A dress for Kiley

This dress was custom made for sweet Kiley! She loves lime green! Green and pink is probably my favorite color combination.  I just love it! I sure hope she likes her new dress!

Peace, Love and Polka Dots and the GIVEAWAY!!!

I finished up the Peace, Love and Polka Dots dresses for Bri and Kayla, and I cannot wait to see the girls in their matching dresses!  I don't have anymore of the purple polka dot fabric, but I can get the peach sign fabric for anyone else who'd like one of these. It is also available with a pink, yellow or black background!  The next ones I am making will have zebra fabric at the bottom!  Can't wait to see how they turn out!!!

Over 50 people entered my giveaway drawing!  Many of them were people I didn't know, so THANK YOU to all of my friends for spreading the word about Sew Lovely: by Lori to your friends!  I am blessed an humbled to know that so many of you like my work and support my new endeavor.  LYNN TAYLOR won my giveaway, and I am super excited to make something for Sophie soon!

Thanks again for your support!  I give all the glory to God for allowing me to be home with my children and enjoying a new hobby!

Cute sisters

Aren't Jenna and Ryleigh adorable in their coordinating pillowcase dresses!?  I just love these girls!!!

This is a great look for sisters or cousins if you don't want them to match exactly, but you do want them to coordinate for pictures!  Won't these be cute for beach pictures later this summer!?

If you have a specific fabric you'd like, let me know, or just request a color scheme and I will use my creative juices to come up with something really cute for your little girl!

What's great about these dresses is, Ryleigh and Jenna can wear them to the beach this summer and continue enjoying them by pairing them with long sleeved shirts or turtlenecks and leggings when it gets cold.

Pillowcase dresses: $20 each or $15 each for two or more.

I will have some pre-made items for sale eventually, but mostly my business will be custom-made items for your little one.  See details below

Right now, the products I am offering are pillowcase dresses for babies and girls (0-3 months to girls size 8) and Mommy's Favorite Burp Cloths for girls and boys.

Pillowcase dresses are made using new or vintage pillowcases and/or the cutest new trends in fabric. You may chose your fabric from what I have avaialable or just tell me what color scheme you have in mind, and I'll select something really cute that your little lady will love! Each pillowcase dress is made with a coordinating ribbon which ties at the shoulder. What's great about pillowcase dresses is that they grow with the girl and can be worn in any season!  Wear them as is in hot months for a cool spring or summer look.  In the late fall and winter, they look great with a long sleeved top underneath and a cute pair of leggings or tights!  As she grows, she can stil wear her pillowcase dress as a tunic or top with leggings or jeans!

Welcome to Sew Lovely: by Lori

I received a sewing machine as a Mother's Day gift in May 2011. I am a newly self-taught sewer, but I LOVE it!!! In June, I followed a calling from God to leave a job I loved with the Girl Scouts to become a full-time stay-at-home wife and mommy. Now, I am blessed to have the desires of my heart to spend this precious time with my husband and my children.

Every now and then, when Lucy (15 months) is sleeping and JC (6 years) is playing video games, I have a little time to sit at my machine and CREATE something really cute. I have made lots pillowcase dresses and burp cloths for Lucy and as gifts for friends, as well as a few other fun items. After lots of VERY KIND comments from many of you about the items I've made, I have decided to offer some items for sale. It will be nice to make a little extra cash for my family while doing something I find a lot of joy in!

I cannot promise a very fast turn-around on orders; my husband and the children will always come first, and the only chance I get to sew is when they are all happy and fed. :) But, what I can promise you is that your item(s) will be sewn with lots of love and your little one in mind!
