sew sew sew!

...it's all I ever seem to do anymore. This order killed me, a size run of crisp white Sundays Blouses. All that lace, top stitching, and completely unforgiving cotton (it shows every stitch hole....so NO mistakes) Then being stark white on top of that. Luckily, they turned out cute in the end, but I'll NEVER make them again. This is my favorite pic of Devon in her Sundays Blouse (and vintage elephant parade sweater vest) She looks so tiny! I wish that vest wasn't in storage like everything else (so irritating)
...blouses everywhere!!!
This was much more fun, a custom order for our Long Winters nap henley and leggings . The customer wanted a cream or soft pink as an alternative to the grey. I couldn't find any thermal in those colors on our last fabric trip out to LA, but I found this great French Terry and reversed it (loops to the outside) It gave it this cuddly, "chenille" type look. Since the French Terry had zero stretch, I added my cream bamboo rib knit for the contrasts. So she got to have both colors in one. This set was for a size 12-18m, so it's small on Devon... she's small (but not that small)
I used a super cute, floral foldover for an inside detail. A seller on Etsy used it to wrap up one of my purchases :)


  1. Oh goodness gracious...I was just drooling over the grey long winters nap leggings and thermal top BUT, please tell me you are making this color as well for your Etsy shop?

    I NEED:)
    Great great job as usual...you have such a good eye<3

  2. You know what, Emily? I'm not only in love with your daughter, I totally love ALL the clothes you designed and sew too! You are such a talent. Next time if I have a daughter, I'm sure going to stock up her wardrobe with all the clothes you make.

    Devon looks like an Angel in the first pic. Pls help me give her a BIG BIG hug.
