Elephants Galore

Over the past year I have become mildly obsessed with elephants. When I was trying to move to DC I sewed a little stuffed elephant for good luck, and the next day I got a job offer at where I work now!


I have also always been in love the Lilly Pulitzer’s Tusk in the Sun pattern and when I realized you can buy Lilly fabric online I knew I had to make something with the fabric. Recently April Rhodes released a Riding Peplum/Party Dress pattern. I love her clear instructions and adorable styles so I decided to try the pattern out with my newly acquired fabric. The dress isn’t quite done yet, but I’m just too excited not to share.


I already have a second dress planned with this pattern despite not being done with the first. Here is a little preview.


Have a Happy Monday!
