I’m so excited to be taking part in another one of Bonnie Christine’s blog tours. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Bonnie’s work and her latest collection, Forest Floor for art Gallery Fabric, might just be my new favorite! Inspired by her experience of living in the forest, Bonnie creates a whimsical world where dreams of a magical place come to life. Forest Floor hopes to ignite the exploration of forest curiosities, and take you on an adventure filled with green and oak flora and delicate berry tinted fauna that inhabits the wondrous depths of the mountains.
I fell in love with this print, Wild Posy Flora, specifically and I just knew that Bee had to have a dress made from this amazing fabric.
I was looking for a simple, summery maxi dress that looked effortless to compliment the gorgeous fabric. I thought about drafting something myself but then I came across this Border Fabric Sundress from Lil Blue Boo and it was perfect! It’s even a free tutorial with no pattern pieces, seriously couldn’t be easier. I obviously didn’t use border fabric so I changed the name to the 30 minute sundress because it literally took me 30 minutes, from start to finish people!! I even had time to add a little Taylor Made tag :)
Then, I had to add some lace trim to the bottom just to make it extra ethereal.
You can purchase Forest Floor HERE. Be sure to check out Going Home to Roost for all of the other tour details and to check out all of the other amazing designers who got their hands on the pretty fabric. Yesterday, April and Mickey from Sweet Girl Studio shared a gorgeous mini quilt and tomorrow Maureen Cracknell has an amazing project planned just to name a few! Also.. because someone might ask… Bee’s bow is Bloomies Handmade and her adorable shoes are from Amazon HERE. Thanks for having me Bonnie!
