This fabric was designed a few years ago by Dana Willard, as part of her Day Trip collection inspired by road tripping through Texas. I have always loved the fun, whimsical prints and colors in this collection, and actually purchased a cut of this same fabric to sew myself a dress in May 2018 (the photos we used to announce that I had a bun in the oven!). My little one LOVES tacos (they are second place as her favorite dinner food, topped only by chicken and “cha wise” – aka french fries!), and always comments on the tacos on that dress when I wear it. So when I had the opportunity to sew with it again with Minerva, I jumped on it!
Is there anything more lovely and romantic than Liberty fabric? I’ve admired it from afar for quite awhile, but this was my first time working with it. It is definitely worthy of all the hype that it receives! I went all in with my first cut of Liberty fabric – a top for me, a dress for my Mini, and a couple of ridiculous matching accessories to top it off!
Hello! I am so excited about his post today! I was asked a month or so back to take part in the Coffee + Thread Fall Blog Tour, and I was truly so excited. Olga had asked a couple of years ago if I would like to be a part of the Madrid Dress Blog Tour, but unfortunately my schedule just wouldn’t allow for it at the time. I was pretty bummed, but I LOVED seeing all the beautiful dresses that were showcased as part of the tour. When another chance came around to participate, you can bet I was jumping on board!
When Super Bison Patterns reached out to me to try out their patterns, I was very excited. I was in the middle of thinking up great ideas for Mama / Mini Matching dresses for my tiny girl’s 2nd Birthday Celebration, and I’d already picked out some beautiful fabric but I hadn’t landed on the perfect patterns just yet. So when I started looking into the patterns by Super Bison, and landed on the Dune and Mini Dune dresses, it was all sorted. Check out my thoughts on the pattern and fabrics I used to make our dresses!
