Cutest little country beach dress you ever did see!!!

IMG_4266 (2) 

Now this is screaming country charm!! I found this cute fabric at the used clothing store in my favorite fabric bin! It is not really “my style” but my sister sure likes it!!! (Sorry Cara, but I already promised her she could have it when she comes home from Alberta in May BUT if it doesn’t fit her you can have it!!!)

This fabric was not printed correctly. The border was on the wrong selvage, not with the stretch but against the stretch and so I had to do magic to work it into the design. I cut the border into wedges and sewed them all together to make a “new” border and so I used the rest of the fabric with the stretch going across the body which worked out great!! Sorry if this is confusing those who don’t sew but it’s too difficult to explain without having  a whole chapter on it! lol

This is a flower I had kicking around here for like forever!!! You know, one of those things you keep hanging on to thinking you may use it someday? I didn’t know what I was ever going to use it for and trust me I’ve tried to use it many times for different projects and it just never seemed right…..until now, I think it goes perfectly with the dress and adds just that right touch!


This is ribbon I had bought at La Shoppe a Slu when the store closed and I bought a whole bunch of left over ribbon (Yes I know a lot of you English people can’t pronounce that name! It’s Slu with a french EU  lol )

It just happened to match the flower perfectly!

I suppose I could wear them with some leggings but still, I think a puff of wind would be better!!


How else could I show off the cute little matching shorts I made!!?? lol

Matching nails!


That’s it folks we are at the end. Hope you have a great day!!! :)



P.S. I just bought an old wooden desk/bureau for the bedroom!!! Another refurbish job!!! Yay for me!!! :)))) Pretty busy with work right now with blinds, valances, alterations and window seat pillows. I just find it so funny how people are. We are creatures of habit for sure. In business you can be slow for a while and then all of a sudden everyone is calling you!!??lol
I owned a little video store some years back and it was the same thing, it could be dull all day and then one person would show up and then everyone would just rush in at the same time to rent their movies. I’m sure it happens with most businesses. If only would could pace everyone out... :)  But thank God we have  jobs!!! :) And if you don’t and you need one then I pray that you find a good one!!!
