Bohemian Butterflies and Bobbles for Chloe and Project Run and Play Sew Along

Project Run and Play's Sew Along Contest challenges me to think a little differently and stretch my sewing designs in different directions.  This week's challenge was "Bohemian":  very different from my usual designs.  Of course, Chloe would be the perfect recipient and model for this style dress!  

I actually searched for and purchased a pattern because none in my gigantic stash of patterns would do for this theme!  (I am rolling my eyes at myself!)  This is 'Luna' from Violette Fields Threads.  While at the website I couldn't help myself and purchased several more patterns!  I needed them!  (I am a crazy woman!)

 Violette Fields Threads 'Luna':  size 6
Fabrics:  "Floral Border in Gray" from
 the "Meet Me in the Meadow" collection 
from Michael Miller Fabrics and 
Allison Glass' "Endpaper" for Andover Fabrics.
Trimmings:  JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store
Buttons and white cotton lace:  My Stash

Chloe as a regal Boho Butterfly Princess
 I purchased the fabrics for this dress on sale from Hawthorne Threads.  I really love shopping for fabric online there because they have an awesome matching system where you can find prints that match your chosen main fabric and know that they really match...even from different fabric lines!

 We went to The Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg 
for our photo shoot.  
What a beautiful place!

I am linking this post to Project Run & Play's Bohemian Theme sew along contest HERE.  Please check out the great outfits entered by the other 'sewists'!


  1. Those are some beautiful fabrics and she looks sweet and lovely.

  2. I love the colors and the trim you used! Ahhh! Pockets!!! I totally forgot to put them in my maxi dress like I wanted to!

  3. Your model and the dress are adorable.

  4. It's very cute! I can never buy just one pattern from Violette Field Threads. They are addicting!

  5. Oh, wow, those colors are so bright and fun! I love the trims you used, and her butterfly crown is perfect with the dress!

  6. The dress against the garden setting is perfect! The little crown sets off the whole dress, but my favorite feature is the pockets!
