As my daughter grows so does her want for making her own decisions on what she wears (good luck kid, because Mommy has a lot of control in that area). So in trying to better myself (I am trying!), I let her pick out the fabric and the pattern. She could not have done better, I love how the Rose Dress pattern, by Violette Field Thread, Peplum plays off the movement of the Tiny Dance Fabric.
Have you ever worked with fabric that evoked an emotion in you? No, I am not crazy and I was not drinking when I was sewing 🙂 . Seriously, I feel as though I am standing in a field with Dandelions flying all around me. Very peaceful and child like!
Like I said above I used Tiny Dancer in Midnight for the main portion of the dress and for the middle insert of the bodice I used Doodle Meander. Doodle Meander is a beautiful light green with hints of peach and Navy blue.
Halo is made by Little Sparrow Bows on Etsy
Sketchbook collection features gorgeous deep blue, pretty pink pistachio green, cozy brown and mustard yellow. All inspired by nature and of course made with the AMAZING Art Gallery “Feel” !
I attended Quilt Market this past Spring and had the opportunity to meet Sharon in person. Sharon was so sweet and I was really lucky to have her share with me The Sketchbook Fabric Collection. I knew this collection would be great as soon as I saw it! So Thank you Sharon Holland and Art Gallery Fabrics for allowing me to be apart of the Sketchbook Blog Tour!!
