Finally . . . Some Fall Frocks

 Ahhhh . . . it feels so good to be sewing again!

Fall is my favorite season -- especially in the Midwest.  I'm a little later getting started than I had planned this season, so I'll try to get a few things out as quickly as possible before the snow hits.  Wait, I think we already had a sprinkling of snow this week . . .

First of all, I need to apologize for my model.  She LOATHES having her photo taken doing anything except making crazy faces.  And she hates changing clothes unless she's playing dress-up.  Out of the hundreds I shot, these are the only ones that are decent -- and some of them are blurry . . . but I digress.

On to the first outfit of my fall line I am naming O'Meara's Woods.

Our new home has a lovely wooded piece in the back that the neighbor has named after the previous owner -- the O'Meara's.  It has nothing to do with anything, but I kind of wanted to take photos of Mimi in the woods, but this was as far as we got . . .

"Mommy, just peace out.  It will be okay.  Just stop worrying.  Gah . . . . "

So this is the first outfit -- a tunic top in a dreamy blue and cozy corduroy shorts.

Even on a chilly day, Mimi loved the shorts with her tights and boots.

Sweet little butter yellow button in the back.

Two little buttons on the sleeves that are just short enough to keep paint off of at school.

Neutral buttons on the shorts, so your little one can wear them with everything in her closet.

Mimi likes them with a t-shirt.

But this is her favorite look.  Skinny jeans and cowGIRL boots.  Yeeeee hawwww!!!

I'm loving the ruffled collar and pretty pleat in the front.

I have this outfit (the tunic top and corduroy shorts) in a size 2/3 and a 4/5.  This is basically the same as a size 3 and a size 5, but a size 4 girl would totally be able to pull off the 4/5 because of the loose fit (as a 2 would be able to wear the 2/3).  Mimi is in between a 4 and a 5, so this fits her well.

The top and shorts set is $60 plus shipping.

Please e-mail to if you're interested.  I only have 2 outfits -- one in a 2/3 and the other in a 4/5!  First come, first serve!  Please e-mail orders only :)

**Also, I did NOT put pockets on the back of the shorts, but I can if you would like them!

And for you sewing mommas, the pattern for the top is here and the shorts is here.
