Wearing Grace

These are my muses, Grace Evelyn and Emma Grace. The girls inspired Grace, my most recent line of fabrics, so I thought it only fitting to make them each a garment using fabrics from the collection.

For both looks I selected fabrics from the Caribbean color group. I paired the hearts with a small tossed floral for Grace’s dress. For Emma’s blouse, I used the larger floral for the yoke and the butterfly motif for the main part of the top.

Both styles are the Ice Cream Dress pattern, designed by Liesl Gibson of oliver + s. The instructions were easy to follow, clever really, and we were all pleased with the results!
