Under the sun of Andalucia!
Ohlala! The period of scarcity of reading has begun, the blogosphere is almost deserted for nearly 15 days.
If you come by here, send me a quick Hello to make me feel less alone. ^^
Given the atmosphere of relaxation and warmth that prevails, I’ll take you on the trail of Andalucia, with Spanish accents.
What is Andalucia? Well, it’s a range of fabrics edited by Michael Miller, and compiled by Patty Young. I like the cheerful colors and the geometric patterns.
I fell for it yesterday when I went into my store, Thimble Pleasures- in Chapel Hill for those who live in North Carolina, like me.
No sooner said than done, I took my homemade sewing pattern of the Provencal Dress, and I adapted it in a version that reminds me of Spain. Ole!

I had fun adding a ric-rac ribbon across the bottom of the dress. It gives a small indent side that I like. The waist is emphasized by an anise velvet ribbon that I brought back from France.
Fancy that it’s pretty hard to find it here, and that this type of ribbon is known as “French velvet ribbon”. I wasn’t aware that this ribbon was particularly French until now.
Material: Andalucia fabric by Michael Miller, anis French velvet ribbon, red ric-rac ribbon, Kallou pattern for a 4-year old.
Of course, as soon as she came back, Aline jumped on it!
And I must admit that I love this little dress and its warm hues.
A small parade to show you the results on the “Beast”!
A dress like that, it makes you want to dance the flamenco!
I made a raid at Thimble Pleasures, and I have a lot of fabric to transform like that! Although, I do not know if I would be as fast with all the cuts of fabric.
I also think of using some of these fabrics for the Nounousses because some colors are almost out of stock.
