Welcome to day two of the Succulence Blog Tour! That’s right… today I have the lucky job of showing off a brand new fabric line by Bonnie Christine! I have been a fan of Bonnie’s work for so long, all of her patterns are so beautiful (I even used some of them in Bee’s Nursery) and I have taken two of her courses. She’s super talented and it’s quite the honor to be taking place in her latest Blog Tour!
Lets talk about the gorgeous line, Succulence! Succulents represent the ability to thrive and constantly create new growth through absorbing even the tiniest bits of water. Bonnie pays homage to this perseverance through a study of these plants in vibrant hues of earthy plum, sunlit copper and both pristine & opaque greens.
I was drawn to the green floral aka “Rosette Rain” (obvious if you know me) and I knew it would make a perfect Lillian Dress. Both the fabric and pattern have a bit of a 60′s flair to me! I love this pattern by Haley from Welcome to the Mouse House (you can find it HERE) and even though it looks a little advanced it’s a really fun sew! I especially LOVE the way the pintucks look with this fabric!
The Succulence line is now available HERE and at other online retailers… if you have never felt the quality of Art Gallery cotton then you are missing out! PS how adorable is the back?
I had to bribe my model with crackers because 19 month old models can be so particular. She has two older brothers so she loves things like balls and trucks and being outdoors but this girl loves a girly dress!! When I was trying it on her for size she couldn’t stop twirling and was mad when I took it off… I call that at success :) I love that after years of sewing for her she’s finally starting to love the things I make her!
I can’t wait to get my hands on some more Succulence soon and make a million more baby girl dresses!
