Hello and welcome! I’m delighted to share some Indigo and Aster fabric goodness with you today.
This photo shoot was inspired by the floral crowns on the border print fabric of the Indigo and Aster fabrics. Each animal is wearing a floral crown in that border print fabric!
I’ll start with my older daughter, Annie, and then go on to Baby’s two outfits.
For the skirt, we used the border print panel. Each of the animals has a darling floral crown! Since we have dairy goats, we just had to include one of the yearlings in our photoshoot. The pattern we used is the Lottie Skirt by Violette Field Threads. We just left off the suspenders this time around.
We added a piece of lace trim at the bottom of the waistband panel. Annie liked this touch. Girly, but not too babyish she said. Next came an Aster Cardigan to pair with the skirt. This fabric is the bright, cheerful, colorful, floral knit print from the Indigo and Aster line. Underneath the cardigan, Annie is wearing a brand new Camden Raglan I sewed just for the occasion. It’s a great layering piece.
Somehow, Baby ended up with 4 pieces of clothing out of the deal! I already shared a little about the green Rosemary pinafore (pattern by Violette Field Threads) in this post. I used the lush bouquet green fabric for the main part of the pinafore. It is lined with this tiny, floral print called Bonheur Fresh, and also the ties are the same print.
And you can see Baby is wearing a bonnet. As with all the bonnets I make (and sell!) this one is reversible. On the floral side is one of my favorite prints from the Indigo and Aster line. It’s called Foliage Escape Lapis.
The other side of the bonnet is blue velvet. I also used some blue velvet ribbon for the ties.
As you can see, I loved this foliage escape lapis print so much, I used the knit version of it to make Baby another Eeny Meny Miny Moe dress. Once again, I modified it using my tutorial. I also added lace to the front bodice and above the ruffle I added to the end of the sleeves using this tutorial.
That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting and head over to Bari J.’s Curated Maximalist blog to see what others are making with Indigo and Aster fabric this week!
