Oh, So Precious!

D.D. modeling the one I made last night.

I have found the most adorable line of little girl’s and women’s clothing.  It is Matilda Jane Clothing.  Check out their web page www.matildajaneclothing.com.  Precious looks!  I am considering becoming a trunk keeper.  Still thinking and praying about it.  I have never been to one of their trunk shows actually.  I found the company through a friend’s Facebook.  Imagine that!  I have purchased my little darling a couple of items off of E-bay.  The first two items were a peasant top and a pair of pants.  Here is a picture. 

I love the mismatched prints.

 These two articles really don’t even do the company justice.  These are not the cutest Matilda Jane pieces that I have seen and wanted.  These are the two that I won the bids on within my price range.  I think sellers of M.J. on Ebay make a good profit because these items cannot be found in stores.  This next one that I am going to show you is my favorite.  The darling daughter might wear it for Easter.  For the amount of money I spent on it, we need to wear it often.  Sometimes it’s o.k. to make these types of splurges-in my opinion, anyway!  Take a look.
I’m in love with this dress!

 I also found these cute tank tops that will be perfect for the summer.  However, I do not intend on spending $25 plus for one.  So, I guess I can admit it.  I’m a copy cat.  Since I have been exploring my creative side through sewing, I decided that I should try to make one of these tank tops.  I love shopping for fabrics.  There are so many beautiful and whimsical choices.  Here are the fabrics that I chose from B& B Quilting and Gifts in Buda, TX.  These ladies were so helpful and they didn’t even mind the two small children who accompanied us on our hunt for the perfect “look”.

I purchased all of these fun textiles in order to create my version of the M.J. tank.  I made my first one last night using pre-fabricated ruffle trim.  Today I taught myself via the internet (what a wonderful creature it is) how to make ruffles.  I will use my homemade ruffle on the next top.  Here are a series of pictures which will include the Matilda Jane tank, the one I made last night at midnight, and the ruffle that I fabricated today.  Enjoy the photos and by the way, I love reading your feedback.  If anyone is interested, I might be willing to sell you one for $15.

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
