And I’d say that even if they weren’t a sponsor! Art Gallery has an amazing feel and drape and it’s really unlike any other brand I know. ┬áLast year they added knits to their lineup of products and I’ve had several occasions to sew with them. . .so dreamy! Happy Home  by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery FabricsThis time I chose to show off one of their newest lines, Happy Home, by Sew Caroline. I love the bright colors and youthful (but not juvenile!) prints. There are 20 woven choices, four cotton/spandex prints, and one yummy voile!

Charly is a fun tunic that uses a mix of knits and wovens. She showcases a hi-low hem and a simple bodice that can feature your favorite bits of fabric and trim.

They always say “Home is where the heart is,” and now that Izzy & Ivy is my new home, I’m making sure that I put all of my heart into what I create. And anything that makes my sweet girl smile is well worth the time.

    So cute! Love the collection of prints you used. The yellow flower bud print is so pretty too. Sophisticated fun, I think!

    What pattern did you use for the darling ruffled capri pants with the Charly tunic top?

    1. Jessica says:

      MaryAnne, these were heavily altered, but the base pattern is the short pants pattern from this book: http://www.tuttlepublishing.com/origami-crafts/sew-sweet-handmade-clothes-for-girls-paperback-with-flaps. I’m thinking about doing a tutorial someday about how to do this with our Sweet Polly’s Playclothes capris (paper booklet). It’s actually an even easier alteration if you use those as your base.
