Remember this gorgeous stack of fabrics I got from Hawthorne Threads last time?? they are just the happiest things: so soft !
I am working on a quilt, but it can be a long process for me ...
Vous vous souvenez de ce lot de tissus splendides qui m'avaient été offerts par la boutique Hawthorne Threads?
Et bien je suis en train de coudre un quilt avec ces belles couleurs mais un quilt, ça prend du temps! alors en attendant de la finir, et pour me distraire un peu, j'ai cousu cette robe pour l'anniversaire de ma fille, dont le thème est "cheval et cow-boys!
So, in the meanwhile, I could not resist sewing a little party dress for my daughter's" horse " themed birthday party.
I had this print from Wee Wanders collection my girl loves and I decided to create a colorblock bodice to match.
I pulled out Salmon, Azalea, Teal and avocado as well as white, which are the colors also found on the Wee Wanders print.
The pattern is a mix of the Hanami dress (nothing better than the fit of this dress!) + the Lotta dress.
this mix was inspired by a dress Rachel from Stitched together made a while ago, only she mixed the hanami with the geranium! Just like she did , I took off 2 inches of the bodice length.
other dress by Straight Grain.
I just played with fabric and it felt really good. Cut and sew, cut and sew- a bit like "quilt as you go".. delicious.
The back is fun too:
I want to thank Hawhtorne Threads who have gifted this beautiful bundle of fabrics.
But rest assured that all opinions expressed here are mine! I support this shop because I love it and because I think they have the best range of fabrics and the best customer service! I would not otherwise.
