I think by now everyone has probably heard of Stitch Fix, the online subscription and personal shopping service. I love stitch fix and honestly it is normally the only clothes shopping I do for myself. I am all about the convenience, and I love the surprise of what is going to be in my "fix" each month.
If I could think of something I love more than buying clothes, only one thing comes to mind--FABRIC!!! I can't lie, I am obsessed with fabric, like I probably could use an intervention for my buying fabric ways--hehe! Instead of an intervention I think I just need a FABRIC FIX! That's right, now the idea of Stitch Fix is being brought to the fabric world.
"Fabric Fix delivers fabric and sewing supplies right to your doorstep! Monthly subscribers will receive a surprise package filled with high quality cotton fabric from the industry's most popular designers, coordinating trim, notions and more!" This excerpt from their page sums up just what Fabric Fix is all about--bringing you gorgeous fabric!
I was so excited to get my first Fabric Fix! When it arrived it was packaged so nicely and full of fun! The fabric was from the new line Lulabelle by Riley Blake that I actually have been eyeing, and there were some extras included too.
My packaged contained 1 yard of Lulabelle Main in Navy, 1 yard of Lulabelle Main in Mint, 1 yard of Lulabelle Petal in Pink, and 1/2 a yard of a solid green coordinate. I also received some Aurifil thread, the Willow's Wrap Jacket paper pattern by Create Kids Couture, a Dritz Ezy-Pull Bodkin for inserting elastic (not pictured because I immediately took it out of the package to use--hehe), and a small flashlight shaped like scissors! How cute are those scissors; Brady convinced me he really needed them for school ;) It was such a special touch to a stash of awesomeness!
I couldn't wait to cut into these fabrics! My first project had to be with Main in Navy--love those colors. I made the Violette Field ThreadsLola dress and accented with Petals in Pink and the solid green. We headed out to a nearby Arboretum to find some flowers for our photos to compliment the lovely fabric. It actually feels like spring here in Texas so this dress is perfect!
Next I decided to make Brenna a top with Mainin Mint, Petals in Pink, and the green coordinate. I chose the Ayda pattern by Simple Life Pattern Company. She loves this top because the mint fabric was her favorite.
Seriously she loves it! She was all smiles during this photoshoot!
