The newest line from Raspberry Creek Fabric has hit the shop and it’s simply perfect! Corrine Wells Design really nailed this winter fabric line. It’s classic, simple, and so versatile. I was lucky enough to get to play with this gorgeous cardinal print. I chose the cotton jersey and paired it with this Robert Kaufman Carolina Gingham. I love the retro feel of this combo!
I used Adelyn’s Scoop Back Dress from Simple Life Pattern Co. It’s a favorite with my girls!
I did a couple of easy modifications. She wanted 3/4 sleeves so I simply cut the long sleeves a bit shorter. I also changed up the skirt because this girl can’t get enough maxi dresses! I used the width of the fabric but cut it in half to add pockets (almost a necessity now!). I used a pocket piece from the M4M Joy since I had it handy but any side inseam pocket would work. I measured from where the bodice hit her waist to the floor and added a hem allowance. I love to do them floor length to begin with because kids grow soooo fast and then they can possibly get a couple years wear out of them. I added clear elastic at the waist seam to help with the weight of the skirt. I did the higher scoop and it still works lovely with the bow.
Our favorite feature with this pattern is the darling bow back! Seriously a showstopper!
I’m excited to have a holiday dress done for her (don’t worry- I can never make just one!). I love that this fabric is not too Christmas-y and will work great all winter long. It reminds me so much of my sweet Grandma Lola and her love of birds. I get especially sentimental during the holidays and it just makes me so happy to see my little miss in this.
You can grab this fabric (and the rest of the line!) on sale through Thursday, October 19th for $1 off a yard. It will stick around in the shop until Christmas.
