Surprise, here I am at the top of your blog roll!! I know, it doesn't happen very often :0
I always go to post something and before you know it I'm reading everyone else blogs and it's the middle of the night...again...
So before I get sidetracked....again... I want to thank everyone for the Sew Love Christmas love! The shop is doing well and I've sold out and restocked a lot already. It's been fun and I'm getting a lot of ideas for next year too. And remember those sets that I mentioned a couple posts ago...I was going to list a bunch every Monday??? I know, I listed them one week and then with two busy shops and half of us with the flu, well you know how that goes! I do have more though and am listing them as soon as I'm done with this post. I think I have 8 or 9 that I will be listing. They will be priced to sell!

I've managed to fit in a little sewing this fall but realized I never shared my summer sewing, so here are a few pictures of some things I made this summer.
It's easy to guess what my favorite thing to sew is :)
Here's a dress for my niece Halle, modeled by our Lili using a mix of prints from Alexander Henry, Jennifer Paganelli, and Anna Maria Horner and the "Frida" pattern by Patty Young.

A sundress for Emma using the Mezzanine fabrics by Patty Young and my pal Julie's "Little Bow Chic Dress" pattern.
Love the bow in the back and by the way, this pattern is super simple to make, perfect for the beginner!

A halter for Chloe using the Summer Soiree prints by Paula Prass and Amy Butler's Halter pattern.
Love how the keyhole matched up with the "nosegay" in the fabric. Isn't it great when you plan something and it actually works out!

That's it for now, have to run and list those sets! I'll try not to stay away so long next time :)
