The Grayson Leigh Dress

Ya'll know something has to be EXTRA special to name it after your children. This little dress is so classy, classic, and lovely, that only one name came to mind.... The Grayson Leigh. You can read about creating this pattern HERE.


The Grayson Leigh dress pattern is available in sizes 12 months - girls 8. 


It's a classic silhouette that will never go out of style. A simple, A-line shift dress, with a button back closure. 
The dress is fully lined, and all seams are hidden, making a professional and comfortable-to-wear finish. 

And...there are NO buttonholes! 

Button-top jumpers are cute, but little girls will love the grown-up style of this big girl dress!
 

Comfortable enough for an afternoon of play, and classy enough to wear your favorite pearls.


The dress is perfect for a monogram, pockets, bows or bling. Whatever you want to embellish with!

(by the way, WHY does my baby look so grown here???)


The Grayson Leigh is an easy-to sew dress. A confident beginner can sew this dress in an afternoon. An intermediate sewist can knock one out in a naptime! Goldilocks loves waking up to a new dress in her closet. She thinks it's magic. 



You can purchase the pattern for instant download 
at Etsy or Craftsy


I hope you have as much fun sewing this sweet and classy pattern as I do. Nothing makes a little girl feel prettier than a new, beautiful dress!

Coming Soon: New Pattern

It's been a little while since I released a new sewing pattern for a dress. Goldilocks loves dresses by Lilly Pulitzer (who doesn't), but spending over $50 a piece on a toddler dress isn't something a lot of us can do every day!

So I worked to make my baby girl a shift dress as CLOSE to a Lilly-style toddler shift dress as possible...and I'm over the moon happy with it!

I let her pick her fabrics for these two, and she did a great job picking classy and sweet prints.




This little shift dress is a classic, never to go out of style.  And no button-top shoulders, so it looks like a grown-up dress, perfect for classy little girls. 


She of course wanted her monogram on ALL of the dresses, and I was happy to oblige. Besides, it's not really hers until it's monogrammed!


The pattern is oh-so-close to being finished. Hopefully by the end of the week it will be available for YOU to sew too!

 How many will you sew for your classy southern girl?

Clemson Garden Flag

It's no secret that we are hardcore Clemson Tiger fans. Our house is decorated appropriately during football season, and our cars are decorated year-round. But we needed something extra. A sweet little pop of orange.

I updated our garden flag.



Using my embroidery machine, and some leftover burlap, I got to sewing. 


I left the edges of the burlap raw, stitching around the edges to keep it from fraying too much. I like the distressed look of burlap outside.


To keep the flag neat, I sewed another piece of burlap to the back, to add weight and hide the stitching from all sides. I think it gives it a more finished look, and the wind doesn't flip it over so easily.


Sweet and perfect. Always saying "Go Tigers!"
