straight up belgian style

happy monday!  today i’m doing some international blogging over at StraightGrain as the first guest in An’s new series…kid’s clothes belgian style!

what is “belgian style?”  well…i had the same question.  thankfully, An put together a pinterest board to enlighten us, and man, belgian style is cute!!!  bright colors, fun layers, happy prints.  it’s different and cool and exciting and i want it to catch on in America very badly.

i already knew i loved An’s own style (especially this and this – she offers some adorable free patterns, too).  in fact, I was so inspired by An’s pastoral dresses, i had already made this dress two days before she even asked me to guest post!  that’s called psychic overachieving, folks.

so yeah, i’m pretty giddily excited about this one.  it’s fun and silly and somehow high fashion too?  i never thought i’d be shopping in the “photographic wildlife” section of the fabric store, but now i’m curious what other outlandish prints might make great kid dresses – potatoes?  ferns?  1980s mcdonald’s prints (actually seen at a the same store i got this fabric…)??  maybe so.  maybe so.

come check out my guest post at StraightGrain to see more!

hope your week is off to a great start.

    I love belgium clothes for kids and have a list of favorites bloggers, like EmmaenMona, Mina Dotter, leneMiene and really want a copy of Mme Zsa Zsa book, “Allemaal rokjes”, And Van Katoen event was absolutely great with a lot of gorgeous patterns including “The Antoinette Dress”. My God I am a fan. ;p
