Hello friends. Like so many of you, I am smitten by the new Idle Wild Knits by Pattern Anthology for Riley Blake. And I was fortunate to receive some of it before it hits the stores (predicted for later this month).
This knit fabric is "Idle Wild Triangles" in Blue with some solid navy knit from Riley Blake for the neck tie. It is super soft and even more beautiful in person. Scarlett put it on and asked for pajamas because she wants to wear it around the clock.
The sewing pattern is the Metro Tee Dress, which I've been designing and playing with for some time now. I started with a short sleeve, round neck tee shirt for myself and have added a few iterations, such as a three-quarter sleeve for pushing up and a tie neck. Then I decided it would be a great pattern for girls too. And why not include a dress? Which then makes me think, and why not a dress for women too? And that's how it goes, which is why it's still in the works. That and the fact that my three little ladies keep me pretty busy.
Anyway, I was so happy for a chance to sew with this beautiful knit fabric! I'm sure this dress will be one of Scarlett's favorites. I have more of this fabric left so perhaps I'll make a Metro Tee for Tess. And after seeing the clothing popping up on the fabric tour I'm dreaming of the other Idle Wild fabrics and all the things I would do with them.
