a twirly skirt...

 you probably know by now that i love to sew... and that i love fabric... there's great satisfaction that comes with a finished project...
that's how oopsie maizie began... i made clothing for my first born daughter, maizie... people who saw her wearing things i made began to order... and the orders continued to come...
by word of mouth, things were spreading nicely... then life got a little crazy... well... a lot crazy... and i made the decision to go back to school for early childhood education... once i took that step... oopsie maizie fell by the wayside...

i still made things for my girls but i kind of stopped doing it as anything more than that...

i received a request the other day for a 4 year old little girl who lives in florida...
i immediately got excited... because, you see... making clothing makes me happy!

i'm hoping to start bringing some of that back into my life... and hopefully one day i'll get up the courage to open up an etsy shop... i think that would be fun!

here's what i've been up to...
a little shirt...
with ruffly detailing and a frilly flower...

&

a twirly skirt...
with ruffly detailing...
i'm so happy with how it turned out...


marina asked me to make an outfit for her... she was a little sad when she came home today and realized that this one wasn't for her...

can't wait to pull together some fabric options for her... and when i do... i'll be sure to share them with you :)

have a happy day~

This is beautiful, Angie! And YES...you should open an etsy shop! Your stuff is always beautiful. My good friend Lisa, who blogs at Wine & Glue, recently opened hers and I'm sure would be happy to talk to you about it :) Follow what you LOVE!!!
