dressing up for tea


If I've been thinking about hosting a virtual tea party for a while, I've been cooking up this latest news for almost as long. The funny thing is, the ideas weren't connected, but they started to mesh, and come together at the same time. So, after months of keeping this process a bit of a secret, here's some big news:

You'll soon be able to make dresses with Wild Olive designs on them!

What? For real! I have teamed up with Rachel of Mamma Made, and have been working on designs for some tea party dress kits, which you sew up yourself.

Actually, Rachel has done the designing, I've just done the illustrating. You can read all about the process over on Rachel's blog, and what's even better...you can win one of these dress kits!

But I'm not sure that I've communicated my excitement here enough. Let me try this...

!!!!!!!!!!YYYYAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! (For a full explanation, see this post)

Okay, I'm all calmed down. Seriously, this has been such an amazing thing so far. I never would have thought about doing something like on my own, and I was beyond thrilled with Rachel agreed to do one dress, let alone a collection. Thank you, Rachel!

  6. What a wonderful collaboration you two have come up with! They are all so cute, it’s hard to pick just one favorite. If I HAD to choose just one, I think it would have to be the Spoons dress.
