Valentine's Day Darling

After two weeks of sewing as often as I can, I have plenty to show for it, but most of it has already "left the warehouse". (I WISH I had a warehouse, but you know what I mean.)

What I have to show are some great pictures and 3 totally darling Valentine's Day dresses that are ACTUALLY for sale *GASP!* on Etsy. (See link on the right side.)

I also made 12 swimsuits this week, some of which are spoken for, some of which my daughter begged me to let her have, and some of which are already sold and shipped. Do I have any left? Umm... I might have one or two... maybe. I'll find out and post any extras.
Despite sewing and giving my daughter plenty of Barbie clothes, they still seem to end up naked from time to time. But according to her, the more important thing is whether or not they can all escape from the Daddy Monster in the same get-away vehicle. I'm thinking she should have gone with some sort of bus...

As for me, I have finally decided to take an outfit for myself. When I made this little blue dress, it seemed a little blah. but it reminded me of a 50's housewife, so I decided to take that idea and run with it, and when I was done, I was in love. This little outfit represents so much of how I view myself, and what skills and blessings I have that in which I take so much pride. Domesticity, modesty, style,  .....cuteness. You know what I mean. Needless to say, I can't give her up. She will not be going up for sale. She is going to stay with me. And that's okay. I think I deserve it.


  1. I don't know how long your waiting lists for swimming suits are, but count me in - for like 5 or 6, when ever you have them. Email, and I'll send a check or pay via paypal. I get tired of the naked barbies in the tub, they don't play nice with GI Joes.

  2. I love your designs!!! The Valentine dress is so cute I wish it was in my size! :-)

  3. This is belated. You totally deserve your outfit! My daughters really like the apron and so do I. You could call it the "Domestic Diva" outfit. March is coming soon!!!

  4. Amy, my daughter LOVES the Valentine's dress! It's so adorable and well-made!

  5. I love your designs and colors. I have 3 sons and now a daughter, the idea of naked or immodestly dressed barbies lying around the house is something I was truly dreading. My daughter is now 4 and was asking to borrow a friend's barbie, it's not long until she wants her very own, I loved my barbies till I was 11! I feel liberated by your modest clothing and inspired! Thank you for sharing you talent!

  6. I know two places you can get handmade beautiful modest Barbie clothes with Barbie shoes, Velcro, handmade pocketbook,necklace and bracelet sets. and
