California Dreamin'

Hi everyone!  Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!!

I wanted to share this little preview of my newest fabric line for Free Spirit.  It is called California Dreamin' and you'll see several of the prints in these photos.  All of the dresses were made by the incredibly talented Valentine Westphal of House of Pinku!  She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and I LOVE every single dress she makes!  I saw this dress along with a few others she had made from Picnic Parade and I knew I had to see what she could do with this new line.  Wow!  Seriously, WOW!  What gorgeous dresses she makes!!  I'd never even thought about the fabrics being used for doll dresses before, but I think my small prints work really well with her designs!  These dresses (and these dolls) just make me smile!  Click on the photos to see the details a little closer.  She made a dress from every fabric in the line so I have lots more to share!  Hope you enjoy!!

A special thank you to my wonderful husband for spending the afternoon with me and taking all of these beautiful photographs!  I'm sure he never imagined he'd be photographing dolls for me, but he's quite good at it, don't you think?

Hope your weekend is full of smiles!
