oooh, can't wait for that tutorial! such a great idea.


Super cute!


Look at your BEAUTIFUL girl! I especially LOVE the photo with her reading Fairyopolis with those dirty little toes - it's a picture of your Ava but it could be a photo of my Ava - she's always reading that book!

I adore the skirts - I want to learn how to sew JUST so I can use your gorgeous fabric.


Love the ruffles. Too cute.


Ohhh, I love her sweet skirt! Nice job! Can't wait to see your pattern! I love simple things like that! Thanks for sharing your lovely work and gorgeous photography with us!

You are too much....!!! I love your photos you are such a natural and ruffled skirt sooo


They're very, very cute! Can't wait to see them out of lots of different fabrics too.


I don't blame you - those skirts are too cute! My 6 yr old would be all over that!! If I made her one, I'd have to make many more.

Love, love LOVE it!!!


Love that skirt! Totally cute! I have fallen hopelessly in love with your fabrics. But, when I contacted my rep at Westminster/Free Spirit, several of the different patterns I wanted to order are backordered until the end of the year. Boo for me - but good for you!;)
I will just try hard to be patient!


So adorable! I LOVE your fabrics!


I like it! The pattern, the fabric...absolutely perfect! Your fabric is so versatile -- I'm contemplating making bedroom drapes out of it...


Oh my this skirt is too adorable. I cannot wait to see how it was made (and hopefully how easy it was! I've had 3 sewing mishaps lately, I need an easy project!) Beautiful, beautiful!

I love the skirts, and my girls and I thoroughly enjoy "Fairyopolis". What a magical book.

I am so excited! A tutorial on the cutest skirt. I think I will be making some for my 3 year old b/c she loves to twirl. I'm going to snatch up some of your beautiful fabric to make them with too.
