After some thoughtful consideration and many compliments from my lovely fans, I've decided to take a few orders for the Nautical Collection. If you would like a goodie or two just drop me a line from etsy or Flickr and let me know what you would like and I'll put up a custom listing for you. I won't be able to make a ton of these, but for those of you who need to feel the wind in your sails this summer, I'll gladly oblige.

Sailing Slacks: Cotton/Linen fabric with red topstitching. Bow and button detailing. Snap closure.


Red and White striped top: Cotton fabric with cotton trim and bow details. Velcro closure.

Sailor Mini Dress: Cotton fabrics with ribbon and button details. Velcro closure.

Halter Mini Dress: Cotton fabrics with button and brad details. Ribbon tie at the neck. Velcro closure.

Sometimes plans just go awry...

I was working merrily away on this nautical collection in honor of the upcoming 2011 BlytheCon when both of my parents got sick and I had to go up north to help out for a month. Now my production window has passed and I'm at a bit of a loss. I'll be donating some of this collection as a gift to the Convention, but I just don't have time to make it available for purchase. Sometimes things just don't work out the way you plan but I thought I'd show it all off anyway. So the shop remains empty while I decide what to do and work on a couple other projects that have taken on more importance since I went up north.

I hope to try my hand at smocking along with some more embroidery in the near future. I'm waiting for a box of lovely fabric that I bought when I was in Michigan helping out the rental units. They had some charming old fashioned types of prints that I just fell in love with. Pictures to come soon....
