He's Coming to town!
I found some great new shops in Birmingham; it is too bad that we don't have specialty shops like these here in Atlanta. The Smocking Bird has wonderful fabrics, trims and patterns for children's sewing; the staff is helpful and they really know their sewing. The pleated gros grain ribbon trim at the bottom of the skirt came from The Smocking Bird. In the back of the store is another shop, Little Legacies, and it is full of blanks and examples of projects to stitch. Their custom embroidery is beautiful. I found the red t-shirt with the lettuce ruffle on the sleeves and around the bottom edge there. The candy cane corduroy came from a big sale table in Hancock's last summer; I couldn't decide what to do with it and the skirts were Rachel's idea. Sally, or Nanna Sa, came to help make the skirts and it was a fun afternoon for all the girls! We embroidered the t-shirt with the Santa applique from Sew Many Designs and cannot wait to see our 3 big girls in their new Christmas attire!
