Okay gals and guys, lesson number one from yours truly is, INSPIRATION!!! This is one of the most important aspect of designing and sewing. Once you have inspiration it all cake from there. One of my inspirations is Little House on the Prairie. I know what your thinking, "WHAT?!" Well I must say little Laura Ingles was a pimp. She wore some pretty cool stuff. That is the thing with inspiration, it can be something lame that hits you out of nowhere and you create some awesome stuff. It is all in your personal translation where the real demention and life comes to your garment. My "little house on the prairie" line has 6 peices, they are a skirt, two dress, and a shirt for little girls and two different dresses for adults.

Here is my inpiration picture. I love how the mom is holding the one girl and the other is sitting at her feet with the dog. It is priceless and just spoke to me. This was my first "line" and it was so innocent and sweet that it really hit me with inspiration.

Here is a picture of one of the little girls dresses. I would like to post the whole line ...I am horrible with pictures so I apologize ahead of time.

Anyways, inspiration! you can find it anywhere and everywhere. keep your eyes open and start sketching, sketch anything you think is pretty or cute or even ugly, sometimes you can turn it beautiful. Well, until next time, be inspired.

Did you really sew those dresses?! Oh my gosh they are so cute! Do you sell little girls dresses or do you make custom ones? I really like your blog, I posted a link to it on mine. If you want you can email me with answers. Thanks!
