Summer Dirt


When I was little I remember my mother telling my sister and I that the smudges on your arms were "summer dirt" and that we would know it was really summer each year when we saw them. I took it as gospel and looked for them for many summers after.  Now I have my own little guy and can't wait to get out there and get some summer dirt on my arms again with him! I hope he can enjoy puddle jumping, gardening, and bug boxes as much as I did. This collection was inspired by those memories and my excitment for my son Max's first summer as a real explorer.                                                                                     


The following are the original patterns I created. The pallet I chose initially is not my final color story, but its what I used to get started. 


Once I was happy with my patterns I decided on a final color story and a coordinating second pallet.  I tried to focus on warmer colors in my first and cooler in my second. 

Summer Sun


Cool Breeze


My final collection-


Collection 2


Finally I used a couple of my patterns to create mock-ups. Its so exciting to see them come to life!



I believe I will continue to work on this pattern collection in the future, but I would love any feedback I can get, and had a great time creating it!
