Hello Sweetheart from Riley Blake Designs is here and it’ll have your heart swooning! We love the darling retro feel and it has us gearing up for Valentine’s. It’s such a sweet collection full of bright colors and playful prints.
The Gradient Heart is black was such a great choice for my oldest. It’s got a modern edge to it that was so well suited for one of our favorite dress patterns.
I love the clean lines of the Blake Dress from Mingo and Grace (you can see our other versions here, here, and here). Those big box pleats and hidden inseam pockets are the stuff that makes me giddy!
Can you even stand those ombre hearts?!! The colors are just so fun!
For this dress, I made a size 8 width with a 12 length in the skirt. She actually measures into a 7 width but I was hoping by sizing up it’d fit a bit longer. The problem is this girly keeps growing up and not out so I’m pretty sure it’ll be too short the next time I blink! Little sister is already patiently waiting for her to outgrow it 😉
Speaking of litttle sis- she got a Samantha Skirt from Made for Mermaids paired with an Ocotillo Leotard from Honeydew Kisses with handmade suspenders.
This floral print is just too cute! It reminds me so much of some of my favorite art when I was growing up. Definitely brings me back to the early 90’s with fond memories! Paired with Riley Blake black and white striped knit gives it a fun, contemporary twist. This combo is just so adorable!
She loves anything with pockets and thanked me profusely the minute she tried on this skirt. Both patterns were new to me and I really liked them both. The Samantha skirt pattern uses the same fabric for suspenders but I left them off this version. It features an elastic back waistband so hopefully she’ll get to wear this awhile too. I had to do some grading for the leo using a size 8 width and a 10 length. It worked out really well and both girls have requested more (a sure sign of a great pattern!).
We picked the warmest day we could for pics and it was a balmy 40 degrees when we did our shoot. The sodas were both props and bribes for these two troopers! The things these girls put up with for their dear old mum!
Thanks for joining us today on our stop on the Hello Sweetheart Blog Tour. Riley Blake provided us the fabric to sew up but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
