sophie and lili : capsule collection

HELLO dolly!
Aren't they cheery?

I have known Jennifer of Sophie and Lili for a few years now! She was one of the first customers of my etsy store - back when I was on etsy! (I just looked, December 2007!?!) When I recognized the S&L name, I was so honored!!! I was brand new to the childrens fashion scene and she was so friendly and helpful! When I look back, it's actually kind of rare to find that :/ Thanks for being so sincere.

Fast forward to 2011.

Ya'll know I sew knits. But lately I've been playing with regular cotton (I don't even know what it's called) but it has little or no stretch, and it's gotta be soft cotton, not itchy decorator cotton. I asked Jennifer if she had any extra pieces of fabric with her sweet doll prints, and I made these two pieces for her girls! (These are not for sale or order.)

We're working on a little collection, sizes 12m-5T, as always one-of-a-kind, and *hope* to have these ready to buy before the holidays.
Please sign up for my emails! This mini-collection, as all other dresses, are shared this way.
And make sure to select your sizes!

Also, you'll want to check out the Sophie and Lili store!

panda 2.0

This panda dress is not her first courtneycourtney panda piece :P
What are the odds!

I made these from a vintage sheet I found, see another panda dress and read about this here:

hearts in australia

Over the years I've kept any sizable scrap of fabric that I've silkscreened on; I love how the small pieces graphically make a larger impression.

What a cute little family!!! Thank you!!!

retro animals : panda

I recently found this retro animal bedsheet at the thrift store (which kicked off a whole new obsession....) and have been enjoying incorporating the animals into my dresses.
There's bunnies, squirrels, raccoons and pandas!

If you don't know already, I'm a KNIT girl, so using a sheet is a little bit of a stretch to me (hee hee), but I'm learning. I think they turned out pretty nice!
Sign up for my emails and you'll see more retro animal dresses in your inbox:

Miss Serenity is styling (as usual!) in her panda flutter sleeve!
Thank you!!

owl long cardigan

Kristin of klt:works sent me this oops owl cardigan a while back!

I lengthened it by adding fabric from a women's dress, you know the type of jumper that has buttons down the entire front center!
Love it for layering!
