Two trends I'm seeing in swimsuits lately are flounces and high waisted bottoms. Miss 6 recently declared she HAD to have a bikini. (Cue Daddy's immediate "NO!" haha).

Now for some cuteness for the baby! Ok, fine, "the toddler."

Skater would be a perfect match for it!… Continue reading Boo! Designs Skater Dress – Gathered Waist Hack

It's SWIM season again! I *love* sewing swimsuits - it is so rewarding! (Here's last year's swimsuits!). This week I was chosen to sew up a swimsuit for my daughter with "strike-offs" (sample custom fabric) from both Beanpop Fabrics and RP Custom Fabrics. When each company realized they had created a print that would look… Continue reading Beauty-ful Boo! Swimmers
