sugar and spice and everything nice
that's what little girls are made of!!
...if you have a little girl
(and even if you don't!)
(and even if you don't!)
you adore ruffles ~
then this is the post for you!!
I have been absolutely swooning
over this outfit!
isn't it just soooo
so farmstyle romantic??
so something I just HAD to have?!
It is from the delightful Eden's Bouquet
swoon worthy web shop that I implore you to visit!
It is like Anthroplogie for children!!
and from the moment your eyes hit those
and you see those gorgeous outfits,
the pictures alone are inspiring ~
but the body adornments are that
of fairytale like clothing
even if you don't have any little ones
you are going to ~ eye spy with your little eye ~
to wrap up in these outfits!!!
I'm just sayin`
I've been eyeballin` this outfit from the moment I saw it
as I have been on this romantic farmstyle quest
and noticing that as of late
everything I'm drawn to, fits this criteria:
romantic farmstyle : check
actually everyday wearable/useable : check
(homemade, organic juice popsicles are simply a must on the farm, in the summertime!!)
looks charming hanging on the clothes line: check
(yes, I think about these things!!)
have a sweet little girl to put this on: hhhhmmmm
my sweet girl is by no means little anymore
and is at the age that would just simply would not be caught dead in this kinda outfit
(and this is kinda funny to me ~ cause I'm long gone outta that range
but I'd so wear this,
in my size,
on the farm
to feed the chickens and bake pies and gather me rosebuds...)
as I was saying
I simply HAD to have this outfit
I decided that my neice
was going to wear this outfit!!
let me introduce you
this is KiKi, my neice
(and my dear Mom, you already know)
KiKi ~ Mom,
(they say "charming to meet you all!")
so there I was ~
have a sweet little girl to put this on: check
already to click away
no longer available...
being the kinda` girl I am
this little snaffu wasn't going to detour me from having that outfit!
(do people say snaffu anymore??)
as you may have guessed ~
off to fabric store I go!!
when I want something bad enough
I WILL seek
until I FIND!!!
what do you think??
isn't it just so
would you like to know what pattern I used?
just in case you were in need a weekend project??
(what? it could happen?!!)
kwik sew 3673
if this simply isn't "kwik" enough
and let's say the closest fabric strore to you
might as well be in Massachusetts
and you're from Arizona
(just go with me here!!)
I've got you covered too, dear reader
(`cause I'm good like that!)
for your instant gratification
(no, seriously, it's a downloadable pattern! which means you could start whipping this baby up in like the time it takes you to dig out your pretty fabric!!)
just visit here for the top:
and here for the ruffley bottoms:
at an etsy shop called Romeo and Mae's.
did you get all that???
thank you for stopping by!
I do hope that you enjoy visiting Eden's Bouquet and Romeo and Mae's
and may you be as inspired as I was :)
