Tis the Season for Tulle

The holiday season means holiday dresses and often that means tulle.
Tulle...I have a love hate relationship with it.
Love how it looks...hate working with it.

But that being said...it seems like we are using it a lot.
So here are a few tutorials we have using tulle that may help you with your holiday sewing:

Fall Trend---Pleasant Pastels

One trend that I keep noticing all over are all of the Fall color schemes that we see everywhere....but turned pastel this year.  And I LOVE it.  Here are some of my favorite things for girls that I have seen this fall.....and what great colors for the Holiday, because they are so unexpected!


Love this pink dress from Mini Boden's Collection


Or lace and sky blue.....from Hebe's children's collection.


Perfect Purple sequins from Mini Boden as well.



Or these pastels from Livly.



Or this killer Dior Dress.....love!!!


What girl's trend are you loving this fall?????

Congratulations Carrie!
 
We will be in touch with you soon to send you your $25 gift card to Michael Levine!  And a big thank you to lowpricefabric.com for supplying all of our gift cards to our departing contestants and our sew along winners!
 
 
 
And with that all the business is taken care of but we just have one more thing we'd like to say before we check out today:
 
And that is another big thank you to all of you who sew along with us.  We are excited every time we see another link pop up in the party.  Our thoughts when we started the weekly sew along were to create a place where everyone could not only share their ideas and talents but also to support and encourage one another.  Each week we love reading the comments you leave to one another and seeing the comradre and the love that you have for one another. 
 
We wish that we had the time to comment on and not just look at and read about all the entries...and some weeks we do...we can't help ourselves...but if we don't always leave a comment we hope that you know we are around and watching and appreciate all of your time and creativity and sharing.  We love this group.  So thank you for helping to create something that we are thankful to be a part of. 
 
Tomorrow we will be back with the upcoming calendar of events...and because it's Halloween you know it's going to involve costumes!
 
See you then!
