5 Easy Pieces











I received the most gorgeous fabric from Terri the other day called McKenzie from FreeSpirit! I just swooned when I saw the fabulous prints and colors and was instantly inspired to make all kinds of separates that could mix and match together..kinda like my version of Granimals...remember those??? I started off with my "Isabelle skirt" (which will be out soon) then made a gorgeous little peasant style top  my way with pretty puffed sleeves and a beautiful satin bow that ties in the back. Then my latest creation "Cecily" which is so stinkin cute...and so versatile. It's a sweet little pinafore top with ties on the sides...LOVE it!!! That pattern will also be coming soon! Then Abby needed a fun little pair of pants that could mix with these pieces so I whipped up a pair of fun little trousers....finally one of my favorites...a little swing top made from a gorgeous large print which really showcases the design. I also plan on making a black feather wale corduroy bubble skirt and "Brooke" to go with all these cute pieces and maybe a few more as well. I really love that these all look so cute together. After I took these pictures this afternoon and I was going through them I couldn't help but think "Oh my goodness...she is really growing up. Where is my little girl?" BTW...she gave all of these pieces a big two thumbs up and said "Mommy, I really love these...they are Funky!"

Abby certainly is growing up fast!

I enjoyed seeing the pieces together and as separates. I'm hoping you will decide to make a pattern of the swing top.
