Art Gallery Fabrics Stripe Tour

tourpic

I’m thrilled to be joining Karly from Paisley Roots for the Art Gallery Fabrics Stripe Tour.  Karly and I very first bonded over our shared love of all things striped so this was a definite treat for both of us.  I’m happy to be joining a great group of sewists to share these amazing fabrics with you.  Make sure you check out their posts this week as well!

Stripes are a favorite of mine and these looks were so much fun to create.  I had the hardest time picking which fabrics to use.  Just take a look at all the killer stripes here.  You want them all too, right?!  The colors are just divine and there are so many to choose from.  They are yarn-dyed meaning they’ll stay just as pretty after a million washes as they look today.  Such a dream fabric!

In the end I just couldn’t get this classic black and white combo out of my head.  I used the Striped Bold Caviar and Striped Alike Caviar.  I love the creamy white with the bold black.  I think I already have five black and white stripe tees in my own closet but I’m so drawn to the combo.  There’s no such thing as too many black and white stripes in your wardrobe!

For my top I used the Pixie Tee and Dress from Chalk and Notch.  I love the optional side ties and knew it was the perfect place for a fun pop of fabric.  I used scraps from these pretty Art Gallery dresses and I love the combination.

A bold peacock print is such a fun touch!

I couldn’t bear to waste any of the leftovers so my little guy just had to have a tee too!  I used my go-to Jolly Roger Raglan pattern.  This bold stripe paired with a solid AGF knit in Sahara Sun is just checking all my boxes.  Stripes- check, mustard- check, cute boy- check 😉

This fun dress is the piece de resistance!  I used the Upton pattern from Blaverry (so sad it is no longer available!).  It’s one of my favorite patterns for combining fabrics and I’m always so happy with the results.

That back detail just makes me flip!

Add in that pretty contrast yoke and I’m head over heels!

We are so in love with our new pieces.  I can’t get over the quality of this fabric.  It was so nice to work with and is so soft and smooth.  I almost felt guilty using this amazing stuff on my kids.  I can tell it will hold up to all that they throw at it though making these a great addition to their closets.  Now to get my hands on all the colors…

Blaverry Upton

The Blaverry Upton has been on my wish list for awhile now.  That darling split back and contrast yoke just have my heart.  I was more than happy to jump on board the Upton Blog Tour celebrating it’s recent revamp.

My little one can’t get enough cozy dresses in her wardrobe and this one is absolutely adorable!

I used a cozy french terry combined with a super soft Robert Kaufman flannel- all from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  She would wear a dress everyday so this combination will be perfect once cooler temps stick around.

The Upton now features multiple sleeve lengths and all the features you love in a pdf pattern- layers, multiple measurement charts to get the perfect fit, detailed instructions, and a huge size range (2t-16).

I just love that wrapped neck binding and that yoke is to die for!  The pattern calls for all knit but I found this woven worked just lovely!  I think knit/woven combos are so fun and open up endless possibilities!

I think it would make a super adorable top too.  That back is just so on point!

I am part of the Blaverry Promo team so I received this pattern for free.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- WE LOVE BLAVERRY!  I feel like Christie just gets that struggle every mom and daughter has- finding fashionable, cute clothes that you both adore.  Blaverry has solved that dilemma at our house!
