Tea with Bea from Riley Blake Designs

This girl has too many dresses as you all can probably guess but I can’t help but keep sewing them for her! These gorgeous prints from the Tea with Bea line from Riley Blake Designs were just meant for this dress.

This whole line is the best of all spring has to offer. The pretty soft hues, florals, and fun geometric prints are just so lovely!

I used the Sprigs Lake for the main and the Honeycomb Coral for the bodice. I love this combo! The colors in these prints are some of my favorites on her and are just so springy.

I sewed up the Tween Ashton Dress and Top from Violette Fields Threads. I usually show my girls all of the new releases from our favorite pattern companies and she immediately fell in love with one of the modeled versions of this dress. I’ve been patiently waiting for the right fabric to sew it up!

Now if you’re thinking, “WAIT! Those sleeves go against all of my rules for sewing for my tween/teen”, I was right there with you. They are so dramatic and usually not my girls style but I was excited to give it a try. Sometimes it’s good to push her style a bit and since she liked the examples she’d seen I felt good giving it a go.

She loved it during the shoot and I love that it’s different from her other dresses.

I sewed up a size 10 with a 14 skirt length. This girl keeps stretching right out and is trying to catch up to big sis!

You can grab Tea with Bea from your local quilt shop or online shop!
