Carolina Sweetheart

This is the first Terra's Treasures Pattern that I have ever used. This dress is fully lined and a fairly simple sew. It is a shift style dress and it turned out fairly cute especially on the little ones. I found that in this case, I did not love the dress on the Creative Princess. I am sure I she will be wearing it this summer but it likely won't be a favourite.

I do love the fabrics that she chose and have a shirt out of them is so fresh!

Wonder Girl!

I don't know if have heard but the girls 'round here absolutely love Wonder Woman! So when Kymy at Everything Your Momma Made posted this pattern all I could see was Wonder Woman Pants! Say hello to the Freestyle Harem Pants! They have the option to be capris or shorts as well and are super cute as both of those!

I spent a serious amount of time on these and reverse appliqu├ęd those stars on. I love the end result and so does the Creative Princess! They are a fun, comfortable pants that make a statement (but they don't have to!)

Pattern Specs:
Sizes: NB-18
Fabrics: knits
Difficulty: Confident Beginner

I totally love these pants! They are also available in ladies sizes in fact, EYMM goes from XS to 5X. Go check them out here!

A Rose by any other name...

I know, I know...this seems like a lot of dresses for the Creative Princess lately but she loves them and wears them to school and church pretty regularly. This is especially the case with the nicer weather finally making an appearance. 

Besides, this dress is is the Brueram Dress by Sofilantjes. I know what you are what? Well, Brueram is Heather is Latin! Who knew, right? Well, apparently someone did!

I am delighted with this know why? It used up more fabric from my stash, we'll talk about that later and I learned more about sewing on this one!

It's hard to see it here but I learned about under stitching and finally took a chance and did some shirring! I also had a little fun and lined the bodice with hot pink. My friend likened it to a surprise inside a purse. She was delighted and I think the Creative Princess likes it too! (She's already worn this dress wasn't a hard sell!)
