I honestly am in love with this pattern. Though Stylo was my first time using it, I am anticipating making a couple more for the girls, and adding a style or two into the shop (deets coming later!). When I was approached with making a "fruit inspired spread", I knew that pink had to be included. I also knew that Madison would want her dress to be fluffy, pink and oh so girly. So I figured I could get away with a "pink picnic" dress, and Blake was the first pattern on my list. Farrah was super helpful when suggesting what fabrics I should used to get the "body" I was looking for, and she was spot on. Thank you! The pattern is aesthetically pleasing, and the instructions were awesome. I have a fear of zippers (silly I know, but I loathe them) but Farrah included a great link to another site that guided me through the whole process. Super kudos for that :) In all Blake is a great pattern, and I cannot wait to make more.
That necklace ya'll!?!? Doesn't it just scream "summer", "icecream" and "fun"? A fruit inspired outfit wouldn't be complete without a one of a kind, handmade necklace from the lovely Therese at Ena&Albert. When I was browsing her Etsy shop (if you haven't, you must check out all the handmade goodness and lovely colors of her beads) I had moused over the watermelon inspired necklace and knew it had to be the center piece for the dress. I think it amounted to everything I imagined, and then some!!! Thank you again so much Therese for contributing!
