Who doesn't love Amy's blog NanaCompany? And if a beautiful blog isn't enough to satisfy you, there is her book and now her fabric collection. Paperie is Amy's debut fabric collection for Art Gallery Fabrics.
Amy very kindly asked me if I would like to participate in her Paperie blog tour. Absolutely! I was very excited to receive some yardage of the pretty print Eponine in voile.
I couldn't wait to start playing with this fabric and thought I'd test my two new upcoming patterns in it.
This is the Eloise Top. Since I released my pattern for the Cuffed Pants I've had many enquiries about a pattern for the pictured accompanying top. With so many requests for it I pushed this pattern to the top of the "to be released" queue.
The paperie voile is a lovely weight to sew little tops with. Adelaide absolutely loves this fabric so was very excited to get some new clothes in it.
You can see how pretty this print is up close.
The other thing I love about Amy's fabric range is how easily it blends with so many unexpected colours.
I pulled lots of fabrics from my stash that worked with Eponine, but in the end went with this raspberry dot fabric that is leftover from my range production a few years back. This is the Sienna Gathered Skirt which you first saw here.
I've struggled to get this skirt off Adelaide in the last few days of the summer holidays. There's something about a full skirt that always appeals to little girls I've found.
Now the Paperie skirt and top are hanging on Adelaide's wardrobe door. They look so pretty together, I didn't want to put them away with her other clothes.
These two patterns will be released in the coming weeks. Please follow TownmousePatterns on Instagram or here on the blog for release details. In the meantime, order your Paperie fabric before this pretty range sells out.
