Pinch Me!! I couldn't believe my good fortune when Patty asked me to pick from her new Riley Blake knits to sew up a Rachel Dress for the pattern cover and quilt market. Patty has all the details of her latest fabric release on the Modkid blog today. These knits were a dream to work with. They are super soft with great stretch and recovery. I used the Vivid Fireworks in Grape.
I've already told you here and here how much my daughters' and I love the Rachel pattern, so I won't gush anymore. Except to say that I love the idea of using the pattern with a couple modifications as shown here to make separates. A summer shirt with some Zoey shorts would be so cute! Or, vice versa, a skirt with the Zoey top. Hmmm.......
Tandy hasn't realized yet, that she won't be able to wear this again until after quilt market. She has become quick attached to dresses and nightgowns lately!! Hopefully, the slight Cheetos mark on the inside will go unnoticed. ;)
Don't forget the Bundle Up sale ends Monday, so grab these great patterns at a great price while you can.
