The Field Day Collection

Friday, August 16, 2013

I’ve been sewing up a storm with my Field Day fabrics by Josephine Kimberling, and I’m afraid I could just keep going. I decided to lump these together as a Field Day Collection primarily made of half yard cuts. Let’s get to the details!

This is always my favorite skirt to sew, and Avery’s favorite to wear. Little girls just love that twirl factor. The pattern is from a Bizz Kids summer 2009 issue. The fabrics are Butterfly Kaleidoscope Pink, Prairie Park Pink, and Hip to Be Square Orange.


The rolled hem foot and gathering foot for my sewing machine really helped speed things along.


Avery loves those butterflies and that the skirt goes so well with her cowboy boots.


Tandy’s dress was inspired by the way Josephine paired a denim shirt with the sample skirt I made for her photo shoot. I used the Snazziedrawers Ma Cherie pattern (now retired) for the bodice but changed up the skirt and straps a bit.


The fabrics for this dress include Prairie Park Pink for the bodice ruffle, Paisley Panache Pink for the main skirt, and Butterfly Kaleidoscope Pink for the bottom ruffle.


I wanted something other than halter straps to carry this dress into fall. I think these straps inspired by a pin on Pinterest will make this dress great for layering.


The final piece in the collection is a skirt I sewed up to donate to charity along with the lovely ladies over at Simple Simon & Co. during their Skirting the Issue event. I’ll be donating this item to a local pregnancy care center.


I paired the Field Day Garden Floor White with Tanya Whelan’s Darla check. A few crochet embellishments give it a little pop.
