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.

Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour

Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour

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.

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!!!

Violette Field Threads Vivienne Review and Giveway

Violette Field Threads Vivienne Review and Giveway

IMG_4050

Hello Ladies!!

I am so excited to share with you the NEW and AMAZING Vivienne Misses Pattern by Violette Fields Threads. I first want to say thank you to Violette Field Threads for the wonderful opportunity to sew and review one of your patterns. I have always been a fan of their patterns and Vivienne is no exception!

IMG_4069

Let first start with the nitty gritty:
*Blouse Sizing XXS-XXL
*Skirt sizing 0-16
*Short sleeve top
*Button Down the Back
*Overskirt and Underskirt are separate
*Overskirt closed by 4-5 buttons

IMG_4049 IMG_4042  IMG_4084

Ok, lets get to the fun stuff, YAY!
I made the Blouse with a Cotton Nylon Lace fabric that I have been hoarding from Jo-Ann. I am so into Coral right now so when I saw it I knew it needed to join my secret fabric stash (don’t tell my hubby). For the Overskirt I chose a fabric from the Arizona Collection called Tomahawk Stripe. I love this entire fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabric.  I mean what’s not to love, the colors are amazing and so is the their fabric. So here is the only modiciation I did to the underskirt, I used a premade ruffle fabric that I purchased from Ruffle Fabric, LLC. The fabric is so yummy and it saved me so much time, yahoo! I made the Underskirt per the pattern’s instructions then pinned the ruffle fabric to the skirt. You could of course use only the ruffle fabric as your Underskirt, but I wanted to save what I had for more projects! 😉

Violette Field Threads hit it out of the park with this outfit. Not only is it a well written pattern but you will be looking stylish when you get finished sewing it. It took me less then a day to sew up from start to finish. Don’t be intimidated to sew yourself a Vivienne , VFT does a great job in not only explaining but also visually show you step by step instructions. I chose the XS for the Blouse and Size 2 for the skirt and the fit was right on.
