I love to sew, which also means that I have a love for fabric. Some women collect shoes, and some people collect dishes, but I love the entire creative process of sewing children’s clothes. The moment I see a fabric I like, I immediately have a vision of what the finished product is going to look like. Needless to say, when I was introduced to this gorgeous collection of fabrics through my United Notions rep, I just had to grab it. Take a look for yourself and you tell me what you think.
First of all, the colors. I love the browns and various shades of pink in this collection. They remind me of a baby’s nursery. The brown in this fabric is subtle and soft, and so are the pink tones. Honestly, I would love to have something in this print, or maybe they just remind me of that gorgeous dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman.
The classic flutter dress includes lots of details, and a sash that ties in the back. The skirt is tiered, which means it has a lot of fullness.
The baby bubble includes straps that button in the front for comfort and easy access. It includes a triple layered ruffled bum for lots of cuteness. The back bodice is elasticized to allow for comfort, and many more adorable details including that lovely big bow in the front.
I love these bubbles, because you can slip them on in the winter months as well as the summer months. I always had my daughter running around in tights and a onesie during the cooler weather, so adding a bubble or a dress was just part of our routine if we left the house. In the summer she would usually waddle around the house in nothing but a diaper, and again a bubble or romper was easy to grab when I needed to take her out the door. Easy. That was how I liked it. So I hope you like it too.
