Red, White, & Lisi Lerch Blue 

Late one night I was laying on my bed, staring at the ceiling, and coming up with dress patterns in my head. I usually do my best thinking/creating at night. I came up with a few different color combinations: navy, mod pink, and white or navy, yellow, and white, but I decided to change things up a bit and go for gingham. So the next day I went to Joann’s Fabrics, sketched up the design, and went to town.

Recently, I noticed my talent for being able to see pattern shapes for clothing. It’s just like geometry! I’m not a big fan of patterns and prefer not to use them for the sake of time. I also despise using pins because it takes so long to press and pin.

Originally, I was going to have three bows with one on each sleeve and one on the neckline, but I decided that less is more.

These bows are really easy to make! Stitch a straight line down a long, hot dog folded piece of fabric, fold it into a rectangle, cut the extra fabric, center the extra fabric onto the rectangle, and press!

As soon as I saw this gingham fabric at the store, I knew right away that these Lisi Lerch tassel earrings were the right fit.
