IMG_1020This is one of several samples I’ve made this month for Lecien Fabrics using the Radiant Girl line of 100% high quality cotton fabric made in Japan.

IMG_1014For this look, I used the new pattern Phoebe by Colette. I selected a bunny print on black and a coordinating plaid for the lining. I made a size 6 which was perfect for my teen granddaughter. She really likes the dress and I will give it to her when it returns from the Spring Quilt Market.

IMG_1018Lecien fabrics will have a booth and feature my samples along with other Radiant Girl items. I am honored to be chosen to sew samples for them. Last year I made 7 shirts for the Japanese executives that attended the International Quilt Market in Texas.  You can visit my post about the shirts here.IMG_1767The new Phoebe was an easy dress to make. The instructions we clear and straightforward. There is even a sew-along for the Phoebe if you need explicit directions. Colette does an excellent job explaining how to fit and sew both versions of the dress.IMG_1053I opted for version 1 with the button up front. I did not make buttonholes, but sewed eight large red buttons, instead of 10, to the front. IMG_1045While Colette has you line the bodice, the skirt is not lined. I chose to line the skirt since I was using quilting cotton and I wanted it to have good body and a finished look. I actually attached the lining right sides together along the hem line and then stitched the two layers to the bodice.IMG_1031My other samples from the Radiant Girl line are a skirt using Lekala Pattern 4381Lekala skirt and running shorts and top using McCall 6848IMG_1062

Happy Sewing!
