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...'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...?


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
