Lee's Baptism

We just had my nephews baptism today. It was a great celebration for my family, and my Mom and I got to show off some of our handy work. The baptism was done by Rev. Rich Webster at St. Lukes. It was a beautiful service and my nephew looked so handsome in his Christening gown that my Mom made for her very first grandchild. My mom amazes me more and more with her talents. This is the second christening gown she has made. Heirloom sewing can be difficult and tedious since you have to sew lots of delicate laces together, but Moms perfectionistic tendencies (that I love to tease her about) really come in handy. In the pictures it is hard to see the details, but it is gorgeous.

Another fun thing we added to Lee's outfit was a diaper cover. We wanted to keep something manly on him under that lacy gown. It was so cute. Mom made it out of camouflage fleece and it was lined with orange gingham and had orange buttons (to keep a hunter theme). It was fun to show off something his Daddy loves and keep things a little different.

The whole family had lunch at Mountain Brook Club after the ceremony. We didn't want Lee to have to wear his gown throughout the whole meal so I made him a special outfit for lunch after the pictures were taken. It was a blue window pane check "Paulie" with a small white cross appliqu├ęd on the yoke. It turned out very well and looked so cute on him.

One more picture of the proud parents and God parents (Tyler's brother and sister-in-law). They were so sweet to come from California to be here for Lee on his special day!

Welcome to our Blog!

My mom and I are very excited to be starting this blog. We both love to sew and enjoy making clothes for our friends and family. With the birth of my nephew in July we have kept busy making some clothes for him. (pictures of him will be abundant on this blog) We are hoping to use this blog to expand the people out there who know what we do! My mother has wanted to go into business making children's clothes for others for many years. Since I have learned to sew, and found I love it as much as she does, I have pushed her into pursuing her dream with me by her side. We are very excited and plan on making very cute, high quality, well sewn children's clothing to keep all the children in your life the best dressed in the neighborhood!
We are planning on using this blog to keep people up to date on what all we are working on. We also hope to eventually have samples and price lists on all of the cute children's clothing that we make. We are willing to do special orders and are available to help you pick out and design something special for your child. It does not have to be something you see on this blog or our Facebook page. Please email us for pricing information and/or questions, or feel free to leave a comment. Also make sure to follow us (plenty more to come), and don't forget to tell your friends about us!

P.S. Lots of pics already on our Facebook page!
