No Boys Allowed

According to Maeve, boys are not allowed in the room while the girls are sewing with pink and bling.


Maeve was simply giddy and ready to sew. So, off to the store we went.

I found out we have very different tastes in fabric (I thought we agreed but that all changed when talking about clothes I suppose). She wanted anything with sparkles, pastels, and just basically everything I didn’t want. Finally we agreed on this. It’s very pink. Very, very pink. It was her most important requirement while we shopped.


The pattern swore it was easy. Quilts-Only Mama begs to differ.


Pink thread. Pink scissors. Pink pincushion. Pink pins. Pink daughter.


The first item in Maeve’s debut collection — Rare Clothes* — is out only in Seattle starting tomorrow (morning right around breakfast time). By reservation only.

* She picked that as the name of her clothing collection. She was tickled that no one else anywhere would have this dress in these fabrics with these changes and this bling.

    I can’t wait to see her in her new dress. For awhile my daughter was all pink, but now she is 10 and is all brown and green geometrics and homespuns. Is there no happy medium?

    I heart the pink accessories, pink stripe, adorable Maeve ponytail picture! Good luck with the pattern, I can’t wait to see it all together!

    I just recently discovered your blog. I love this post! This is about when I learned to sew, and love seeing a new generation get giddy! I’m a former Washitonian, unwillingly relocated to the Midwest! 😉 Love checking in back home. Thanks for sharing!
