I am so excited to introduce today’s guests…Liz & Elizabeth from Simple Simon and Co. I first stumbled across these sisters when I was trying to come up with a pair of lace tights – to tell you the truth, I don’t know how or where they popped up – but suddenly I was staring at the cutest pair of lace tights I had ever seen! They put what I had hastily thrown together to shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame. Lol, and I have been a follower ever since!
These ladies have such an eye for photography and style, as well as a way of turning anything vintage into pure magic! I love being surprised every time I open up their newest post and seeing the eye candy they have for me that day.
They are also hosting a Vintage Crafter’s Challenge on their site, starting next week, and guess who gets to be a part of that?!!! (*Hint – starts with ‘m’, ends with ‘e’)
Needless to say, I was surprised when I received their Pattern Remix entry to find out that they had created not just one, but TWO dresses from the same pattern! One from each sister!!! I was blown away, as always :). I simply cannot speak high enough about these 2 ladies, so without further ado I give you Liz & Elizabeth from Simple Simon & Co.
We love Jessica’s blog and were excited for the Pattern Challenge. We had a hard time deciding on one pattern, but I am pretty happy with our results. We both took one pattern and created two sweet dresses for two sweet girls in our lives.
And here is what we came up with….
For my creation I made “The School Girl Dress” with the simple A-line shape and a pleated-collar with piping and fabric-covered buttons. You can head over to our blog tomorrow to get a tutorial for how to make the pleated collar with piping.
And Liz created a darling fabric-painted jumper with ruffle trim on the collar and the hemline. Cute, huh?
Lessons learned from this project…never judge a pattern by its cover!
Thanks Jessica! What great fun this has been!
Aren’t those dresses divine?!!! I don’t know which one I love more!! And *ahhhhh* more lace tights!!! Seriously, you guys rock!
