April Sewing Challenge Day 4 and last day for the GIVEAWAY!

Here’s my submission for Day 4!  If you’re just joining me, I’ve set a challenge to list one new item in my Etsy Shop for each weekday in April.

This little number is a corduroy and jersey cowl dress inspired by the movie Frozen.  Last year I discovered Girl Charlee, a wonderful online fabric store that specializes in and carries the most lovely knit fabrics!  I have literally purchased a cupboard full of their bright, cheerful, fun fabrics.  The only problem is, I’m not 100% confident sewing with knits yet, so I haven’t sewn as many garments as I’d like although I can make a mean infinity scarf!  Enter this little dress.  The pattern (a Nina Bonita design) is designed for wovens but I really wanted to incorporate some of my stash of knits and knew this gorgeous tie dye cotton jersey would look killer with my blue corduroy.

The design of this dress is very simple–it pops over the head with no need for closures and is a roomy a line shape.  I made a sleeveless version for my daughter and it’s a go-to pick for her because she can put it on herself in a hurry–never mind it’s often inside out but whatever… 🙂  You can check it out on Kollabora, here.

I added a little pocket to hold treasures and a teal blue bias tape hem for an extra pop of colour.Image

And there you have it, my week is done!  See you next week–have a wonderful weekend! xo, Heather

P.S.  Don’t forget that today is the very LAST day to enter my GIVEAWAY on Facebook!  Check it out here:  http://tinyurl.com/mf2bdl8

Giveaway Time!!

In celebration of hitting the 100 sales mark in my Etsy Shop, I’m having a giveaway on my Facebook Page.  One lucky winner will receive a $40 credit to my shop, so go on over and put your name in the hat!  It’ll run until Friday, and I’ll announce the winner next weekend!

And don’t forget, I plan to post a new listing in the shop for every week day in April so stay tuned for that 🙂

Good Luck and have a great week!

xo, Heather

It’s a GIRL!  And she’s waving hello 🙂

I must admit, I’m pretty excited to be having another girl–I really like to make dresses, what can I say!?  In honour of our little girl to be, as well as reaching 100 sales in my shop, I’m thinking of having a giveaway on my Facebook Page.  Haven’t done one yet… What do you think, a store credit, a mystery creation for your little one…?  Lemme know, I’d love to hear your suggestions!

Also, I have a goal of posting one new item in the shop EVERY week day in April!  The shop’s been looking rather bare of late, and it’s time to change that.  (I’m hoping that having this post out there will help me keep on track).  Again, let me know what you think–what do you want to see for Spring/Summer?

Stay tuned…
