Let the Sneak Peeks begin!
Introducing.... NAOMI!


Naomi is the quintessential “beach dress”... casual, lightweight, comfortable and oh, so adorable! It features “shabby chic” raw-edge braided straps, a sweet ruffled hem, a cute little patch pocket with ruffled edges and a soft and comfy shirred back. Perfect for a seaside wedding, a family picnic or a casual trip to the farmer’s market, Naomi can be made in dress length or shirt length to suit your child’s needs. Mix and match your favorite fabric prints for a whimsical look.

Naomi comes in sizes 2T - 10 (girls) and is designed to be sewn with woven fabrics 44"/45" wide, like quilting weight cottons, shirtings, voiles, gauzes, lawns, linens and muslins.


You may remember my Hilton Head photos from a couple weeks back... the girls had such a fun time playing at the beach!

Sydney sported the dress version in size 6...


And Sophie wore the shirt version of NAOMI in size 10.

The raw-edge braided straps give this dress that sweet "shabby chic" look. Before we had a name for it, we all called it the "Sun Goddess" dress! haha


Now, how about some gorgeous inspiration images courtesy of my amazing pattern testers, Melissa Baker and Gina Neitzel?







Aren't they adorable?!? I know I always go overboard with pictures here but you guys don't mind, do you?

*** NOTE: This is just a sneak-peek!
