Here are the details on Riley's dress. (By the way, I only just really thought about the fact that the fabric is Riley Blake and my Riley is wearing it. I'm, clearly, losing my mind.) Her main fabric is the Clothesline Orange. The collar, straps and belt are from the grape floral. Her little flower is the grape damask.
I call this pose "I'm a '50's housewife. Welcome to my party! Would you care for some deviled eggs or cream cheese and celery?"
And this is her "model pose." Pretty good. I'd hire her.
I recently discovered that Riley really likes two things, getting-dressed-wise: elastic and accessories. Therefore, I had to give her this belt. The dress can be worn on its own. However, I wanted to throw in a cute gathered belt for her. She loves pulling it off and on. I'm sure it will, somehow, accessorize some other random outfit soon. :)
Noelle's dress has a pieces bodice. Her main fabric is the green bikes, but it also has adorable wagons with little teddy bears! The coordinating fabrics, as you can see, are the same as the first dress.
The only vision I had for this dress, initially, was some kind of piecing. I was going to do it all the way down the sides of the dress, but then I thought it would be fun to have a whole pieced center panel.
My girlies liked dressing up. Riley actually requested that she keep hers on (not always the case after our "photoshoots").
I will happily post tutorials for both... Any takers??
