Here comes Bunny Cotton Tail, hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity-Hoppity, Easter's only six weeks away...
Easter is fast approaching, but we have you covered with a darling new collection of girls boutique clothing for Easter and Spring that will knock your socks off! Be prepared for a cuteness overload as we have a very fine mix of colors, patterns and solids that I think you will absolutely LOVE for your Fabulous Girls! They're not my typical "go-to's" when designing, but I may have just hit the ball out of the park this time. My fingers are crossed that you embrace this new collection as much as my heart has!
It was fun to switch things up and delve into some beautiful hues of blue, including sky, cornflower and even navy. I threw in some splashes of peach and a bit of light moss green to add the "pop" that FGC is known for. I also included some solid white pieces with dainty embellishments to balance the collection and ground it with a touch of texture that is oh, so Southern. Did you just hear whispers of Swiss Dot and Seersucker? Yep, I went there with our classic shift dresses. This collection offers you darling pieces for both your little and big girls to make their fondest memories in. All of us here at FGC couldn't be more excited to share with you our first ever Easter Collection: Bunnies, Peaches n Cream, Oh My!
This girls collection of Easter and Spring clothing is the perfect mix of whimsical pieces, like our Bunny Hop Knot Dress, and classic Southern Standards , like our Miss Dainty Shift Dress done in a beautiful crisp, white Swiss Dot fabric.
Our Bunny Hop Knot Dress is full of whimsy and versatility. She can be layered up or not, looks like perfection either way, I promise! This knot dress is 100% cotton, exclusive of the lace trim and runs TTS, but is slightly generous in length (great for growing girls!). The straps are adjustable and can either be simply knotted or tied into these sweet bows as shown above. To learn how to easily tie these bows, click here to watch me do it. This darling handmade dress is limited in quantity, but available in sizes 2 thru 8 and is $48.
Am I allowed to swoon over my own dress or how about my baby girl??? That I'm not sure of, but I surely do adore me some Swiss Dot. I have always thought it to be so dainty and supremely feminine. Yes, I'm in love with this girl of mine and the dress! Our Miss Dainty Shift Dress is most certainly a Southern Standard in these parts. Miss Dainty would be so perfect for Easter, a First Communion celebration, a special party and certainly for Sunday School. She's easy to wear and offers your Fabulous Girl comfort with the side kick pleats and the easy-up back zipper. Let's not forget the rose embellished pockets. Look at Liliana, she can't resist the pockets! This sweet dress is 100 % Cotton (exclusive of rose trim), fully lined, available in sizes 2 thru 12 and is $39. Yes, you read that correctly, we offer our shift dresses in bigger sizes for your tween girls. I know, praise Jesus!, right? I know first hand the struggle is real with dressing our tweens.
Here we have our vintage styled Sweet Mary Swing Dress in Sky Blue. She offers the most forgiving silhouette making her tremendously comfortable for your active girls. Is there such a thing as a "sleeper dress" (you know, like a sleeper movie: a movie that you started watching halfheartedly, but ended up absolutely loving the whole thing and wishing you had embraced it so much sooner?) I think this might be one of those dresses, but trust me, it's super cute and even easier to wear and care! Sweet Mary is made of 100% Cotton, exclusive of trim and machine washable. She is available in sizes 2 thru 8 and is only $39. Give our Sweet Mary a whirl, you'll be glad you did!
Oh, my sweet, sweet Charlotte girl gets a turn to step in front of the camera for FGC and does it with such ease. That's just one more thing I love about this girl of mine! She exudes a quiet confidence and easy elegance just as our Southern Beauty Shift Dress does. This girl's shift dress is rich with Southern Charm featuring classic seersucker cotton and offers ease of wear with it's side kick pleats and easy-up back zipper. She's fully lined and handcrafted with care, including this delicately placed pocket trim. Don't fret Mama's the Southern Beauty is still easy to wear and easy to care, completely machine washable. Our Southern Beauty Shift Dress is also available in sizes 2 thru 12, $39.
Sweet Fay is wearing our brand new Peaches n Cream Knot Top paired with our first ever Play Date Shorts also done in Peaches n Cream floral. Is it just me or is this another swooner? I think you'll find the knot top very versatile. Again, you can layer it up or not depending on your weather, but this darling top can be worn year 'round making it a fantastic value for you. Our talented sewists have lovingly placed a button embellished French ruffle on the bodice. It's all in the details for me, every time! Both our Peaches n Cream Knot Top and Play Date Shorts are available in sizes 2 thru 8, 100% Cotton. Knot Top is $36 and Play Date Shorts are $24. You're on notice Mamas: both of these items are limited as we're testing these designs ;) Once the collection drops, Snag them up early! Also, don't forget you can always tie bows for this knot top, too, watch me tie bows here.
I'm curious, who noticed my little Plush Bunny? Do you want some of those too? They'd make the cutest Easter basket stuffers for sure! I've been wanting to make these bunnies for about three years and now I finally get to, yesssss I'm going to get my sewing fix! I'm so excited to be able to include them in this Easter and Spring Collection for your Fabulous Girls. Plush Bunny is 100% Cotton with poly filling and embellished with various tie ribbons, just $12.
Honestly, I couldn't be any happier with how well each piece came together and how seamlessly all the pieces mix and match, offering you endless sister, cousin and bestie combos. Raise you hand if you can remember when you had a matching dress or outfit with your cousin? I recall it, but only a few times and let me tell, those were some fine times running around my Grandma's yard with Angel and Amber in our yellow Swiss dot Easter dresses that our mama's had made for us, sweet, sweet memories! You can do that for your girls too, no sewing experience required ;)
Now that I have all the pieces in hand, I can't help but envision coordinating dishes, as in some china. Crazy, right? Seriously, that is where my mind goes. I can completely see the bunny print on plates with a thin line of peach around the edge and coordinating tea cups and saucers, a touch of moss, tone on tone white lace here and there...I can see an entire tablescape built around my Bunny Hop Knot Dress....and it would be so Fabulous, talk about a darling tea party! See? This is what happens with me...the next thing you know I'm dreaming (again) of FGC becoming a lifestyle brand! Do any of you other mamas love dishes and tablescapes like I do? I think for me it's all about the gathering with your favorite people and having the most inviting table to make memories at. Just think about how hard your kitchen table works for your family for just a second. It's the place where stories are swapped, tears are shed, jokes are told, delicious food is shared, birthday cakes are served, homework is done...just countless memories are made at our kitchen tables. I personally think they should be honored with lovely and memorable tablescapes, especially on momentous occasions such as Easter. Mercy, I digress! Somebody please tell me I'm not alone...any investors out there? lol
Don't fret, I don't have lovely china dishes to offer you now, but I do have an Easter Collection that is perfect for memory making that will last your Fabulous Girl a lifetime! Join us this Thursday, Feb22, at 10am EST for the release of this special, handmade collection.
