fall fashion and other such things...

This week has been busy and successful. We had family in town so we were showing them some southern hospitality....
cuties getting ready for an awesome  canoe ride through the swamp.

This has also been a very good week for Sweet Home Boutique. My poppy dress was featured in a blog in the Netherlands, and I made this little number
oh, my goodness this dress is comfortable. I have had several customers request pockets, so I decided to list a denim dress with pockets to end all pockets.

I listed this green  little number as well

This tunic has it all...It can be worn with or without the belt, pretty ruffles, flutter sleeves, and super yummy pockets...I wore this downtown the day that I made it, and it was a big hit. I have some Amy Butler fabric coming in that I plan to make another in.

 You can find these styles and more in my shop here
I also am really excited to have to make some new things for fall. Maybe it is because it has been over 100 degrees here lately, or maybe because the fall has so many lovely style options... I love plaids, and have some new Madras fabric that I plan to make some lovely skirts with ruffles with. I also love corduroy, so be on the lookout for some new items made with that as well. I consider my style "school teacherish", so this is another reason that I am excited to list some things in the season of  "back to school"


  1. A canoe trip sounds like so much fun!
    Love the green tunic and I bet it will look awesome in the Amy Butler fabric!

  2. Cute dresses! Isn't it nice to have family visiting? My parents are here from Florida and we had a super fun gathering yesterday.

  3. I love designing my own dresses and sew them. or sometimes I ask the tailor to do it. I love everything customed, I always feel special wearing them. Love your blue dress!


  4. Love the family photo in life-jackets!
