I kicked off the Small World Fabrics blog tour yesterday with Oh My Darlin’ (Clementine wearing clementines = dream come true). Today, let’s check out what my friends Tara of Girl Like the Sea and Kristin of Skirt As Top are up to! First, the most adorable little pair of balloon trousers from Tara:

After I finished this dress yesterday I surveyed my handiwork and thought, I think I’ve finally achieved what I set out to do here. I can quit now, right? My work here is done. It’s my own little clementine fabric design in my own (spectacularly popular, still have to pinch myself sometimes) Geranium Dress pattern, on my own little Clementine herself. And now it’s on my own little blog. Done and done. Time for my retirement partay!?! Yeah…kidding. I love it too much.

Array

As you can see the corduroy is incredibly sweet and lightweight enough for a dress. She’s already decided it will be her birthday dress in July, so I suggested that we have a clementine-themed birthday party and to my utter delight she was on board. Her birthday is still four months out, however, so let’s be realistic: the chances of her changing her mind and requesting a Rainbow Dash or Elsa (GAH, kill me now) themed party are pretty high. But one can hope, right?

Array

The dress is a mashup of the Geranium Sewing Pattern: View A with pom-pom trim added (see my tutorial on Adding Trim to Geranium for instructions) with a View B skirt so as to include the inseam pockets, but instead of pleating the top of the skirt it’s just gathered between the outer pleat marks. Easy peasey, Clementine squeezey. Or something like that. Also: she’s finally in a size 6 (waaaah!!), so I’m super glad we decided to make this pattern go up to a size 12. The girl is TALL like her momma. And weird.

My Small World fabrics are printed on 100% organic baby wale corduroy from Cloud9 Fabrics and is being sold in shops now! This post is part of the “It’s A Small World (blog tour), after all” Blog Tour. The redundancy of that sentence is amusing me. Stay tuned for more posts this week showing off these fun and springy fabrics!

In case you didn’t know, my most recent line of fabrics from Cloud9 Fabrics, Small World, is now in shops! To celebrate we’re having a fun and cheesy (yeah…sooorrrry about the post title. couldn’t be helped) blog tour to show off the fabrics this week!! There are so many awesome things you can do with this lightweight corduroy, the fun colors are perfect for spring, and the fact that it’s organic makes it wonderful for baby and kidswear.

Array

Of course I wanted to design a line that could work not only for both boys and girls, but also even for grownups. At least those who don’t mind a little bit of bright color. Like me!

Small World is printed on 100% organic baby wale corduroy from Cloud9 Fabrics and is in shops right now. My blog sponsors Fancy Tiger Crafts and Fabricworm have it in stock, and if you’re wondering if you can get it internationally, the answer of course is YES. You can find it in the UK over at Village Haberdashery as well as many others, and most of the online shops in the US that have it also ship internationally.
