Sometimes simple is just better. If you have really lovely fabrics, you can let them do all the 'talking' and pull back on the design complexity factor. Case in point: Here's a simple tiered skirt, inspired by one a friend of mine made, (Debbie of la*tee*da*kids) and in this case just plain pretty because the fabrics work well together. One of my all-time favorite lines is Heather Bailey's freshcut, she really nailed the color palette on that line and hence all things made with Freshcut look fabulous. All I did was add a little scalloped eyelet edging because I thought the fabric could pull off that little bit extra, shabby chic kind of thing. Now I need a matching top - anyone know a great source for cotton batiste?
Then a little black and yellow action with this aptly named Taxi fabric from Timeless treasures. I have always liked this color combo and considering this is my second project using this fabric, I guess I like it alot. The dress is TINI from Farbenmix which is a very easily constructed peasant dress. Great for spring.
Meanwhile, there are new Valentines custom listings in the Trillium shoppe. I am remiss in not mentioning these before now - my apologies.
