Lavish Fabrics Dresses

 I have been eyeing the Lavish line of fabric by Katarina Rocella for months, and when I saw it at Raspberry Creek Fabric, I grabbed two prints to make my girls some dresses.

Sommer Romper with fabric from Organic Cotton Plus

Disclosure: This fabric was provided to me at no charge by Organic Cotton Plus in exchange for my review. The opinions are my own.


I love trying out fabric from Organic Cotton Plus. The navy fabric I used for this romper is probably my favorite that I've tried from them so far. I love the print, and it's so soft! There is also a similar print that I really wanted to try that looks like it's from the same line. It's called Fox in the Foxgloves.


My daughter loved it too! She said it was really comfortable. I'm glad she likes it, but I'm a little jealous! I'd love to have something made out of this fabric for me.
I think the contrast fabric I used for the yoke is the same line. It felt a little different to me-I didn't think it was quite as soft as the navy fabric-but it makes a good coordinate.


I lined it with a turquoise broadcloth that matched the light blue flowers in the main fabric's print. I also tried some of their lace to add a little trim to the shorts and between the bodice and the contrast yoke. It was a little tricky to add because the lace was so small and thin, but I love the way it looks so delicate and pretty.



You can find links to the supplies I used below. 

The pattern is the Sommer Romper from Violette Field Threads.

Racerback Dress from Hey June

Have you seen the Racerback Dress from Hey June? It's been around for awhile, but it was recently updated. And bonus: it's free.

Easy Summer Pajamas


I was looking for a way to make some pajamas really quickly for my girls, who are dying (or at least think they are) in the heat of the desert that we now live in.

4th of July Ribbon Wands

This was a post last year for The Ribbon Retreat, but I didn't get to post it in time for the Fourth of July, so here it is for this year. We saved these ribbon wands and I'm planning on using them again. This is a project that would be fun for older children to help with.


They would be perfect for waving during a parade or while watching fireworks! We go to a 4th of July parade with my husband's family, and I've seen wands for sale, but they aren't patriotic like this and they are kind of expensive when you buy them at the parade.
