Summer means the beach

At least for a large portion of people anyway!  I was testing another design for Studio MCA and I couldn’t get the image of this dress out of my mind so I had to make it happen!

Lobster twirl dress #1I’ve been working on using up some of my “vintage” stash fabrics (aka…they’ve been in my stash for 2-3 years lol), and the middle fabric in particular was the one that NEEDED to be in this dress.  It’s a Michael Miller print from a few years ago.  The top fabric is also Michael Miller, it’s called Red Quarter Dot I think.  The bottom fabric is Amy Butler “Seeds” from either Belle or Lotus (I can never remember which is which!).

lobster twirl dress #2I didn’t use a pattern for this one, I just took a purchased tshirt (another stash I’m trying to work through since I now make myself almost all of the tshirts you see in my shop) and added tiers to it.  The little lobster dude just pulled this all together perfectly! Now tell me..are YOU hitting the beach this summer?


  1. Really cute!!!
