Dress Sparkle

Jackie is a enraptured with old vintage things and have an idea of how she will begin to incorporate the things she can purchase on Etsy, namely pillowcases, old linens, lace, etc; into the garments she is sewing, but will also still use modern fabrics in the garment, an upcycle so to speak. I am a shabby~ chic addict, and want to work with old and new...this is he desire, thus my tag line of 

 I love everything Vintage, and my handmade clothes are going more and more vintage all the time. I don't do many "vintage reviews" so I was excited to review my daughter this beautiful dress from Dress Sparkle on Etsy!

This dress is a lovely designer fabric with the primary colors of a soft cream background with pink and mauve colored roses. The sleeves, and ruffle are in a pink and cream flower. 
This dress measures 26." from shoulder to hem length.

Here are some up close pictures to show the detail in this dress:

As soon as she tried it on, my daughter was dancing and twirling.It fit her well.  My favorite part about this dress is the lace. It's so dainty and pretty it pulls this dress all together! I think this dress would be perfect for pictures or a tea party ;D 

You can tell that she puts her all in making these beautiful dresses!

The Striped Swallow

You know how much I love finding new stores to shop for my children. I recently came across the store, The Striped Swallow, which has some of the sweetest clothes for girls! They are a small family mommy boutique specializing in the most beautiful outfits for babies, and toddlers. They feature a wide array of adorable clothes for girls for any occasion from casual school wear to dressing for the special father-daughter dance.

At Bunnies Picnic, you can shop by category for whatever you are looking for, for your children. They feature clothes including dresses, boy clothes, shirts/onsies and birthday outfits!

My daughter was sent these two items:
A embroidered long sleeve top that says 'As a matter of facet I do have a bow to match every outfit"
I saw this and I knew I had to review it! It's so my daughter! She actually DOES have a bow to match every outfit! LOL.This shirt came with a matching bow ;D I love these bright summery colors tighter. They bow is well made and it comes on a alligator clip. The top is a nice comfy fabric. It's Carter's brand.She has also worn it quite a few times so we had the chance to check how well it would wash, and I happy to report we have had no issues with shrinkage or losing its original shape.

This dress is one of my favorite dresses I've ever reviewed! I think it's all the colors together.
It fits my daughter well. Snug but not tight. It comes with a aqua blue sash that completes the dress!

Here are two other dresses she has available to purchase
