Sonata Showcase

Sonata Showcase

What? I blogged?!!!! Hello, blogging world. It’s been awhile since we meet.

First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Today is my stop on the Sonata Showcase and I am very excited to share my make with you! Amy Sinibaldi, one of Art Gallery Fabrics Designers, recently released her 7th collection and this is maybe my favorite. I love the airy, bright and sweet look she infuses to each of her collections and Sonata is no different. 

Sonata is designed from Amy’s love of classical music, particularly Ludwig van Beethoven.

The hardest part of this make was not only deciding who to sew for , myself or my daughter, but which print or prints to use. I decided to sew for myself  because I am working to grow my handmade wardrobe as well as adding new Spring pieces. This collection is chalk full of beautifully bright colors and floral prints. One of them has the most adorable strawberry accent ever.

I chose to use Ink Night for the skirt.  To go with it I made two tops.  I used Floral No 9 in Bold for one and the other was made with Pastoral Rayon in Crescendo.   

All 3 pieces are amazingly beautiful and Spring ready!

The patterns I chose to compliment the Sonata fabric for the skirt is the Justine pattern by Ready to Sew.  For the top I chose the Ogden Cami from True Bias

My favorite part of this skirt is the pockets! HUGE HUGE pockets!

I am so happy to have made the skirt with the simple black and white print. I can match it with so many different prints or a simple solid.  I plan to wear this on Easter Sunday.  Now to decide which top to wear, maybe a mid-day switch-a-roo??!!! HA!

I totally dig that low back! Eeeek!

Until next time

Amy Sinibaldi, Playground Showcase

Well, happy first day of Fall!! Ironically, when I was planning out my project for the showcase I wanted to incorporate Fall into my garment and photos. Little did I know the first day of Fall was also my day to share on the Showcase Tour. Too perfect right!!?!

Amy Sinibaldi’s newest collection with Art Gallery Fabrics , Playground, released a couple months ago . She is also the creative talent behind the Paperie Fabric collection. Amy did such an amzing job capturing childhood memories. Don’t you remember palying hopscotch with your best friend or praying for a gust of wind to lift your plastic kite. I mean seriously I tried so many times to fly that kite!

For the Showcase I choose the He Loves Me Plum VOILE fabric for the main portion and Posy Chain Freshlilly for the collar. I have become infatuated with Voile fabric lately!

I modified the Pepper pattern by lengthing the skirt and creating a Maxi and also leaving off the sleeves. The Pepper is my 6th pattern with Violette Field Threads and I am pretty excited to be adding Tween Pepper soon!

This Plum floral was the perfect color to start the Fall Season! This was a vast difference from the Playground outfit I made for Art Gallery Fabrics Lookbook….
