I used the same fabric that is on the hem and a really interesting square-ish lavender button.
I have so many fabric combinations running through my head! And I want to make these flowers in every color possible!
Updated to add the newest Twirly T's!

If you could see my sewing studio you would see that I am being overrun with shirts. I have a massive quantity in many colors and thought I would play around with a new design. I just did one last night as my very first tester and used fabric I wasn't too crazy about. That dress itself looks good but I still don't like the fabric. Nevermind the fact that I sewed the skirt to the wrong side of the shirt! If you don't look too close you can't tell it's inside out. :P
I just completed another one tonight with fabrics that I do like. I also tried a different design.
So, I want to hear from you! Please leave me a comment with your thoughts on my dress. I just have to say. I put the 1st dress on Alayna really quick tonight before I put on her pjs - and she twirled and twirled. It was seriously the cutest thing because she never does that. I will say it is a good twirling skirt. :)

I just had to add a couple little surprises on the back of the outfit.
And a sweet grosgrain belt finishes it off.
You can click on any of the pictures to get a larger view - and you can click here to see the listing for the shirt. I haven't decided if I will offer the complete outfit in the shop or not. But I do have several shirts that would make excellent gifts for Valentine's Day. It's not too far away!

The cool weekend garnered lots of shoppers for us all. The turnout was pretty good and I really enjoyed the event. I was a last minute addition so I was wedged in the corner by my friend Anita. But we both made good use of the space and got to chat during the down times.
I recently received a large shipment of pants for making some more beautiful outfits. You can see all new additions to Alayna's Closet in the slideshow on the right sidebar.

All of the facts aren't exactly right, ex. I have only been avidly sewing for 4 weeks as opposed to 4 years, but Alayna's Closet is in the paper! I've been feverishly getting ready for the show this weekend and it is going to come down to the last hour.

I have a not so secret crush on Chris Isaak! *swoon*
I loved being pregnant and am sad I won't be ever again.
My most favorite car that I've owned was my first brand new one. A 1997 blue green chameleon Pontiac Firebird. That car was hot! *channeling Paris Hilton when I say that*
I am addicted to ChapStick!
In high school I wanted to be a police officer in my hometown.

And as I mentioned - I am broadening my horizon and trying my hand at clothing. Today I finished a couple of flouncy skirts. I ordered a pattern for a couple different designs but I was antsy to get started.
So I did both of these freehand. I have a couple of kinks to work out before I start offering these in Alayna's Closet. But in the meantime - my little girl sure looks cute in something I actually made!
