Shabby Chic Pinks and Roses

My customers have requested and I have been sewing more shabby chic rosy dresses this week.  This one is a mix of new fabrics from a UK designer and some recycled vintage linens and trims in my stash.  I just loved the stripes of cupcakes, cherries, and roses in the bodice, but it is discontinued and I only could find enough for 3 dress bodices!! 

My first "Reverse Knot Dress"  with the ties in back.  I am liking the long bow hanging down in back

One of a kind---this is to fit 12-18 Months  It is the last Ava Rose fabric I can find anywhere!!  The bottom border is an awesome vintage rose ticking fabric.  I have quite a bit of this one, so ruffle pants can be requested with this dress.  I'm thinking about what to make with the rest of the piece I found???  
Isn't this sweet?!

I have one or two more summery rose dresses to make up and then will be working madly on my fall and holiday line up!  I am very excited about the fabrics I have found, and will share more later.
