more grey skies...

I have finally cleared a bit of time
to sit down to make a few more dresses.
These have been added to my Grey Skies collection...

 
...it's a bit of a nod to my inner Holly Hobby.

 
I LOVE pockets!

 
Even tee shirt fabric can be elegant...




 
A few with a funky twist...


 
...and who doesn't love a little Marilyn Monroe...?


 
LOVE


 
The details on this dress make it so feminine...



 
Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles...

 
It looks a little like a French Poodle...but in a good way!


 
My old faithful is the classic three tier dress.

 
Sooooo comfy

 
And I adore old buttons!

 
I think I was feeling the 50's inspiration...

 
Doris Day anyone...?

 
Once I attached the geometric flower design to the skirt, I realized it looks like dirty paw prints...
now I love it even more!
 
I hope you see something that sparks your interest.
Feel free to call the shop or send an email if you would like to purchase one! The prices range from $38 to $68.00
