The Naples Pattern has many options:

*Sizes Newborn to 12 yrs.

*Several sleeves options including: Long Bell, Short Bell and Butterfly

We (my daughter) are huge fans of top vs dresses so it is always nice to have that option!

This super flowing top is accentuated by super soft  Art Gallery Fabric’s Lovey Dobby Denim fabric and Pat Bravo’s new line, Essentials II.  Streakly Business Gold and Delicate Femme Gold.

Happy Friday!!

I am back again with another Blog Tour!! This time with my good friend, Maureen Cracknell’s Fleet and Flourish Fabrics!! She has TWO fabric collections with Art Gallery Fabrics, Wild and Free (Limited Edition Line) and Fleet and Flourish. I fell head over heels in love with Wild and Free so when it was announced she was hired by AGF and ready to release her second line I was like a giddy school girl! Give me, give me, give me!!!

I have been a huge fan of Maureen since her first collection. She not only makes amazing fabric collections but have you seen her blog with all her amazing Quilts?!!!

Let me stop for  moment to talk about myself, well actually make fun of myself. I don’t like being in front of the camera because I feel like Will Farrell in Talladega Nights when he says, “What do I do with my hands???!!!” BUT being in front of the camera does remind me to be more grateful of Miss T. and how many times she stands in front of the camera! Also, because I was dying to make myself a dress in the Fleet and Flourish Fabric. Miss. T can’t have all the outfits!

EH4A7916-2

I used Thriving Threads Light Knit for the entire dress, SO soft and cozy!!! I originally planned to make Sew House Seven, Bridgetown Backless Dress into a Maxi Dress but when I finish sewing I realized I made a cutting error and the hemline was to tight to walk in. I cut off about 12″ and made it a Midi length.

Maureen, I love every print of F&F and can’t wait to see what you have next! I’m pretty sure everything you design has magic in it!
