Out to Sea by Sarah Jane

If you fell in love with Sarah Jane's debut line, Children at Play for Michael Miller, then hold on to your chair...you're about to see some unbelievably darling fabric if you haven't already.  Her newest line, Out to Sea, is out-of-control sweet and whimsical, have I let you know that I'm smitten??





Heather and I have so many plans going on for this fabric, so exciting!  Several new patterns featuring this line will be coming out by August, so excited!!  The fabric should be available online and in shops starting in August.

Now as much as I tried to control myself, I couldn't.  I tried to finish up a couple of other projects before I got my chubby little fingers on this...but it wasn't meant to be.  Sigh.  I just had to cut into it!  I found this tutorial (thank you Pinterest!) and knew it would be perfect little project to finish up fast.  With a few little changes/additions I made this super sweet dress for baby girl:


I added sweet little pleats in the front, that was my first time doing that and I think it looks so cute!  And of course I added the bow :)


Since my little one isn't here yet I'm doing my best to ensure everything I make will actually fit, lol!  So I added a couple of button holes and buttons to make the straps adjustable.  The size is about 6-12 months, the pink anchor elastic will hit her just under the armpits.


And the back view.  Two little sailboats.


Yes...I do stop to look at it several times a day.  That fabric is just so cute, I could throw a scrap of it on a stray dog and want to adopt it.  Right??


Thanks for indulging me!  Soon this blog will be titled "Megan's Unborn Daughter...oh and Quilt Story" :)

You do realize that you are going to have to stop sewing the cutest little girl outfits sometime soon? If you don't, nobody will be able to get you a Baby Shower gift because you will already have so many nice things! Nah - just keep stitching away to your heart's content. It's all good.
