New Fabrics!

Just as promised, here are two pictures of the newest fabrics in the shop.

These "skinny" piques are absolutely luscious! You have to come in to feel just how soft they are. It's perfect for a sweet little dress or short outfit. I am planning a two piece Sunday outfit in the green for my little guy.
Two new colors in seersucker: classic red and a beautiful blue. These are perfect for shorts, jumpers, swimsuits, just about anything summer! If you haven't seen the precious little girls' swimsuit in the latest Sew Beautiful, you must get a copy. Seersucker is perfect for the pattern. We also have pink, lt. blue, and stripes.
Back in Stock
We have the Figgy "Ofelia" pattern back in stock that Darby featured on her blog. It is a wonderful beginner pattern that I have posted before. If you didn't get yours, please call or email us to reserve your copy!
Happy Sewing!
