Audrey’s Closet

Audrey loves getting all dressed up and showing off different fabrics. Check back frequently to see what she’s in to next!

~~~~~~~~

Fall starts tomorrow and Audrey isn’t quite ready to give up on warm weather clothes. We picked out a few patterns and fabrics that help us both ease the transition a bit more smoothly. What do you think?  The camera caught it all and we have tried to make a slide show for you to see the process. Let us know what you think. m

Another great outfit!

Audrey is ready for a celebratory Labor Day weekend. She decided it called for a blouse of Red Flowered 100% Cotton Voile, 52″ wide. Her darling retro skirt with frog details is constructed of a Kyoto Red Linen, 50/50 poly/rayon blend, 58″ wide.
Since she enjoys options she has 3 different patterns to choose from also: Sew Chic (Don’t forget Laura Nash is coming!), Petites Plus and Colette. We always have the thread, zippers and buttons you need to complete your perfect outfit!

Before Charlene went off to the 2012 Passion For Fashion competition in Novi, Michigan she asked me to help her do a test run by giving her an idea for an outfit she could do in a weekend from conception to completion. She used fabrics and trims from Sew And Sews Place. Here are the links to what she came up with. What a beautifully creative mind and talented seamstress we have in our community!
