Sweet Strawberry Dresses

Summer is here in Arizona - time to break out the seersucker.

I picked up McCall's 6730 and made it up in several fabric combinations.

It was fun to work on such cheerful designs.

What to do with scraps...


After finishing a sweet blue and green sweater coat I had this delightful table of scraps left over....



I covered a simple wooden bird house ($1.00 at JoAnn Fabrics) and added some embroidery.



Cute!

Woodland Coat with "Fox" Stole


I have collected "a few" rust-colored sweaters and made this coat and then the cashmere "fox stole" to go with it.

Bluebird Coat

How could I resist this bluebird embroidery in my local Goodwill?  It was calling me!



I fashioned it into the bodice of a lace angel coat, and made a pale blue lace dress to go underneath.



Yesterday, Sarah came in and immediately created this look.  Vintage pink daffodil hat, denim shorts and pink t-shirt....


 She is quite the pro at modeling and gave some great poses.  Thank you Sarah!
