Dee Dee Customer Creation

Received this picture today from a customer I haven't heard from in awhile. She made this dress using the Dee Dee Pleated Dress Pattern. Her daughter loves butterflies so this print was great for her.

Here is a picture of the same little girl from a couple of year ago. It's great to get pictures from past customers and see how the children grow.

New Pattern, McKensie, Preview

Here is a preview of my new pattern, McKensie. It's a simple dress but has lots of possiblities to be creative. Using different combinations of fabrics, trims and embroidery can change the look. It is an easy pattern that sews together quickly. You'll want to make several. Since it is a jumper style dress, it can be used for all seasons.

The pattern has been sent to the testers and I am hoping to have it available to purchase by the end of June.
I am very fortunate to have friends with precious little girl's that model for me. She enjoyed the photo shoot and was very cooperative. Isn't she adorable. You may recognize her from the cover of a couple of my other patterns.

Karesa Dress Customer Creations

Just got these awesome pictures from one of the military moms. She used the Karesa Dress Pattern.

She added the wide band along the bottom. This is a great way to use smaller pieces of fabric from your stash. If you don't have quite enough for the length, just add a band of another fabric along the bottom. It is also a great way to add another fabric and some contrast.

She also made her daughter's baby doll a matching outfit. So cute!
I had a little visitor this past Sunday and she was wearing the Karesa Dress I made for her. Enjoyed the visit with her and her grandma (TNu).

Customer Creation to Help a Friend

This customer made these outfits for a friend who's house was demolished in a tornado last week. Fortunately they were in the cellar and unharmed. Her friend wanted camo outfits for her husband's Army basic graduation.

J, is a very busy miltary wife also but made the time to bless her friend with these.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the recent tornados and flooding.

Karen Capri Customer Creation

Another adorable outfit from one of the military moms I've been sending packages too. This mom has been making some great summer outfits for her daughter. Isn't she a doll.

She added elastic at the hem of the pants for a bloomer look instead of capri pants. Great idea, especially for younger children.

Making summer outfits for children is quick and easy and requires very little fabric. For this pattern and other Nanoo patterns, check out my Etsy shop or some of the other retail outlets listed on the side.

Ava and Annette Customer Creations

A customer sent me these pictures recently using the Annette Reversible Sundress and Ava Sundress. What a great idea to add the panel for the July 4th dress and the rick rack trim.
I love this print and the extra bows on the shoulders are so cute.

It is such a treat to get these pictures from customers and see the ways they make the patterns different and unique. Thanks to all the customers who send me the pics.

Sunny Wrap Dress Customer Creation

This is a dress made by one of the military moms from a package I sent using the Sunny Wrap Dress. Her mom calls her "Bug-a-Boo" so the bug fabric was perfect for her.

She was picking flowers for her mom. How sweet.
