It's Fun Friday at Mabel Madison, and Heather is joining us with some magic created from Stenzo poplins. Lots of little girls love their dollies, and a bunny dolly with an outfit 'just like mine' really ups the game!
Before I jump into telling you more about the patterns that I sewed up for this week's post, let me pause to tell you a little about Mabel Madison's Stenzo Poplins. I used Flower Bunch- White, Flower Field- Pink and Flower Field-Red for the outfits that I created for my daughter and her stuffed bunny. Mabel Madison's Stenzo Poplins are 100% cotton and they wash up great! I always like to pre-wash my fabrics before sewing. I was concerned that the reds in the Flower Bunch- White and Flower Field-Red might bleed. However, that wasn't the case, here! The colors stayed crisp and colorful, even after washing and drying. Yay!
On my take of the girl's My Childhood Treasures Anke Dress (as a top), I chose to fully line the bodice and use a contrast color (Flower Field- Pink) for the insides of the bell sleeves. I also added a bit of trim on the front of the bodice, using some leftover trim from another past, project. Sew fun!
Lil' Miss has a closet full of dresses (literally!)! Plus, with the warmer weather on the horizon (i.e. running and playing outside), I thought that it would be fun to mix things up a bit and sew up a top and short outfit for today's post. For the shorts, I turned to one of my personal favorite PDF sewing pattern designers, Made for Mermaids, Olivia Bloomers. These sweet bottoms feature a contrast band and modest knee-length Pantaloon length. I added a small bow at the waistband for another little detail.
I had so much fun using Mabel Madison's Stenzo Poplins to sew up some fun patterns from some of my personal favorite designers, My Childhood Treasures and Made for Mermaids! Now... since it IS Friday, after all... and that big, beautiful weekend is ahead....Go forth and #sewallthepoplins, #sewmabelmadison!! TGIF!
I <3 Mabel Madison!!
That is so much fun! Which fits in perfectly with Fun Friday! Thanks so much, Heather - we hope you had a wonderful time sewing all these lovely things for your daughter and her dolly in our Stenzo poplins. They're wonderful fabrics that make wonderful things!
