Lovely in lace

Don't you love a beautiful floral and lace palette? I mean it has taken off in pretty much every genre it's ever presented in. I mean, look at the Shabby Chic phenomenon. Decoholic.com had a whole feature on shabby chic palettes here http://decoholic.org/2013/02/28/habby_chic_living_room/. This is one of the pictures from that feature.

Personally, I wish I lived in some sort of house with character and had all kinds of frilly rooms like this. *Sigh* In the real world, I get to have some cute, but a lot of compromise with three other people that live here. Which is why in designing my clothes, I get a lot of leeway with my fabric and trim choices. For the most part, she likes most everything I make, so I am lucky there. I know a lot of you moms out there have to fight with your tweens if you make them clothes. I do know her general style, which means I do usually hit the ball in the park. Like today, I got to mix a vintage feel outfit with some florals and lace, and she looked beautiful. 

The pants from today's outfit are an upcoming pattern from Aivilo Charlotte. She has a whole section on her Etsy store dedicated to tween patterns here https://www.etsy.com/shop/aivilocharlotte?section_id=13225211. She also has kids patterns, adult patterns and gorgeous bag patterns. Lisa is the owner/designer of Aivilo Charlotte and is absolutely wonderful to work with. These pants aren't out yet, but when they are released they will have three bottom finish options - double ruffle with bias trim, single pleated ruffle, and a tall ruffle. And they are super cute. The top in this picture is a 3/4 sleeve peasant top that is from Whimsy Couture. This particular pattern has a dress option as well. You can find it here https://www.etsy.com/listing/116840023/on-sale-30-off-whimsy-couture-sewing?ref=shop_home_active. They are also on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/WhimsyCoutureSewingPatterns

Without further ado, here is today's gorgeous outfit!






Tomorrow is a half day and also is the start to the Fall break which means its a spirit wear day. But, stop in tomorrow as I will have some pictures of her Halloween Costume which was pretty fantastically awesome if you ask me. I'm only slightly biased.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words! Im also very happy to see more and more tween designers. A lot of our current designers are moms of little ones. I think as they continue to grow, sizes on patterns will too! I am planning on working on a compilation of tween pattern designers for the blog so visitors can just click that link and be taken to the listings and Facebook pages of tween clothing designers. Thats on my list of things to do in my "free time" ;)
