Day 4 Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour & $50 Giveaway

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

And we’re on to day 4 of the Floral Radiograph Fabric blog tour.  Today we have the most amazing seamstress presenting what she made with the fabric I designed.  I am a total fangirl of Katy from No Big Dill.  When I put together this blog tour, I emailed Katy crossing my fingers that she might reply.  To have her as part of the tour today is somehow like a small dream come true!

First of all, let me give an example of why I’m so much in awe of Katy from No Big Dill.  There are 26 different substrates that you can have your design printed on at My Fabric Designs.  Katy had enough expert knowledge to choose silk crinkle linen.  I got to put my hands on this fabric before I sent it to Katy, and YOU. GUYS.  It is amazing!  Here’s a peek of what Katy made.

Day 3 Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour & $50 Giveaway

Floral Radiograph fabric designed by Skirt Fixation

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

Today’s stop on the Floral Radiograph Fabric blog tour is little old me.  Forgive me for sounding like a proud parent for a minute here, but I really love the black and white versions of the fabric I designed.  And I really love the colored versions too!

Floral Radiograph fabric designed by Skirt Fixation

It was excruciatingly painful to decide which color to choose for this blog tour.  Finally I settled on green simply because my daughter has requested more green in her closet.

I chose to have this design printed on voile fabric.  It’s light and flow and perfect for a summer outfit.  The green fabric for the skirt and contrast on the top is a lightweight corduroy, also great for summer.  This outfit will extend into fall too, as long as she doesn’t outgrow it!

So armed with my fabrics, I went looking through my patterns for the perfect one to showcase this fabric.  With a border print fabric, you can’t have a curved hemline.  It’s probably no great shock that I chose an Oliver+S pattern.  Or that I chose my favorite Oliver+S pattern, the 2+2 blouse and skirt!

Floral Radiograph fabric designed by Skirt Fixation

I absolutely love this pattern.  Every time I sew it, I enjoy every step.  It’s like piecing a jigsaw puzzle.  You just take it slow and feel pleased as every piece falls into place!

The 2+2 blouse has a mostly straight hemline, with the fun added visual interest at the neckline.  I am really pleased with how nice this outfit turned out!

Floral Radiograph fabric designed by Skirt Fixation

The only change I made to the 2+2 pattern was to make an invisible hem rather than stitch a straight line.  This is so there isn’t a a white line of horizontal stitching across the border print flowers at the bottom.

Using corduroy for the 2+2 skirt means you end up with softer pleats.  When you use quilting cotton (like I did here) the pleats end up really crisp.  But I think for this outfit, and the soft floral fabric design I was using, corduroy was the right choice.

I can just imagine this outfit in all 8 colors of the fabric I designed!  Too bad Annie doesn’t really need more clothes of this sort at the moment.  You can go to this page here to see all the fabric I designed.

Now I simply must share a few things about the photographs in this post.  As you can tell, they are a departure from our usual iPhone photography.

I had the opportunity and great pleasure to meet up with Carrie, of Beri Bee Designs.  She has a big, fancy camera, and a big heart too!

She suggested a place and a time, and made the magic happen!  I’m really, really in awe of her talent.  Thanks, Carrie!

Day 2 Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour & $50 Giveaway

Floral Radiograph Fabric designed by Skirt Fixation

Today’s guests on the Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour probably need no introduction.  Nevertheless, I want to say a few words.  When I found the Elizabeth and liZ, the two ladies who run Project Run & Play and Simple Simon & Company, I felt like I’d found my people.  Women who love home making and sewing and are dedicated to their families above all else?  Plus they host an annual charity event all about skirts!  Like I said, my people!

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

All the projects that Elizabeth and liZ have going on, designing their own fabric, designing patterns, quilt market sewing, quilting, and above all their dedication to their expanding families means these two ladies have a lot of balls to keep in the air!  But I still had the audacity to ask them to join the Floral Radiograph fabric blog tour.  And probably because they are too nice to say no, not because the fabric I designed is anything special, they accepted my invitation plea.  They have this preview photo for us today.

It’s a skirt!!!  Click on their photo to be taken to their post.  You won’t be sorry!  These dear ladies created something near and dear to my heart using my B&W Floral Radiograph Crosshatch fabric in organic cotton interlock knit.  In this sneak peek, and when you go read their post, you can see the other design I created.  It is the same daisy X-ray art, but in an offset, reflected pattern which I love so much!  This design also comes in the following 8 colors.

Day 1 Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour & $50 giveaway

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

Today I have a some very special things for you.  Do you remember the fabric I designed?  This week my fabric is going on tour to the blogs of some very special ladies.  You won’t want to miss a single day!  And at the end of this post there is a $50 fabric giveaway!

When I sewed the Eleena Dress with fabric I had designed, I knew the fabric had a lot of potential and I wanted to see what some really, really accomplished seamstresses would do with it.  Thus the Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour was born.

Floral Radiograph Fabric Blog Tour

So I sent fabric to four of my sewing idols.  These ladies all have so much talent with the sewing machine, and behind the camera that I am continually inspired and in awe.  Today, I have the absolute honor of introducing you to Olga who blogs at Coffee + Thread.  You’ve seen me mention her here before, in fact, she is the designer of the Eleena Dress.  Olga chose to use my large Black and White Floral Radiograph Fabric in organic cotton interlock knit fabric.  I petted this fabric a little before I sent it to her, and it is really, very, dreamily soft!  Olga sent me a preview photo of her creation, and I am in just as much of a hurry as you are to click on through and see what she made!  Click on the photo below to be transported to a beautiful place…
