NEW PATTERN and a DRAWING for a CUSTOM pair of EMBELLISHED jeans!!!

I need a little help picking the cover for my new pattern The Mia Top. The photo shoot went really well, (which usually is not the case when working with a toddler), and I ended up with 3 really cute ones! So to share in my happiness of having an under 30 min photo session, I thought I would offer a prize to one of you. Just post a comment here telling me which picture is your favorite and you will be entered in a drawing for a pair of custom made Embellished Jeans! The winner can pick the size for a child up to a 10 and I will provide the jeans from Old Navy. If you want a pair for 12 years up to adult you can provide the jeans and I'll embellish them. I'm only doing that because once you get into larger sizes it's harder to find a pair that fits perfectly and I don't want to mess with that :) Last day to enter the drawing is Wednesday April 1st!

*Jeans will be made after I get home from Market at the end of May.*

Do you LOVE this fabric? It's Soire'e by Lila Tueller. I can't get enough of it!

So here they are:

Picture #1



Picture #2



Picture #3

so sweet! i really like the second one because it shows off the dress to full advantage, the lighting is great, and it shows it works with toddlers on the go! plus, you can see a peek of the embellished jeans in that one too :D

Fresh Poppy Sisters said...

I Like the first one because your daughter looks adorable, and the lighting is great!

Ariane said...

I love this outfit. The pictures are beautiful. I love picture 2. She looks amazing in that picture and you can really see the outfit well. I just love the pattern.

Tina said...

My favorite is picture #2!!! I think it shows off the top the best! Love it!

Allie said...

I do love the fabric! I also love the first photo, it is so cute and looks so natural.

Heather said...

My vote is for picture number two. I like the slight lean/angle of your precious little one. Giving the true "function/fit" of the top. It also shows a slight sneak peak of the embellished jeans, making the patterns compliment each other. You have an amazing amount of talent and two beautiful daughters. God is good and you are blessed!

Kaerlig said...

Love them all. I vote picture #2.

LB3K said...

This is a fabulous pattern! Just like the rest of your patterns! I love pic 2-- just beautiful!

Debra said...

I love picture #1, she looks so sweet and innocent. It is the picture that would want me to buy the pattern and make the top for my daughters!! I also adore the fabric!!!

Jan Richards said...

I like the 2nd picture the best. This is a very cute pattern and a sweet little girl too. Thanks for a chance to win some jeans.

So Bella said...

I just love #1! So sweet & natural... your daughter is adorable! I love the top & fabric too!

erlinda said...

Love the new pattern and the fabric is beautiful! All three photos are precious. #2 is my fav.

feinesstoeffchen said...

I love them all but my winner is No. 2 - I hear hear say I´m a fairy princess or something little girls say when posing like this.

My 3 year old WOULD LOVE this top so I LOVE the name . my little girl is called Mia as well.

Bye, Kati

Lila Tueller said...

I LOVE all of them...she is BEUATIFUL, and the outfit is absolutely ADORABLE! Thanks for showcasing the fabric in such a positive way!
I vote for picture #2. I love the action, and the flowers, and her sweet expression. Precious!!!

Lila

Kristin said...

They are all winners, but #2 really shows off The Mia Top in the cutest way!! Not to mention, the profile of her face is just so sweet & adorable! Anyway, I'm looking forward to these - thanks so much for designing such yummy patterns!

Suzanne said...

What a precious little girl. All the pictures are beautiful, but my favorite is #2 -- probably because you can see the pattern best on the little top. Love the flowers and the natural pose. Love this pattern -- definitely want it for my little granddaughters!

Lisa Knight said...

I agree 2 shows off the top the best & is super cute. Of course all 3 are adorable! This pattern is so precious.

Fresh Poppy Sisters said...

Tough choice, you did get three beautiful ones! I'm going to go with #2 I think it's the best showing off the top and your girl is simply gorg!

I love picture #2...............So sweet and natural looking. Glenda W

sparkliestar said...

i like #3,lol.different than every one else...but i think it shows the tops design,and fit well,it also shows the great detail.its a beautiful top!:)

Nicole said...

They are all so cute!!! I think #2 shows off the shirt best though. Cute!!! (and now I see that I could have just said ditto, to everyone else! LOL)

Katrina said...

I like picture #3! Such a cute pattern!!

Anonymous said...

I love this top! I can't wait until it's available! The second picture really shows it off nicely.

MM said...

Love all three pictures, but I'd choose picture #3. Can't wait for the pattern! Jan

Amy said...

Wow. You did get some really great photos. My favorite is #1. I love the soiree fabic. I am planning to make matching outfits for me and my daughter with it. (With yours and Lila's patterns of course) I'll send you some picures when I get them finished.

Nova0437 said...

#1 is adorable!

Di said...

They're all cute as your girls are just beautiful but I'll just say ditto meaning I'd go with #2! Oh, and the fabric is just to die for!

sweetbabies00 said...

At first glance, I thought this was going to be hard, because she is so pretty and the pictures are great, but at second look, it was very clear to me that #1 is the winner. #3 washes out the fabric, #2 is cute, but you can't see the entire top and #1 is awesome!
my 2 cents. Great work
Thanks

Kara said...

I pick #3. I love Livy in this. What a cute shirt. You need to call me. I've tried you twice. I know your sooo busy. I just miss ya.

Kristin said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE picture number 2! It really shows how the "Mia Top" will flow! I can't wait for the pattern so that I can make one for my daughter!!!

sweeter than cupcakes said...

So sweet. I think #1 is my favorite.

Kristen said...

oh I LOVE 3 - what a sweet pose & shows off the top well

Anonymous said...

All are great!! But for the COVER I think picture one is the best. Love your work! Thank you so much for what you do.

Chelsea said...

I see that most of you are leaning towards #2, but I am partial to #1 because I love the pose and her face. Ahhh, I don't know what to do!

I need to think on it for a few more days:) Thanks for all of your comments!

Chelsea

Kerith said...

Chelsea, she is beautiful! It's hard to pick between #1 and #2 but I think I like #1. Absolutely gorgeous!

The Portens said...

This is so cute! Your daughter is beautiful. My pick is #1! Beautiful of your daughter, and a great shot of the top! ~Lori

Melanie said...

Your little "Sweet Pea" is the perfect model...I can only imagine how hard it must be to decide what photo is the best...I love #2...your daughter has such an angelic face... :) I have a 6 year old granddaughter who would think she was a princess in the Mia top and embellished jeans!..and I too love the Soire's fabric!

Wiggleworm Kids said...

You are right about 3 cute pics! I think the 2nd shows off the dress the best

Anonymous said...

I love all three pictures, but the 1st is my favorite. It just shows her innocence and sweetness! Beautiful little girl and top. I love the fabrics you paired - nice job as always!

Lori said...

I love picture number two. Such a sweet photo.

photomama said...

I think you should go with picture #1. The pose is perfect, the lighting is great and she just looks happy and natural. The top is adorable. Picture wise I think that picture #1 also has a better use of a diagonal and is more pleasing to the eye because her hands aren't cut off out of the frame. From a advertizing/marketing standpoint I think Picture #1 will get you the most sales of your pattern.

Yolanda said...

Good afternoon. I think that No. 1 is adorable however No. 2 show more detail of the top and is equally as cute.

Molly said...

#1, I am going to have to make that for my girlie.

Anonymous said...

Hi! They are all too cute! If you are looking to frame one in your house, I would go with #1. If you want one to show off the adorable pattern, I would go with #2. Good luck!

Paula Schultz said...

# 2 is my favorite! Kind of an "action" shot..lol...she is adorable and I LOVE the top!

Abigail said...

I love 2 and 3 the most. And I agree with all the previous people who said 2 really shows off the top.

alissa said...

picture 2 is my fave,it really shows off the top the best, but pic 3 is absolutely adorable!!!! Geez, you really can't go wrong with any of them, she is absolutely precious!!!

Melanie Kohr said...

My favorite photo is #3. The photo is precious of your daughter and you can really see the details in the top without any distractions.

sheila said...

I love #2 because it seems to showcase the fullness and swing of the top.

They all are beautiful so whatever one you choose will be great.

I just love all your stuff. My 2 year old looks great in all the patterns of yours. People are always commenting on her clothes. It is such a wonderful feeling to know I was able to make them and it's all cuz of your adorable patterns!

Thanks
sheila

Renee said...

#1 is my favorite :)

Mason Family said...

I love the fabric! I vote for #2. It's a unique pose that shows off the outfit really well.

Piper said...

I love the 1st one. She looks adorable. I love her little smile. It draws you into the picture.

Dana N said...

The second one shows off the top the best--but the first one is so stinking cute that I could not resist buying the pattern! :D

Rebecca said...

I live pic #3. They are all great, but the expression on your daughter's face is so innocent and sweet.

Ashley said...

If we were picking which one was the cutest, I'd pick #1. Your daughter is so precious. But for your pattern I'd pick picture #2 because it's a great shot and shows off the lines of the top.

audreysattic said...

Love them all as your daughter is beautiful! It is a toss up but I vote for #1!

Da Setiuz Mama said...

You're right! They are all lovely!!
But my fav would have to be picture #1. The fabric is gorgeous and the design is lovely and girly...so refreshing in this age of dressing our girls like little adults!

I love the first picture best...her expression is just priceless

~amber~ said...

They are all sooooo good but I love #1. She is getting so BIG. Kids grow up so fast!

kelly said...

hi! they are all amazing but I love #1 --such a precious expression. so sweet!

jenny said...

wow thay are so nice please enter me infor

gina said...

Oh they are all so good. I love, love #1 cause of the expression on her face. But from the standpoint of selling a pattern I think #2 showcases the top the best. How soon before we can get these?

Hugs,
Gina

Leah (mummy made it) said...

Picture 2. as it shows off embelished jeans and is a bit different in terms of posing! very cute.

Chelle H said...

All three are way cute but my fav would have to be number 3. Darling top and great fabric combination.

lindagerig said...

I love the third photo although they were all wonderful. How could they not be with such a pretty girl. How did you ever get her to pose like that? I have grandchildren and they never want their picture taken. Linda Gerig

Kristin said...

# 3 is my pick.

LilyHaven said...

The pattern, the little girl and the fabrics are all BEAUTIFUL. I can see why you're having a hard time deciding. :)

But, I would definitely go for #1. The lighting is perfect and I love your daughter's expression. It's PERFECT!

Shannon

stacyefisher@yahoo.com said...

Wow!! That is a hard one...but I am totally drawn to picture two. It captures the moment perfectly. Happy picking. Stacy

Mathis and Kari said...

Oh I miss her! Picture #1 is the best! The lighting is perfect and she just looks so sweet :) Picture 3 would be the second of my choices but the lighting kind of washes her out I think. Miss you guys so much!

Leah said...

Definitely #1. What a perfect beautiful little girl! Your colors are bright and vivid and her facial expression is perfect. She looks great but you actually look at the clothing too!

Jill said...

The outfit is ADORABLE! I like photo number 3 because your model looks so angelic and innocent in the photo. It shows the design of the shirred part and the underskirting. FABULOUS!

Jill

Lori said...

They are all so adorable! I vote picture #1!

danielle said...

I like #2 the best where she is reaching for the flower. I think is showcases the top a little more and you get the patch from the pants as well. They are all super cute, so I think if you pick any of them you can't lose!

Megan said...

3 good shots with a toddler in under 30 minutes?! Impressive. My fave is the first one - love the top, love her sweet face.

kym said...

My daughter and I like picture two, although all of them are adorable! The fabric is great and the pattern is adorable!

Lisa - Little Bits said...

No. 2 is definitely my fave! The top is gorgeous and I love your fabric/color combos!!

Gina~Sassalot said...

I love them all, but #1 is my fave. It is absolutely adorable of your little girl and is good of the top, lighting and all that jazz. She is just precious and not such a little baby girl anymore. They grow up so fast huh? Good luck with the new top pattern! I'll be swooping it up. :-)

little pumpkin grace said...

Picture #2 is my favorite! Your little one looks precious in all of them :) IMO, pic #2 shows the top at its best!
~jessica

C Mommy said...

I'm all about the 3rd one! They are all super cute and oh, the fabric is divine!!

Gl├╝ckskind said...

The first one! She is SOOOOO lovely in it. And you can see the details of the top very well, too!

Spruce It Up said...

Oh, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them, but I would have to say the first one! Love the fabric too!

Spruce It Up said...

Oh, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them, but I would have to say the first one! Love the fabric too!

Bertie said...

I can't wait til' the pattern is available- SO CUTE! I would definitely go with the first one!!but they are all adorable- you can't go wrong!

Home Sweet Hideaway said...

Such a CUTE top, and she's just a doll! I vote for #2 - SUPER sweet! I have 2 young daughters as well and would just love to try making this!

nic said...

i heart number one...actually, i love them all, but especially number one.

awesomely cute top, chels!

Dave, Loralee, Emma, & Bree said...

My vote is number 2-I think it shows every aspect of the dress in the most detail. I know that's what I'm looking for when buying patterns!
You do a FANTASTIC job with your patterns-I own most of them!!

Becky said...

Ohhh, all soooo cute!! But I would definitely pick the first one! It will sell the most patterns with that sweet cherub daughter's sly little smile. Good luck at Market!

Sew_Happily_Ever_After said...

I vote for picture #1.

freshandvintage said...

#1 for sure Chelsea :) It is gorgeous! Can't wait to see you sweetie :) Hugs, Eva

Holly said...

I really like all of the pictures, but if I have to pick one, it would be the first one. You daughter is adorable!

I wanted to also tell you that I am loving the "Kill the Fat" posts. I started exercising again when you did the first post. I am eating better and feeling great. I look forward to more post about this. Thanks!

Hana said...

Love #2! Such a gorgeous photo and a sweet little model. Congrats on having a great shoot! I did one w/ my almost 1yr old yesterday (see blog) and it was such a hassle but had great results in the end. Glad yours went smoothly!

Raquel said...

I am a little late on posting, but...
I am voting for #1. Love her facial expression, what a doll.
