Conheci o blog da Rachel, Stitched Together, quando estava a organizar a série com a Marte e fiquei imediatamente fã das roupas que faz para os seus filhos. São simples, práticas mas divertidas.
Aqui fica o vestido que a Rachel fez para a sua filha adoptiva Tarikua.
Today I have a great friend visiting DoGuincho!
I didn't know Stitched Together before Mailbox Surprise but, as Marte told me to check out Rachel's blog, I got immediately hooked. I love her simple but special creations, her photos and they way she speaks about her life in Texas with her fun family.
Today Rachel is sharing with us a lovely dress she made for her daughter Tarikua.
I'm Rachel from Stitched Together. I'm so happy to be here today with my creation for the Mailbox Surprise Series. I feel like I won the fabric lottery having An from StraightGrain as my 'sender'. She sent me three yards of gorgeous and unique Belgian fabrics. I can't wait to make something in each of them!
I decided to start with the fabric with the turquoise dots, which I felt paired well with the Geranium dress pattern.
An sent me bias binding in one of my very favorite colors - mustard. I ironed it flat and then turned it into piping by inserting some cording and sewing it closed.
And there you have it - one geranium dress in Belgian fabric with mustard piping!
Thanks so much for having me, Marta and Marte. And thank you, An, for the gorgeous fabric. Anytime my Tarikua wears this dress, I will undoubtedly think of you!
