Treadlette Tuesday: Tula Pink Dress

Here's a fun little girls summer dress made by me, Elizabeth!

The fabrics used are both Tula Pink cotton prints, full of saturated colors and hidden magical creatures!

I used McCall's 7111, a super-simple girl's dress with options for length and sleeves. I added a pocket and replaced the neck facing with a bias tape finish.

Aboriginal Australian Prints

New in the store: Australian imports!

We are thrilled to share the work of these Aboriginal Australian artists! Each piece features the artist's personal interpretation of gorgeous natural motifs. The rich, deep colors give a lush feel to these abundant designs.

The 100% cotton fabric is silky and smooth, equally perfect in shirts, dresses, or even quilts!

Be sure to take a look at the card display in the store to read the inspirations behind each design!

Treadlette Tuesday: Nina's Laundry Dress!

Treadlette Nina made this cute, springy cotton tunic dress with a great new novelty print featuring laundry care symbols!

To keep the facings tidy and add a little visual interest, Nina topstitched in a zigzag pattern. It's such a great detail! 

She used New Look 6500, a basic shift shape with a few style options.

This fabric group has some cute coordinating prints on the same theme! We love the tiny irons, too!
