A moment in time .....

Posted by Ellies Handmade on

As summer fades away we are just left with a scattering of flowers in our gardens, but oh so many gorgeous florals to choose from in the newest Riley Blake fabric range, Moments.
Moments is designed by Minki Kim, incorporating seasonal colour changes, beautiful quotes in the most stunning colour palette. I was immediately drawn to the main Fuschia and the contrasting soft aqua blossom prints.

Teagan, a new dress pattern by Violette Fields Threads, gave me the opportunity to include a little flat piping into the bodice which I thought was a cute way to give it a little extra and highlight the raglan sleeve. The nice thing about this pattern is that it is unlined, so its yardage require to make the dress isn't crazy! 
I made a few small changes to the pattern, I opted to extend the neckline bias to create a tie bow at the back, rather than the button and loop, and also added a contrast hemline to showcase that beautiful aqua blossom fabric.

Happy sewing!
