It is no secret among my sewing friends that the most frequent pattern I use is the Gloria by Peekaboo Patterns Shop. With three slender girls, it is helpful to be able to custom make comfortable knit play dresses for them.
As soon as I saw this new fabric line, I knew I would be purchasing some. This is the Idlewild Line by Pattern Anthology for Riley Blake. I purchased two other fabrics in the collection and cannot wait to show you the projects I have planned!
I had initially planned on making this a full length dress since it is cooling off quickly where we live and the girls need warm clothes for church. However, I accidentally sucked part of the bodice into my serger blade and decided to make a peplum top since my girls wear leggings almost every day in the winter! I think it looks great on my pre-tween.
While there is a circle skirt and peplum add-on for the Gloria, I typically use the skirt piece from the Twist and Shout for my oldest. She prefers her clothes to have a slimmer fit, so it is nice to have the full circle skirt option and the half circle option.
Check back soon for the mash-up I have planned with the rest of my Idlewild fabric!
