Are you following along at Project Run & Play? Did you see that there’s a Fishsticks Designs giveaway that starts today? I’m so excited to be sponsoring this All-Star Season! It’s been so much fun already! This is Riley Blake Chevron Week at PR&P, and there are some seriously amazing designs already popping up in the sew-along. You can check them out right here: Chevron Week. The All-Star chevron projects will be posted tomorrow!
Katie’s not here this week to model this sweet little number for you, and she was sick most of the week last week, so my dress form will have to do. These fabrics are all stretch jersey knits from the Riley Blake Sweetest Thing collection that was released last fall. (A little secret? The knit chevrons are coming back . . . and they’re bringing along some new friends!)I’ve been working on a new collection of patterns, four patterns to start, designed specifically for stretch jersey knits. They’ll be featuring the HUGE collection of stretch jerseys that Riley Blake Designs is releasing next month! This little dress is one of the set. All of the patterns will be quick and simple to sew, and they all use various raw edge finishes to showcase that great jersey curl. They’re still about a month off, but I couldn’t resist showing you a little preview since I’ll be incorporating those great chevrons!
Since we’re already chatting about the new RBD knits, have you seen them yet? You can peek at all of them right here: Riley Blake Knits – Coming Soon! There are solids, dots, and CHEVRONS in over a dozen colors!
My favorite, though, is the stripes! Stripes in not just one, but two sizes! 18 in all! I love knit stripes!
Did I say this was a HUGE collection? I feel like I’m in knit heaven!
