Here is Part 2 of my Fall Release-Hummingbird Dresses
Beautiful Miss A.
I’m super excited to be bringing several new and updated original Ruffle Dresses to my collection. I used the lovely and amazing Ruffle Fabric, LLC . I absolutely love this fabric and love the ladies behind it. They are so sweet and are ready to answer any question you have!! Plus, have you seen their website?! So many colors to chose from. The possibilities are endless.
I chose to make SERVERAL Hummingbird dresses. Not only are the dress results beautiful but they are so easy to modify into my own ‘sweet’ style.

Gotta love the “V” back
Great Dress for twirling!!!
The next dress is made with Men’s suiting Fabric. I love the contrast of Men’s fabric and girly ruffles. I zig zagged the edge of the ruffle to appeared as frayed.
These next two dresses are truly near and dear to my heart. I have been a dancer since I was a child. Even today I’ll crank the tunes and have a dance party with my kids. I recently made a custom order for an all black version of my very first pink/black Ruffle dress and immediately thought of Swan Lake. This inspired me to bring back a fresh updated version one of my originals as well as the new variation.

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!
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
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.
This Outfit works great for Summer and Fall!
