"The destiny of nations lies far more in the hands of women, the mothers, than in the possessors of power, or those of innovators who for the most part do not understand themselves. We must cultivate women, who are the educators of the human race, else the new generation cannot accomplish its task."

Remember "Fiona"???


I have received countless requests for this dress that I made early last year. Well, I finally got around to it and I am excited to say that the pattern is almost complete. That's right, another new pattern is on the way! Next up is "Fiona's Dress"! I just love how this little dress can easily change into so many options and the fact that this one is perfect for all 4 seasons. In the photo above Abby is wearing it on it's own with "Shannon's Skirt" underneath in a complimentary fabric. This little dress has buttons all the way down the front which means you can have lots of fun with it. I personally love the layered look and the fact that this dress has so many sweet possibilities. 

Well, here is "Fiona" all ready for Fall. The same exact dress, except this time Abby is wearing it with a feminine little blouse and a pretty ivory skirt underneath trimmed with vintage crocheted lace. I love how feminine this one is. I was actually inspired by one of my old Laura Ashley outfits that I had when I was younger that I just loved. Now, if only all little girls wanted to dress this way.








I just have a few finishing touches to put on this pattern and it will be ready to be released. Finger's crossed it will be within the week. So, start picking out your fabrics for "Fiona".
