I hope you all have had a fantastic week so far! So this is one exciting blog tour. If you have not been following, get caught up now on Dana’s Blog or Instagram! Ok, did you get caught up? Pretty amazing right?!!! Now, I get to share my project…
Dana’s second collection with Art Gallery Fabrics, it just as fun, vibrant and summery as her first, Boardwalk Delight. I mean Piñata Confetti is begging to be used in party decorations! I actually used Mexican Dress Midnight and Piñata Confetti together for AGF lookbook for Fiesta Fun.
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
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.
Just look at that cutie pie and her adorable headband!
Outfit details: I used the Basic Dress Pattern by Cali Faye. I love the curved hem!!
What happens after the photos are done (or so they thought)…
Aren’t they too cute?
See more pics and details about what Cassie made on her blog on Monday!
Thank you Dana for having us apart of the Blog Tour!!!
I can’t wait to share with you what the AMAZING Dana from MADE has just released! Her new pattern, The First Day Dress/Top. I can’t thank Dana enough for letting me test this NEW pattern. I mean this woman is the Queen of the blogging world and even more importantly, she is very sweet!!!
Nitty Gritty: (this pattern has so much to offer)

(wow that was a lot!)
For my Test I choose the A-line Dress with no sleeves. I love the silhouette of this dress, however, the next dress I make will be 1 size larger. My daughter had a growth spurt and did not let me know, HA! One of my favorite parts (I have so many) of the A-Line pattern was I only had to cut ONE pattern piece, yes ladies ONE! Can I get a High Five?!? Another favorite in working with this pattern was it showed me how to fully line the dress. I love it when I can learn something new from a pattern.
Fabric by Josephine Kimberling, Hope Chest by Blend

This pattern is so well written and with beautiful pictures that it would be great for an Advanced Beginner Seamstress. Even an advanced seamstress may learn some new tricks like I did.
