Greenstyle Focus on Fall Blog Tour

8:42:00 AM,48 Comments

It's that time of year.  The kids are back to school, the leaves are changing, Halloween is fast approaching.  We are frequenting cider mills and pumpkin patches.  Fall is my second most favorite season!  I love all the colors and the cooler weather.  And with that cooler weather comes fall clothes, which may really be the best part!  Sweaters, scarves, boots, ruffle pants, tights....I could go on forever!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to be a part of the Greenstyle Focus on Fall Blog Tour, being that I LOVE fall and I LOVE Greenstyle Creations just as much.  Riley Blake graciously provided all the fabrics for the bloggers in the tour!  How awesome is that?!?!?!  I will say, I may have done a little happy dance when I found that out ;)  And thanks to Whimsical Fabric, there are some terrific prizes at the end of this post!

The hardest part for me was choosing patterns.  I really wanted to sew something I had not sewn before!  I decided on the bella bubble sleeve teewillow ruffle pants, and the laurelette dress.  Yes yes, I know.  That's a lot of patterns.  But I knew It would be worth it in the end!



fabrics: navy stripe  navy dot

Seriously, how cute is that?!?!?  I have had the bella bubble sleeve tee for a while.  I actually have had one cut for about a year, but I've never sewn it.  I don't know what I was waiting for, because this pattern is great!  The instructions are great, it is easy to sew, and it is super quick!  The fit is wonderful too!



I did change up the sleeves a little bit since I didn't have any elastic thread on hand.  I gathered the outer bubble without using elastic, and it worked out beautifully!  



I went with a striped contrast on the inner bubble of the sleeve (take my word for it since I don't have a photo of this) and on the collar, and I love how it turned out.  



I love the fit!  I made a 12month with a 2 length for my peanut.  It is perfect and should last all winter and spring!!  




Should we talk about the pants???  I mean, seriously...these are to.die.for!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the triple ruffle.  Not a fan of so many ruffles?  This would be super easy to alter.  To leave off however many you don't want!  Or many leave off the small top ruffle and add another long ruffle!  Lots of options.




I love the movement these pants have.  Every time she walks, jumps, twirls, it is just so fun to watch!  These went together really easy!  Word to the wise, use the elastic thread for these!  I once again didn't ave any so I gathered by hand.  It took longer, but the finished product looks great!




I was nervous about these since the website says 2yrs-12yrs, but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the pdf and saw it goes all the way down to 12months!  Perfect!!!  




I sewed up the 12month width with the 2yr length, and it is a great fit.  I love the roominess of the pants.  Perfect for my active little lady!

Ready for the last pattern??  I know, you are all waiting on the edges of your seats, aren't you?!?!?



OMG!  This is my FAVORITE EVER!!!  The laurelette dress is amazing.  So easy to sew, so quick, so beautiful!  It is one of my favorite dresses ever!  And so perfect for fall.  



I decided to sew the pleated front, non-pleated back option.  I think I will sew my next with a non-pleated front too!  How cute would it be with a gathered skirt too????



The cowl neck is just lovely!  Not too roomy, but still can keep those little necks warm as the weather gets cooler!



The little lady was able to easily run, jump, hop, and play in her super comfy dress!  The fit was wonderful!  This is the straight 12months and I love how it turned out!  I was worried it may be too short, but it is the perfect length and should last her a long time!  There is even a tunic length in the pattern!!!




I think little ladies instinctively know how to pose...lol  Little lady models are just the best!  This pattern is perfect and I can't wait to make many many more!
