise listing for this week. Keep an eye out on the blog and the shop for more details. It's a super fun new item that you will just adore!

A new skirt!

I've been working hard and making great progress. It's been a really fun few weeks working with some really amazing and awesome customers. One customer totally took a chance on me and sent me a brand new pattern to try - for Easter no less - for her three girls. It also gave me a chance to work with the Farmer's Market line of fabrics which I'm totally addicted to. They are so fun to work with and so super soft. After working on her pieces, I just had to get some fabric from that line and make Addy a skirt from the collection. This is a great skirt and will be my newest listing in the store. Isn't it fun?

Toward the end of this week I hope to share with you a few pictures from some satisfied customers! I've wrapped up my sewing for the Easter holiday and everyone who is waiting on an order should have their packages in the mail tomorrow. I'll be listing a few things in the shop in the next few days, as well.

Thanks everyone!
