Sewing: Citrus Sunrise Knits (Fiesta Fun Fabric Tour)

I was so excited when Dana asked me to participate in her Fiesta Fun Fabric tour, because, firstly, I love this fabric! And secondly, I was happy to have a deadline to force a sewing project or two into my schedule.

Who doesn't love this new line? It's really difficult to pick a favorite print. And then there's the whole "knit" or "woven" dilemma.  I decided to use some of each. These prints are so perfectly reminiscent of one of my other favorite fabrics: Mexican oilcloth.

I decided to combine some solid orange knit with these lemon and orange prints and make Scarlett a simple dress. The pattern is the Lyon  Sewing in No Man's Land.  I added the panel on the bottom because I didn't realize both girls would want something from this Citrus knit and I was short on fabric. I love the color blocking.

Tess's top is a riff on a dress pattern from Craftiness is Not Optional, one of my favorites: The Lulu Dress.  I created a high-low hemline because Tess has a few favorite shirts like that.

The tiered skirt was self-drafted. It was so easy and fun I'm wondering why I haven't yet made one for myself! I love this Papel Picado Naranja fabric.

Stay tuned because I couldn't stop sewing with this darling fabric.
