Simple Life Pattern Co. Aria

Raspberry Creek Fabrics has just released their newest Spring CLUB line and it’s absolutely amazing.   My kids instantly claimed their favorite prints and I fell madly in love with these Coral Umbrella Flowers and knew I had to sew it up stat.  Corinne Wells, the designer behind this line, just nails it every…single…time.

I knew I wanted a pattern that would really let this fabric shine and the new Aria Dress from Simple Life Pattern Co. was just what I was after.  It’s a classic silhouette with a sweet bow back.  I had to run it by this cutie and she was as smitten as I was.

We chose to do the full back coverage so she could wear it to school.  The bows made it so fun to throw in a coordinating fabric, navy polka dots.  Nothing like a little party in the back!

I love sewing for this girl because she’s so hard to fit in ready-to-wear.  I did an 8 chest graded to a 10 waist with a 12 length.  Talk about a custom fit!  We chose a half sleeve hack to hopefully make this wearable now and then well into spring and summer.

We did the full circle skirt option for maximum twirl factor.  I don’t think a good twirl ever gets old!

She’s been wanting rain boots forever and these vibrant, fun yellow ones were just made for this fabric.  They will surely brighten even the gloomiest of rainy days!

The Aria features a darling neckline that I managed to botch.  Yep, sometimes you just gotta make do and this was one of those times.  Just means I’ll need to make another one to redeem myself 😉  Good thing little sis is already in line for her version!

After a couple of intense sews, this was my reward.  A quick, fun beautiful knit sew always cleanses the palate and gets me ready for the next big project!  Make sure you head over to Raspberry Creek Fabrics and check out the newest prints- they’re on sale through 2/14 for $1 off/yard.  Simple Life Pattern Company is celebrating three years of business with one of the biggest sales ever.  Head over to shop all the darling patterns for 40% off!  We’re big SLPCo fans around here and they pair fabulously with our favorite RCF fabrics!

    1. Thanks Tiffany! I swear by Soft Stretch hem tape (you can get it on Amazon). It makes hemming any knit garment easier but especially a circle skirt. You iron it on and then it folds up just perfectly- I don’t know what I’d do without it!
