Happy Friday and welcome to my stop on Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour. I am excited to share with you how I got to interpret Pat’s new collection. Heartland released in September and this will be her ? collection for Art Gallery Fabric.
Yesterday , Mariana Diaz shared her Heartland creation and on today along with me, Elina Temmes will be sharing her project! Be sure to check out these beautiful projects to get some inspiration!
Heartland is inspired by the beauty of Scandinavia. I have to admit I had to sit and brain storm for a while and look to Pintrest for some Scandinavian inspiration. Other then Ikea (I know, very sad!) I did not know a ton about the Scandinavian style. Pat has a great inspiration page on Pintrest. So using that along with other research, I found some themes that come though loud and clear. It is simple, fresh and minimalist. Oh, and their beautiful landscapes! So for my photos I brought in the color red, landscapes, clean simple lines and of course I had to style my daughter’s hair up in braids. Too bad she does not have super blond hair, maybe a good dye job is in order. Just kidding! Hahahaha!
For my project I used:
Blomma Garden Pastiche in Voile and Unn Cross Pine in Cotton for the bodice. I have been obsessed with Voile lately! It is dreamy the way it moves and it is quite easy to sew with.
The dress pattern was made using the Emily pattern by Violette Field Threads.
See how the Voile has so much body and movement! Swoosh!!!
We want to see your photos! Use #PatBravoDesign #TheHeartlandBlogTour #HeartlandFabrics when you post your photos! That way we can inspire each other!!
