Wild Bouquet Collection by Citrus & Mint for Riley Blake Designs

Y'all, it's here... it's finally boot season here in NC.  After months of 90+ degree weather, we are just starting to feel some cool weather.  I couldn't have timed this post any better as Fall literally arrived this past weekend.  While I love sewing for any season, Fall always brings an oxymoron of  rich, yet muted colors; colors of harvest and of course, boots!  Boots and dresses are my favorite combo for my two daughters.

I was thrilled when I was invited to showcase Wild Bouquet by Citrus & Mint for Riley Blake Designs.  The fabrics are so pretty and are filled with gorgeous Fall-inspired florals.  The color palette is merlot, navy, mustard and green.  There are also coordinates of pink, cream and pastel blue.

My eyes were drawn to the Wild Bouquet Vases (Mustard) and decided to pair it with Wild Bouquet Wildflowers (Green).  I stepped a bit outside my comfort zone for this pairing, but I am so glad I did.  I had a pattern in mind when I picked these and it turned out just like it did in my head!  (The sewing was faster in my head though...lol)

I knew the Wimberley Dress by Little Lizard King was the perfect pattern to showcase these beauties.  This is the third one I've sewn (a sure sign I love the pattern!) and I went with most of the bells and whistles the pattern offers.  I haven't even sewn the extra twirly version so I knew I had to try it out.  I loved the smaller scale of the wildflower print for this twirly skirt.  None of the details of the print are lost.  P.S. With 17 feet of ruffle to hem and gather, I really spent some time admiring the print!

The sash is optional, but I love the pop of color the mustard brings here.  

  I used some scraps for a coordinating headband.  This picture also shows the print of the Wild Bouquet Vases (mustard).

Of course, Miss 7 had to test the twirlability!! She twirled herself silly!  Luckily I had the hindsight to sew up some New Haven Shorts by Little Lizard King.  Not only are they practical, but the cuffed legs are cute to boot!!

Be sure to head to Riley Blake Designs to view the entire collection.  Come back and comment with what fabrics catch your eye.  Bonus points if you have a pattern in mind too for them.
