Hi all! I had a blast being a part of the Mood Sewing Network! If you ever get the opportunity to become a blogger for the Mood Sewing Network , I highly recommend that you go for it! It is a great way to connect to the sewing community, and learn more about various fabrics. This was a great experience! As I prepare to close this wonderful chapter of being a blogger for the Mood Sewing Network, I want to share my experience with another fabulous piece of fabric that was sponsored by Mood. If you are not familiar with Mood Fabrics click on the badge below and see all of the awesome fabrics that the online store has in stock.
Premium Crown Blue, Dusty Orange & Coral Dandelions Print
This light weight 100% cotton fabric has a subtle sheen and soft hand. It is a woven fabric ideal for making blouses, skirts, and dresses with a soft drape. I was drawn to the vibrant colors of this piece. As I mentioned before, I love fabrics that have both light and dark hues in them. The background of this fabric is navy blue, while the foreground consist of teal, orange, pink, and white colors. Unfortunately, this fabric is currently out of stock. However, it can be reordered and an email will be sent to you if you wish to be notified when it is available again. Here is the link to this fabulous fabric!
At first, I wanted to make a skirt with this pattern. But after careful thought, I decided to make a two piece matching set to get the most out of this piece. I was nervous because I only had 2 yards of fabric to work with and didn’t think I would be able to sew a two piece set with two yards. As you can imagine, I had to be very selective with my pattern of choice.
I selected the Butterick B4685 pattern for the top. I’ve used this pattern for the last Mood project, if you can recall. You can view that garment here. However, I made a few changes in order to make both a top and a skirt. Since I was short on fabric, I shorten my sleeve quite a bit.
The New Look 6346 Pattern was used for the skirt. This is a TNT pattern of mine that I have made four times. I love this pattern. I selected view C for this project, and shorten the skirt by two inches. Both of these projects are simple and easy to make, and I highly recommend them to beginners and sewists of all skill levels. I have full pattern reviews of these two patterns on my YouTube channel. Please go watch them and leave a comment and a like. Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you.
Great top and skirt set Tea. The top looks great with the shortened sleeves and the skirt gives you the option of wearing both pieces together for the look of a one piece dress. I have truly enjoyed your reviews of these lovely Mood fabrics. Thanks for sharing!
