One year ago I came across this post  and instantly fell in love with everything my eyes laid eyes on.  I loved the girls, the clothes and I especially fell in love with Alexia's eye for just the perfect fabric.  I go into quilters cotton overload sometimes with it's over use in garments and it was refreshing to see a talent such as Lexi using gorgeous garment fabrics. (Don't get me wrong I love a nice quilters cotton just like the rest of you but it's not meant for EVERY garment.) In September of 2013 I see this post and am blown away.  I thought to myself, this girl has some serious talent and I must get to know her and I would love to work with her.  So I went for it and asked if she'd like to work with me on a new pattern and a few months later I'm so pleased and proud to announce the newest Figgy's pattern by Alexia Sotelo.

"Eos"

goddess of the dawn

 

  

This gorgeous dress is a treat for little ones for all special occasions or for the very girly girl.  Complete with 9 perfectly placed pin tucks, gathers at the shoulder, fully lined with a beautiful scoop back and adorned with the most professionally placed bow.  Alexia you have out done yourself!

Ethereal Tunic without the frill and added a bubble hem.

 

What can I say about bubbly skirts, tunics and dresses other than they are too cute!  I love that you can take a plain jane tunic and turn it into a fun bubble tunic in just a few extra minutes.  Today I'm visiting Simple Simon & Company showing you how to do just that!  For the garment I sewed in the SS post I used a gorgeous Art Gallery fabric and for today and tomorrow only you can enter to win a nice fat quarter stack from Art Gallery.  Thank you AG!  As always your premium cottons are amazing!
