Hello, May! This month I am delighted to offer a closer look at the Gypsy Garden fabric collection by Genevieve Gail for Windham Fabrics. The rich tones in this collection are some of my favorites, I love the variety of small and large scale prints sprinkled with bold stripes and polka dots, and the fabric weight is perfect for everything from accessories to garments.
As we transition to warmer weather and longer days, our schedules will thankfully become much more leisurely. Kids need easy clothes that can effortlessly transition from lakeside to the playground to a backyard cookout. In preparation for our days to come, I’ve put together a little number that will fit your girly for years and years. Mix and match a few great fabrics, add a few special details to each and in no time you will have stitched up her very own summer wardrobe.
I have paired a few of the Gypsy Garden fabrics together to create Leisurely, a summer dress for your favorite kiddo. For the basic dress, I paired Gypsy Blossoms (Gold) with Bird Stencil (Gold), a combination that can be dressed up or down. But I couldn’t stop there, oh no– These fabrics were really too hard to resist, the colors are intensely rich and the printing has such a great depth to it. So I went ahead and put together a second variation on the dress pattern combining Textured Stripe (Sapphire) with Gypsy Jewels (Sapphire) and absolutely love this color and print combination for this dress!
Set aside an hour to get your Summer started off in a Leisurely fashion – I hope you enjoy the pattern and have fun personalizing and customizing these dresses. And if you make anything with Gypsy Garden or using our free PDF pattern, please show off your creations in the Sew,Mama,Sew! Flickr pool. Enjoy and happy making! xoxo
