July Party Dress

The birthday girl needed a special party dress for her 5th birthday! Uninspired until the night before her party, I took one of my original designs, the LeleWrap, and transformed it into halter top, backless summer dress. I used white cotton batiste for the dress and a velvet burnout sheer for the sash, underskirt and binding. I love the way it turned out, and so does my princess. :)

Kimono Diaper Set

I'm doing a change up on my blog...Instead of just my musings - which have been nonexistent as of late - I'll be posting projects I'm especially proud of. In my "spare time" I am a clothing designer and the cloth diaper lady of Maui. This set is a sweet cloth diaper starter set for an adorable Japanese baby girl. It's called 'Kimono' in honor of my absolute favorite fabric ever (shown on the cover at right). Included in this set are a half dozen hemp TriFolds, 2 Honu Shells and 2 Hemp Fitteds. There are two more covers to be added to the bunch, but I miscounted my snap supply and am currently stalking my mail-lady. Didn't she pick out some gorgeous fabrics?
