New Product Launch: Maxi Sundress

Thanks to the imagination of my clients, I've ventured into another new area: ladies wear! Kristal asked if I could make her a casual sundress that could go from the beach to dinner with just the addition of a few accessories. I think her request was somewhat fueled by frustration for my lack of 'cute boy things' in the shop - but either way, I was excited to get to work on it. Kristal picked out these Anna Marie Horner coordinates from the website of a great little quilt shop in Columbus I got to work.! I think it turned out fantastic!
My favorite part of the story is a couple days after the dress was finished and delivered, I got an email from Kristal's husband telling me how much they both loved the dress and how beautiful he thought K looked in it (awww!). He wondered if I could make another one in time for her birthday at the end of July. We collaborated on the fabrics, I got to work and we were able to pull off a great birthday surprise with this dress:
Happy Birthday again, K! I think you look great in these!
