Style Maker Fabrics Spring Blog Tour 2020!

Style Maker Fabrics Spring Blog Tour 2020!

Hi!!

Wow. It’s been awhile since I have blogged so I am very thrilled to be blogging about Style Makers Fabric Spring Tour today!

Floral

Spring is here!! Well here in SoCal Spring arrived a month ago. Flowers are blooming and the weather has been in the 70’s and 80’s (except for the day I took pics of course, it was pouring rain). So when Michelle asked if I would like to participate in the Spring tour I was more than willing to get started on my Spring Wardrobe.  Of course, the hard part was deciding which fabric to go with because there were several that I wanted. She also has many delicate Swiss Dots and Eyelet fabrics in the prettiest Spring colors, that are to die for! I decided to pick this beautiful blue (think Chambray), white and black floral shirting fabric to pair with McCall’s M8036 (Sasha).

Let me first start off chatting about the fabric. It is a light to medium weight fabric with a moderate drape which is typical for a shirting fabric. I washed it on delicate/cold cycle prior to cutting and I experienced the typical amount of shrinkage one would expect for a cotton fabric. The background has a Chambray look and goes right along with the Pantone color of the year, Classic Blue. I am thrilled to add more garments that are predominantly blue.  

Next up, let’s chat about the Sasha dress. This is my first McCall’s dress in about 5 years! I was so impressed with their new Spring patterns I was ready to jump back in and try again. Now, I have always had a hard time figuring out my sizing which is kind of the reason why I stopped sewing with their patterns. I did sew a muslin of the bodice prior to cutting out the delicious fabric. The muslin was pretty close to the right fit but still needed some small changes to the bodice. I have a 33 ½” bust but usually always size up to 34” because I feel I have a slightly broad back. I choose to make a size 12 however after making the muslin I modified sewing the bodice along the side seams. I started out sewing at the armhole raw edge with a 1” seam allowance and then graded out to a ½” SA at the bottom waistline raw edge (normal SA is 5/8″).  The back bodice was a perfect fit across the shoulder blades on me.

I did some additional hacks to the pattern to make it uniquely me! First off, I shortened the skirt pattern pieced by 1” and then hemmed the skirt with a 2” SA instead of 1 ¼”. I really did not want the dress to be too long on my legs.

The last modification I did was to switch out the original sleeve with the sleeve from the Brynn pattern, M8035. The sleeve has a smaller sleeve cap yet is still billowy. To duplicate the length of the original sleeve, I shortened the new sleeve pattern piece 5”.  I kept the sleeve band pattern piece from the original sleeve. So overall had a similar feel but the sleeve cap is not as full.

I want thank Michelle for asking me to join the Style Maker Fabric Blog Tour!!! I absolutely love the fabric and look forward to making more Spring items with the fabric I bought from the shop. Oh and guess what??? They are doing a special US shipping deal, only $5!!

Until next time!

Everlasting Blog Tour

Everlasting Blog Tour

Good morning friends! Today is my stop on the Everlasting Blog Tour by my sweet friend Sharon Holland! I have been a HUGE fan and supporter of Sharon for the last few years. She has become someone I talk with often, sharing my ups and downs. I truly love her and her beautiful designs!!

Everlasting was created by Sharon as a tribute to her daughter’s wedding. The collection truly embodies a romantic, summery wedding.

This is Sharons 7th collection with Art Gallery Fabrics.

Being an apparel sewist I was very drawn to the collection as I felt they translated well to clothing as well as quilting. The first time I saw the collection I immediately pictured dresses and skirts on mannequins in Anthropology and boy do I LOVE Anthropology!!! So I was VERY excited to get sewing with Everlasting! Especially the Cherished Wishes and Flower Keeper prints. Ok, so what did I make? Actually the question is what did I not make with?!! So far I have made a maxi skirt, Cami, 3 girls dresses and 1 teen summer top. Have a look at these beauties… 🙂

Lugu Blog Tour

Lugu Blog Tour

Hello friends! Today is my stop on Jessica Swift’s Lugu Blog Tour! This is her 3rdcollection since becoming a designer with Art Gallery Fabrics.   Just like her other collections, this one is bright, vibrant, playful and I love how she always incorporates animals into her designs. 

I had already made the Owl Stuffie using the Lugu Collection for Art Gallery Fabrics Lugu Look-book. The pattern I used was the Violette Field Threads pattern, Olive.  When this opportunity for the blog tour came up, I immediately thought of making a matching dress for a little girl. I mean how sweet is it to have a matching dress to go with a new stuffie. 

The Owl was inspired by her Sova Nightlight print and the ruffle around the Owl’s neck was inspired by the Sleep Tight print.  

For the dress and Owl Stuffie skirt I use the Odyssey Aurora print. The ruffle is made with Lumina Dawn and the wings and legs are made with Konstelacijja Maagia. 

I used my new pattern, with Violette Field Threads, Spencer to create the Lugu dress. I made the sleeveless version and kept to the original pattern with only one added detail; lace trim at the hemline.

Lace Trim can be found at Hobby Lobby.

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. 

aaaEH4A0585

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. 

aaaEH4A0719

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

aaaEH4A0627

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

aaaEH4A0816

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! 

aaaEH4A0684

I totally dig that low back! Eeeek!

aaaEH4A0711

Well friends, I hope you enjoyed my stop on the Sonata Showcase! Hope you have been able to follow along so far but if not, catch up on Amy’s IG page!

Until next time

Since my daughter is now at the ripe old age of 13, I have to let her pick the fabric and what pattern I am going to use. I was not surprised when she picked Tigris Indigo. She is a HUGE animal lover and has always been drawn to animal designs and prints. I was excited as well as those are some of my favorite colors on her. The beautiful deep but bright blue enhances her eye color and the red accents her rosy cheeks and lips.

aaaaaEH4A3064.jpg

aaaaEH4A3152.jpg

I currently have a thing for black and white photos so I took my favorite pic and editing it to black and white. While it does not show the fabric details I think it portrays more emotion.

aaaaaEH4A3152

I was working on my 1001 pattern (kidding) for Violette Field Threads, Olive, so naturally, I used it to make one for the blog tour. I did the top length since this teen prefers them over dresses.

For my photoshoot we set out on a Saturday morning to our local Farmers Market. Life style photo shoots are becoming my favorite. I also felt this was a perfect setting to complement the red and yellow floral print.

Fabric used:

Blue Shirt Blog Tour-Blue Carolina

Blue Shirt Blog Tour-Blue Carolina

Hey all, 

Happy Thursday! I am over the moon with what I am sharing today! Christopher, The Tattooed Quilter, has been one of my favorite Quilters for years. I have been stalking , I mean following, him for quite some time on IG and was finally lucky enough to meet him in person at Spring Quilt Market. So why was he there? Well, he was introducing is FIRST fabric collection with Riley Blake called Blue Carolina! Me? Well, to drool over fabric of course! Silly!!

aanewEH4A4265

I am pretty sold on the fact this fabric line was made for my daughter! lol  Dogs are her favorite thing in the world! I am pretty sure she would own every dog in the world if we let her. Also Blue is such an amazing color on her, it really makes her blue eyes pop!! 

aanewEH4A4336-2

While visiting Christopher’s booth at Quilt Market I fell head over heels in love with a top he had modeling his new fabric. I really really really wanted to draft a top similar for the tour but totally ran out of time since I am busy getting ready for new Fall and Winter patterns. Booo! Kidding! It is exciting to be drafting for the upcoming season, but it also limits my time for the fun extras. So I found a similar Simplicity pattern that I used and made some modifications to fit my daughter. 

aanewEH4A4313

One such modification was I left the edge of the flounce raw. I zig zagged the raw edge which helps make for a distressed look. You could also add fray check if you want to make sure it does not continue to fray even more. 

aanewEH4A4277

Can you see what is on the flounce fabric? Cut, Sew, Repeat 

aanewEH4A4337

I typically take photos in a park or under a tree but Christopher asked us to take photos in an Urban setting. So when I first saw that photo above I was like OMG, there is a person and cars in my photo. NOOOOO! But honestly I love it now. It maybe my new favorite landscape for photos.  Funny thing is the women’s dress totally works to my favor. HA!!!

Wonderful Things Blog Tour- Going Home To Roost

Wonderful Things Blog Tour- Going Home To Roost

WOT-blog-tour

 

The gentle whispers of joy fill our minds as positive affirmations bring inspiration and encouragement. Wonderful things inspires to delight with happy hues and delicate prints to uplift your spirits.

Hello All,

Welcome to the Wonderful Things Blog tour. Bonnie from Going Home to Roost created the Wonderful Things with the same beauty that she brings to all of her collections with Art Gallery Fabric. This collection has two color ways, Honest Whispers and Honeyed Wonders.

Honest Whispers is soft and subtle pastels while Honeyed Wonders is Bold and Bright.

aanewEH4A3520

My Grandmother is my Wonderful Thing (my favorite person). She is the Matriarch of our family and my last Grandparent alive. She is 92 years and only stopped working 2 years ago! She is delicate yet strong, strong minded yet compassionate, independent yet family focused. I would be lucky if I was half as amazing as she is. She is well know in our family for her amazing food. One of my favorite dished she makes is Menudo. I know, not everyone has a stomach for that dish. LOL

 A couple of weeks ago she fell and cracked her femur.  Wait let me back up, She fell on a Friday did not tell anyone until the next day, because she did not want to disturb them. She only took some pain medicine and laid down. However the next day she could not walk. That is so her! Too strong for her own good! She is currently at a rehab facility and the Docs, Nurses and Physical Therapist are all blown away by her progress and determination to get back on her feet. They wanted to send her home last week because she is a rock star and already doing very well but the Doc requested one more X-ray and discovered, what they had previously thought was a cracked femur was actually a full break in the femur head. She is strong and determined to get back home and I am sure she will by this week.  I have always looked up to my Grandmother but more and more as I have gotten older I have prayed to be just like her. She raised 5 children, worked full time and cared for my Grandfather during his medical battles. She is also the oldest of 10 siblings which she also helped to raise. She is intertwined in every holiday tradition I have known since I was born and also in my kids lives. I could not be more proud of my family as well. I have watched them all rally around her. Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles have flown in for out of town to gather around her and support her healing.  Truly blessed to be apart of this wonderful family. Such a Wonderful Thing!

I love the Words to Live by.  I have been looking forward to making a top for my daughter to wear. I am secretly hoping she looks down at her shirt and is reminded to be true to herself!  Anything that can help a Mom out, I will take it!! Thanks Bonnie!

I have been waiting to use Citrus Sunrise since Dana made this ADORABLE outfit for her daughter. I mean isn’t it the most ridiculously cute outfit you have ever seen??!!!  I love the freshness of the fabric print. Is that a thing? Well it is in my head! lol 

ANEWEH4A8571

Cassie and I meet up at a local Nursery for a afternoon of pics, berry pie and homemade lemonade. Oh and BBQ dinner! When Cassie and I did our first photoshoot for the Fiesta Fun lookbook  we traveled to San Diego and took pictures at the Spanish Village. This Nursery brought a totally different backdrop to the photos.

She is a talented seamstress and a sweet friend (that just happens to own a fabric shop in town)!!

AANEWEH4A5759

So let’s chat really quickly on how I decided what project I would make for the Blog Tour. It all started with Sharon and Maureen’s Sewcial Bee Sample, they inspired me to make my first Quilt Block. Then I got a big head (blahahahaha) and thought hmmm, let take that Quilt Block and make a dress with it.

AAANEWEH4A6431

I choose their Flying Geese Block.  I will say though, next time I would place the flying geese straight down the middle of the bodice instead of down the sides like it is now.  I am a bit obsessed with the back and I do feel this is a very special dress. True labor of love!!!
