I’ve been gone quite a while! I really want to and will try my best to update my projects here more often. It’s just getting harder and harder with a baby, especially now that he wants to be interactive all the time. I moved back to North Carolina after having my baby. We drove across country when he was only 2 weeks old! …and… we are planning to “permanently” move back to California by the end of the year so I am looking forward to buy fabrics in bulk again next year. :D

Below are some of the projects I made. The cross stitch was a bit painful, pushing the dull needle through the interface backing for the onesies. Love every piece.

I’m due in 2 months and there are so many projects I want to do! Hopefully I can sew after I give birth? If not, I don’t think I’ll have a collection this year except for random pieces. Once I get back to NC, my resources will be nothing! Just thought I share some of the things I’ve made since my last update.

I received all of my sample fabrics and decided I only want to use 3 of the designs. The others did not turn out well. This Spring/Summer, my main goal is everyday basic wear; tops, skirts, and summer dresses. I would like to make shorts, but I feel like it is going to be too hard to have it custom fit, especially for those that are not sure how to measure themselves. I’m not sure if I will keep these designs though. For sure the skirt will be part of the collection, but probably not the dresses. The black floral dress is just something I made in between because I wanted to work on a different type of fabric.

I often get requests for a Hmong inspired reception or wedding dress so I thought I should create a print I can use. Gold is my favorite color to go with white. I’m still debating on the prints below. I would love for it to be printed on chiffon, but I don’t think it’s possible.
