Introducing the Umbrella Dress

I am back to work on my third design, which I call the Umbrella Dress. It has fantastic twirl appeal and does not use a lot of excess fabric. I am not totally satisfied with the design yet, so it will probably have some more variations before it actually goes into print. It is also very simple to make.

I was able to get Pearl out of the house to model this one for me; however, Chloe liked it a lot, so it will be her dress.

Good at photograpphy and sewing no fair!;)

the sun was SO intense the day of my wildflower photos there was not a lot of post processing I could do to them. It was a gorgeous day and SO bright.
