Sweetheart Dress by VeryShannon using Calliope by Hawthorne Threads

Have you guys heard the news about the new fabric lines from Hawthorne Threads? I'm beyond thrilled to have been asked to join in on the launch blog tour for one of their new lines - Calliope! Isn't it gorgeous! 

We couldn't resist making a Sweetheart Dress when we saw the prints in Calliope! Hearts + feathers = yes please! I was more than happy to sew up our pattern with the print Feathered Hearts in Bluebell (shown on the skirt) along with the equally adorable print "Jubilee in White" for the bodice. And well you can't see it here we used "Poetic Plumes in White" for the bodice lining and it's gosh darn pretty too!

My little girl is wearing a size 3T bodice with a size 4 skirt. Only modification I made to our Sweetheart Dress Pattern was to use the full width of the yardage for the skirt for extra twirl factor! She loooooves that! She's really into ballet and dance and I think this is her favorite dress we've made her yet! She wouldn't take it off. You can read more about the Sweetheart Dress Pattern and purchase it from our shop HERE.

My girls absolutely loved the colors and patterns in this line and so did I! I think the colors would work well for any season and match along seamlessly with other tones and neutrals. I can see these being used many times in our home for both clothing, accessories and in decor. The Calliope Panelscould easily be worked into pillows, wall hangings and more! You can really let your imagination go wild with Calliope! It works for so many things!
