Hello Sailor!

The Pin Up version of my All 4 One Stylish Swimsuit is definitely my favorite.
I was so thrilled when I got a custom order for one of them for a special birthday girl. I was sent the invitations and asked to make something sailor inspired to match.

That is just my kind of challenge!!! How cute is that clip art and the colors?!
And look at the gorgeous birthday girl. Could she be any cuter? I just love these photos!

My favorite part about the suit is the little anchor I added to the bum.

The file is actually a hair felt stitchie that I bought from Whimsy Belle on etsy. I worked perfectly on the suit and would make adorable hair things, too.

I love the navy rolled hem on the ruffle and the hot green buttons, too. It came out so cute, that I made for Ella, also... but she wouldn't let me put the buttons on hers.

She  has a thing about having the exact same thing as someone else. She always wants hers to be slightly different... which I guess she's inherited from me and I have to respect it.

And, just for fun, check out these All 4 One Swimsuits in action.
Lucy's cold in over 100 degree temps. ha!

Sweet Sophie modeling the girls old swimsuit. Isn't she cute?!
I love handing these treasures down and seeing them on my nieces!

She's quite the little model now that my little sister is selling everyday princess dresses in her new shop!I keep trying to get her to do a give-a-way, but she's been so busy, she can hardly keep up with all the orders. Hopefully soon!

Sorry for the lack of posting. Summer is a full time job~
there's been hardly any time for blogging or sewing.
