Michigan Seamstress Collaboration: Petite Stitchery &Co., Ali Jane & Co. and Van Atta’s

What are the odds, that you sew and live within driving distances of fellow testers!? Well the odds were in my favor and I had the opportunity to work and collaborate with some pretty amazing women!

My sewing friend Jennifer had the wonderful idea to get together and share what we love to do the most…. Sew, share our creations and represent a little of Michigan’s finest. How did it all start, Jennifer approached the talented ladies at Petite Stitchery & Co, and they loved the idea. Petite Stitchery & Co. provided all of the patterns that were used during the shoot. Next, she approached Ali Jane & Co. who is an Etsy shop owner here in Michigan. Throughout my blog you will see some beautiful accessories and they were all hand-crafted by Ali Jane & Co. We also had the amazing opportunity to work with Gemia, who owns Phat Quarters. All of our fabric featured is from her shop, which can be found here.

So a little bit about behind the scenes before I get started! Anna Durocher, Jennifer Jeremiah, and I all live within is 45ish minutes of each other.  We wanted to find someplace that was relatively close to all of us. We chose Van Atta’s Greenhouse in Haslett, Michigan. This was my first time there and let me say that it has so many hidden treasures. If your from the surrounding Lansing area and ever get a chance to visit, do so! They were so accommodating and let us do our thing.IMG_0777 1.jpg

So with that said, lets delve! I was so excited when mini had the chance to wear one of Ali Jane’s pieces! Of course I chose the lemon yellow boho tassel necklace (favorite color, lol) The craftsmanship is phenomenal and the delivery and showcase is friggen precious! This is part of her new line and can be found here! I love how its personalized and I think that is what makes it so unique.

For my first outfit I wanted something that could be for any season and I chose to do PS&co Fawn simple leggings and paired it with Willow hi-low tunic. Perfect combo for any occasion. Willow has several options:top, tunic or dress with or without ruffles.

For Willow, I used the Roses & Letters for the main sections and for the insert used Triangular Impressions. Roses & Letters and Triangular Impressions is part of the Art Gallery Fabric collection. Dawns leggings I used the Birch Fabrics, Mint Moda. These 2 pieces pair so well together.

I love how the hi-low gives Willow’s such a boho look.IMG_0746 1.jpg

I did the cross over straps to give the back extra flair.

My second outfit I did Ruby Romper and Sapphire layering top. This look has to be one of my favorites! Or maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for rompers and baby legs! lol I used the same fabric from my first outfit.

The necklace paired so well with the romper!

So now that I’ve shared some individual photos from my perspective. I want to share some photos I took of the girls. Let me just say that… It was a lot of fun!

  1. I used to live off VanAtta Rd. In Okemos. Is that why I love every single thing about this post? I don’t think so.
    Time to get busy shopping. Thank you!
