Just for fun, I'm having free shipping this weekend in my Etsy shop. All items ship FREE, anywhere in the world! So stop on by and have a look...

I've got several recently listed dresses available and a few more ready to list tomorrow. The pretty floral dress Viv is wearing is ready to go in the mail! And isn't her hat's made by Polly, also on Etsy. We love it!

New Things for Spring!

I'm trying out a new style dress for my Little Whimsies shop on Etsy. I think it is cute and perfect for spring and summer. It is a mini dress, with a pleated skirt. It's got velcro at the back, which is a bit different for me, but the snaps were bulky and left a gap. The finishing touch is a ribbon belt with a sweet flower-shaped buckle. I've a few more fabrics I'd like to make up in this style, so keep an eye out!

Next up - more mod A-lines! By the end of the week, I'll have more mod A-lines ready to put up in the shop. Some new fabrics and some old favorites. I'd better get busy!!

Chloe in Daffodil

Just listed the second three piece ensemble in my Etsy shop! This one is a lovely shade of yellow. So happy and Spring-y! Chloe got the modeling gig for this one; she's one of my favorite girls. I think she looks terrific in yellow!

Tangerine Dream

My design for the Blythe Handmade Collective Easter Parade Challenge is finally complete! I listed this today in my shop, Little Whimsies, and also posted photos on Flickr. I'm really quite pleased with how it has turned out. I will make this design in the orange fabric as shown and also in yellow. I need to finish up the yellow one and get it listed. These will be limited since they take quite a bit of time to make. I also have a very limited supply of the yellow striped fabric and I can't find anymore. I've called every Hancock Fabrics within 100 miles and none is to be had. I've got more belt buckles ordered and on the way from Thailand.

This little outfit was inspired by a memory of an Easter outfit I wore a very long time ago. It was green, but it had the matching dress and hat with a pom pom and it just popped into my head while I was thinking about what to make for this challenge. If you look closely, you'll notice my side glance...just like Blythe!
