Living a simple, creative life at a small 1950's motor inn in Bryson City. A Lifestyle Blog.
I made these cute little shorts but they seemed so plain that I added the little lace border at the bottom. I love the lace so much I’m going to have to find more! Don’t you think the shorts look dainty now?
My friend Shari (see Happy Chickadee) and I were discussing fabric the other day and my “made-up” advice was that if you coordinate a bunch of fabrics that don’t match, sometimes it works, because it looks intentional.
Anyways, I just love making these cute Faith tops by Sew Sensible (see my recent spring sewing post for pattern info)! I love experimenting with different fabric combinations. I can’t wait to try some new Heather Bailey prints soon… they are scrumptious. This pink print on the top shown below is from the line Swanky by Chez Moi for Moda Fabrics. This top was made for my friend Lisa’s daughter Elle. I threw in some cute little matching shorts too so she wouldn’t have to find something to match it. If you haven’t checked out Lisa’s adorable line of ElleBows you must! I am sure she already has the perfect little bow for Elle to wear with her new outfit.
