the breakfast dress

Last week, we planned to spend Saturday eating out for breakfast in Laguna Beach, thus a dress was made to mark the occasion. The dress was perfectly fit to hide a happily full tummy, made to frolic in the sand, and still had the dark colors of winter (or maybe it's fall colors), yet flowy enough to welcome Spring...

I am now quite addicted to dress sewing for me, well, I can't be addicted to shopping, so this will have to do. I have a couple more things that I want to try out and I can't wait to find the time to do so. 

In case anyone is wondering, I am working on things for the shop opening as well. I am trying to get a number of items already pre-made and see if this is better for me and my time. I am so excited to show you some new things! Also, my friend and I will be hanging out tomorrow morning at Cafe de Leche in Highland Park. Anyone interested just email me...

And thank you all for the nice comments about my paintings. I was very nervous to share them as I don't consider myself a painter, but I am so encouraged by all of you... thank you!

Have a glorious Monday everyone!!!
