This week I’m wrapping up my Boro posts, which means it is shipping out to stores AND there will be another giveaway! Happy dance, right? I’ve loved twisting and turning the expectations of this masculine line from Parson Gray. It really is unlike anything else out there in the fabric world and I’m so happy to get to be a part of it!
The original idea for today’s project was for it to be my daughter’s 6th birthday present/photo shoot. It didn’t happen then, but we did eventually get around to it. I used my Izzy & Ivy Such a Sweet Pea skirt from the Blossom’s Garden Party Skirt booklet. This skirt is really a show-stopper! A double layered skirt with ruffles peeking out everywhere! We did have a little too much booty-shaking going on with that bustle in the back. Girlfriend thought she was channeling Charo or something. I digress.
The best part about this pattern? NO PIECES! Everything is cut using a rotary cutter, ruler, and self healing mat. If you’re a PDF person and abhor those “pesky” paper patterns, this booklet has eight skirt patterns and only two of them have printed pieces. There’s even a headband pattern!
I also love this top that I purchased from The Measure. It’s a quote from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and it says, “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” It describes my petite girl perfectly and my prayer is that her fierceness grows her into a bold, strong woman that isn’t afraid to live out her dreams.
I hope you enjoyed this project and stick around for my last Boro post and giveaway tomorrow! I’ll have a little break before my next round of One Fabric Nation posts, but I’ve had a sneak peek of my next line and I can’t wait to get started!
Until next time…happy sewing!
