{Riley Blake Designs} Whimsical Romance by Keera Job


Ahhh, Fall is finally here!  (Well, in 2 days technically).  After months of mid-90s, we are looking forward to the cooler, crisp air that will hit sometime next month.  It's so close though and that means sewing for new weather.

Whimsical Romance by Keera Job for Riley Blake Designs is a gorgeous new collection that gives off all the Fall vibes, but the collection also has prints that will work for Spring as well.  This collection features both moody rich hues and soft romantic florals.  The inspiration behind the collection is the classic Midsummer Night's Dream.

The above swatches are the cotton woven prints in this collection.  I discovered a rayon option though and my girls are in love with rayon!  It comes in 3 colorways -- I chose Rayon Challis Whimsical Romance Freefly Pine.  The deep rich color of the pine along with the gold, berry and cream accents is the epitome of Fall fashion to me.

My oldest has been increasingly more difficult to sew for, especially woven fabrics.  She does like the feel of rayon so she was actually begging me to sew her something!  I chose Bristol by Little Lizard King and sewed up the top length.  I envisioned it paired with skinny jeans and tall brown boots and it turned out exactly how I pictured. 

My favorite detail is the tie on the sleeve cuff.  The front bodice also gently curves upward which creates a natural high low hem.  The drape on this rayon is amazing!  

My youngest daughter's a little easier to please.  (Although if it was up to her, all the rayon would have been for her!) I chose to sew Sage by Peony Patterns.  This is a raglan-style woven dress which looks best when sewn with drapey wovens.... ahem, rayon.

I sewed up the simple skirt version and I love how it's the perfect Fall dress.  And because it's sewn in rayon, she kept this dress on all the way to bedtime because it was that comfortable!!  

The Whimsical Romance collection is now available at your favorite quilt shop and it's one you surely don't want to miss!!
