have you missed me? it has been quite a while i will admit. little sweetness, aka baby boy BG doesn't allow much hands-free time for momma, which means not much time in the sewing room.

but, i have had this design in my head and it has haunted me for the last 2 weeks. when i lay in bed i think about it and all that needs to go to it. i think about the perfect fabric combos and how i need to put it all together. well, i finally had some time yesterday to sit down and put it on paper, and then thankfully on some fabric.

and it worked. and i smiled. there is no better feeling than dreaming up something in your head and seeing it work. makes me proud.

thalia mara once said, "the difference between an amateur and a professional is the attention to detail." while i am no where near professional here at BG (not even close), i do love some attention to detail. it is what sets my work apart. it is what makes it BG. so, i spend a lot of time pouring over the small details that may or may not even be seen. that right there is what will keep me away from mass production, that small little quirk of mine that will never allow me to give up the reins. but i think it works. :)

trudy is my newest design. she is flirty like louise, and she is vintage like nelle. she is the new face of BG. i have slowly been stepping away from the bright designs and loud fabrics for the softer more subtle tones. have yall noticed?

she makes me swoon. from the bodice and the rosette and the red buttons all the way down to the tulle...she makes me swoon. she is very similar to louise, but more of a cousin rather than a sister.

i have plans to have more of her. i have no clue how this will work on a time-line. as i said before, my studio time is very limited these days. however, i have more flowy tulle and more delicious fabric just waiting to be turned into a trudy. there will be different fabric combos just to keep it interesting. :) keep up on facebook - that is where i will post when i have more made.

until then...does she make you swoon?
