Happy Fall y’all! I can say y’all now that I’ll be a Texas resident right?? I’m so excited to join a great line up of makers sewing up some goodness from our friends at Riley Blake for the Hand Picked fabric collection!
The Hand Picked collection was designed by Tammie Green for Riley Blake and released late October (which means you can shop from this link). This collection features gorgeous variations of the primary colors in super sweet floral bunches, scattered small dots and dainty flowers.
I sewed up the Luna pattern by Violette Field Threads to showcase the updated option of the button loop closure and skirt placket! You may have spotted this dress in the new tutorial section.
For the Luna bodice, I used the Spot Yellow print. I love the bright and cheerful hue of yellow!!
For the skirt, I sewed two widths of fabric of the Main Blue print. I adore those vibrant primary colors with just a touch of pink to make it extra girly and cute! Riley Blake quilting cotton has a great body for keeping the full shape of the skirt.
I sewed the ties with the Geranium White print which I thought brought a clean finish to the dress. Those dainty florals tossed about on the fabric just makes me smile!
Hand Picked reminds me of a gorgeous picnic in the park, running around the grass and picking wildflowers. With the temperatures starting to drop, this cheerful fabric will surely warm your heart!
Big thanks to the Riley Blake team for this beautiful fabric and fun opportunity to share what I’ve sewn up! You can check their blog for more inspiration from the amazing makers!
