Happy birthday to my lovely, strong, amazing, curious, beautiful daughter, Colette Gaelle!  She was definitely a surprise 2+ years ago…I had a difficult time after I discovered I was pregnant.  I absolutely cannot imagine my life without her and I am so thankful that we are graced by her unique personality & determined spirit.  It is really special to see her strong connection to her siblings, especially the bond she has with Frankie.  I always wanted a sister and I am touched to see their love for one another.

KCW / Spring 2013 / Day Three

The KCW challenge is moving along.  I ended up cutting out a simple dress and getting it all finished in a little over an hour late last night.  I used another vintage pattern and a mod white & gold abstract vintage print.  I am absolutely loving the bow! Frankie and I went on an early morning walk and took some cute pics.  Mod Dress / KCW 2013

KCW / Spring 2013 / Day Two

Yikes!  Tuesday was so busy, I barely finished the dress.  The skirt came together pretty easily and the pleating looks really great.  I hand finished the neck and sleeves and then was so tired that I decided to roll hem the bottom on the serger.  Frankie woke up this morning and was delighted!  After dropping off her older brothers at school, we came home and had a little photo shoot.KCW Spring 2013 - Frankie Dress

KCW / Spring 2013 / Day One

it’s difficult some days to just feed my 4 kids, let alone sew for them! thank goodness for kcw (kids clothes week), the seasonal challenge that really sparks the creative fire.

for day one i decided to delve into my stash of vintage patterns and found this lovely mccall’s gem to sew for my 3 year old daughter, frankie.
