Duchess & Hare Junebug for Minerva

A few months ago, my eldest daughter was helping me peruse Minerva when she spotted this cupcake print on poplin. She HAD to have it and she HAD to have it in a Junebug, because of course, if you have a cupcake fabric, you must have a dress with an apron to go with it!… Continue reading Duchess & Hare Junebug for Minerva

Happy Birthday Peony Patterns!

To celebrate Peony Patterns' first birthday, I thought I'd whip up an Ivy Dress for my youngest in this adorable cupcake poplin from Minerva!

All About Pre-Reading! {Review}

We have used All About… Continue reading All About Pre-Reading! {Review}

I knew it would make a perfect big swishy dress for my eldest, but then after it arrived, she decided she hated it. Black polkadots, apparently, were not acceptable. Anyways, after I offered… Continue reading Polkadot Periwinkle Dress & Top for Minerva

Jennuine Design Limone Lounge Set {Pattern Release}

I had the opportunity a month or two ago to test these fabulous shorts from Jennuine Design! Funnily enough, I was sorting through my youngest daughter's bins of clothing just the other day, and discovered a Tea collection pair that was super similar! So I guess you can say I am very drawn to this… Continue reading Jennuine Design Limone Lounge Set {Pattern Release}
