Sister Style: Add a Little Flair

Pom pom dress Emma Chapman Pink door Clouds in her eyes Pom pom dress Every now and again I just feel like doing some kind of random, quick project. Just something fun that keeps my hands busy for a while. Usually these are things that can be completed in one or two nights (or a weekend day). You might think that I’m always “making” for my job, and it certainly IS a piece of my job (which I am forever thankful for), but a larger part of my time is spent on emails, behind the scenes administration stuff, and most creative things have to do with recipe development or photography.

But I was just in the mood to sew something, and I guess I was also putting off working on my quilt that I’m trying to complete this year. Ha! So, I added pom pom fringe to this dress, and I like it! It’s definitely on the line between so whimsical it should be kids’ wear and just plain fun. 🙂 It actually took a bit longer than I thought, as running this type of fringe through my sewing machine was a little more tricky than I initially anticipated. So, I guess I learned something too. 🙂

Any random projects from your life lately, sister?

Hey SisterI completely relate with that feeling of needing to create something just-for-fun! This summer I set up a little painting studio in my sunroom, and I’ve been sneaking in there to make paintings constantly. It feels really good to have a creative outlet and something to look forward to after a long week! 

Ps– your dress is so cute, Emma!

  • Pom poms are such a fun way to update old garments. Love the look of you “new” dress Emma. And so happy to see you sewing for fun 😉

  • The pom-pom flair is the best! Love it! I am always wearing things that borderline on belonging in the children’s section. Add in that I am petite and actually could buy things from the children’s section for myself, and I’m sometimes mistaken for a tween. Buy hey, what are clothes if you can’t have fun?!
