Summer Attire by my Sister Shelly

I promise I've been busy making stuff, like 23 penguin costumes for my daughters class play and a few other things I can't post right now. Until then I thought I would share some cute outfits my sister, Shelly, made. I've shared her stuff before HERE. She is amazingly talented and I wish I had the money to pay her to make all my girls clothes.

I helped her take a few photo's for her portfolio last week and she said I could share them with you. I'm not a real photographer and I don't know how to use photoshop, so please don't make fun. I think my daughter and her friends were great models.




I love this skirt. I want one for me, and a flat tummy to go with it.
I also love all the ruffly details on the tops. I could never make these tops like she did, but I might try making some similar ones by refashioning an existing shirt.




I finally convinced her to start a blog I'll let you know when it's up and running. She just finished design school and wants to teach sewing classes. If you live in the Salt Lake area and are interested send me an email kalleenk(at)hotmail.com and I'll forward it to her. Her prices are low and she knows everything.

What a sweet clothes! I'd love them in my size {and a flat tummy as well, thanks!}.

And your little models are adorable!

OK, Kalleen ... I totally want lessons but do you think Shelly would take a student like me??? Given our love/hate relationship of the past? Ha ha ... Please talk her into it. Tell her I'm a changed women! :) I just need to learn how to sew on a button or two!

I love those clothes. I can't wait for your sisters blog. It is bound to be inspiring just like yours!

She should be selling those clothes on esty or in a boutique. I just love them! I wish I were a better seamstress...well, maybe when I have more time to practice I will be, but then, who will I sew for? :)

Those are PRECIOUS! I want to learn how to sew - too bad I don't live anywhere nearby. :( If you'd like me to work on the photos in Photoshop and add her logo I'd be more than glad to (free of course), just let me know. Those are adorable!
