Fiesta Fun pics - 1

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.

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.

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.
