Brand New Collection

My little fingers have been sewing more than usual lately trying to finish up the new Autumn/ Winter 2013 Collection. I was able to finalize my fabric choices a few weeks ago, and I have been able to make four dress so far. I have been drawing for weeks now and coming up with different ideas to incorporate in the new collection, and I think the new designs are really sweet and classic.

Fabric for the new collection!

I was initially inspired by the dark yellow mustard color that's been everywhere lately, and I'm determined to find some skinny jeans in that color for me personally. But when I went to the store my choices went in a completely different way. I picked more muted colors that have a sweet softness to them, and I just couldn't resist a couple of patterns with kitties on them!

Rough draft design
I decided to tackle the dress I was most excited to see finished, and it was this one. I knew immediately which fabric choices I wanted and how everything was going to go. It turned out exactly as I had pictured it in my head, you know, because I can't draw as well as I can imagine it! I think I might have squealed in delight once or twice, but don't hold me to it. 
Finished product!
 Glad I'm not the only one who approves!
Big, huge, gigantic changes may be happening soon for the household personally, which includes Papoose. We have a strong opportunity to relocate to Washington D.C. or Montgomery, AL (decisions, decisions), so if either of those options pan out, we will be making a major haul in the next coming weeks. Right when I was planning on launching the new collection, of course! Until then, I will continue to sew my little heart out and keep organized as best as I can!
LOVE my new clothes rack for all my patterns and newbies!
