Living on the Gulf Coast of Florida I am always looking for ways to incorporate our beautiful white sands and emerald waters into my photography. Sometimes it is a bit of a challenge and other times it’s as though it’s a match made in heaven.
The Fiesta Fun collection is a vision on fun with its bright colors. It makes me think of the sun, water and vacation. And because there is a saying here, “We live where you vacation”, I couldn’t think of a better place then the beach for my Fiesta Fun makes!!
Most of the time I am indecisive when it comes to fabric and pattern planning but this time, I immediately knew I wanted to use Mexican Dress in Midnight for a maxi dress. I absolutely love how vibrant the blue is and such a contrast to our white beaches.
I made a modified Rayann’s Retro Dress from Simple Life Patterns. I really wanted to showcase this gorgeous collection and by making Rayann as a maxi I was able to do so. Also, there is something so sweet about a little girl in a maxi. Don’t you agree!?!
I wanted to add a pop of color to the dress and mix in some of the other amazing fabrics from this line so I added an extra accent strip, alternating the strips in Happy Streamers and Piñata Confetti.
I love how these cute fabric covered buttons on the sash brought everything together so perfectly.
Of course Ava’s new baby doll needed to have a matching dress as well. I didn’t want her blending in too much so I used the Piñata Confetti as the main fabric and Happy Streamers for the accent strips.
I am usually always a last minute kind of gal when it comes to sewing…
