Orange Crush

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Orange and red have really never dominated my color palate, but lately I'm loving orange. Bright vibrant orange, none of that burnt orange ugly shade. (Let me hear a Whoop!) This one screams happy summer lollipops or festive pumpkin time too.

Here are the details. The pattern is brand new from Jona G of Fabritopia. This is view C of the Sunny Scallop Dress. I can't wait to sew up the scallop version too! The pattern is fairly simple, but I had to make some notes to remind myself of little things the next time around. I also didn't use as much fabric as the pattern indicates. The main fabric is from the Weekends line by Erin McMorris. The lining at the bottom and the ruffles are from the loved Jennifer Paganelli.

Can you tell how much trouble I have narrowing down the pictures to put on the blog? It's impossible some days. I'm usually grateful to get one or two good ones, but yesterday was a good day. Of course, the bottom action shots show it all.

Here's the good news! I have enough fabric left over to list this one in the shop. I know, finally something new. Stop by the shop later today for the listing


  1. OH so cute! I just made some Weekends pants! The bicycles. And yes she is the LOVED JP! Look how sweet Avery is in that top! I told Deanne about Jona's patterns. She really needs those patterns. Cute! I just love how it all works together!

  2. Perfect as always, this dress is too cute. She is the perfect model of course :)

  3. Beautiful!! I love your fabrics and I love the version you picked (I was wondering if anyone would do a non-scalloped version). I'm so tickled to see this (your daughter is darling)!
