It’s my stop on the Riley Blake Jubilee Blog Tour today! This fabric collection is absolutely darling and I’m excited to be sharing it will you guys.
I always let my girls help pick fabric for their makes but they struggled this time because they seriously wanted them all. You know my oldest will always pick red if given the choice and she was crushing on the main prints in this line bad. I was surprised when she settled on the navy colorway but secretly thrilled to be adding a little different color to her wardrobe. My younger daughter looks darling in blues and loved the dainty print of this ditzy floral. Together they coordinate but aren’t too matchy for these sisters.
If I could pick my favorite color combinations of the moment these would be it. I love navy, yellow, seafoam, and pink together. They are perfect colors for fall but also work really well for this weird warm transition season we’re in too.
The floral prints work so well with this season too. The hint of summer brights and warm fall colors make these fabrics something I think they’ll wear year-round.
Let’s talk about these dresses. My oldest daughter is quickly sizing out of many of our favorite patterns. I’m grateful for companies like Violette Fields Threads and Hey June Handmade who are now branching into tween pattern size lines. This is the Zoey Dress from Violette Fields Threads. My daughter still isn’t quite in a 10 width but she’s at least a 12 or 14 height so I struggle choosing between the tween and child patterns. In this case, the extra ease in the bodice works with this style and the tween sizing looks great on her.
I love the boho-feel of this pattern and think it’s perfect for this print. The cute puff sleeve, elastic cuff and bias bound neckline are pretty features that add to the free spirit look of this dress.
Little sister got a Sutton Dress from Made for Mermaids. I wanted something that had a similar vibe as her sister’s and the Sutton was a great choice. I wanted this print to really shine but knew it needed a little trim and buttons to make it pop.
I absolutely adore those sleeves! Such a sweet touch. I did modify this pattern to use a gathered rectangle skirt (the width of the fabric) instead of the gathered circle skirt the pattern calls for. This was not really a style choice as it was a lack of fabric choice (that’s what I get for changing my plan for this fabric at the last minute!).
