I’m so excited to kick off the blog tour for April Rhodes’ new fabric collections: Heritage & Arizona After. Both collections include stunning prints in different fabrications, such as: rayon, knit, cotton and canvas. My favorite of the two is definitely Heritage, and this specific collection was created for garment sewing. The prints are so bold and yet neutral at the same time. For today’s post, I chose to work with a rayon from the Heritage collection called Treasured Kermes. It is simply STUNNING. This fabric is hands down one of my most favorite prints to date.
The Art Gallery rayon fabrics are so soft and drapey. The quality is there! It was great to work with, and the finished product is amazing. These fabrics are really great for any summer project because they are so light and airy to wear. It’s what dreams are made of.
Ever since laying eyes on Nicole’s Anza Jumpsuit, I knew I had to make one too. THEN I saw this fabric and the rest was history. I love this jumpsuit so so much. The Anza Jumpsuit by Itch to Stitch is a great addition to any wardrobe.
This pattern has some really cool features I want to share. First of all, I love that Kennis (designer of Itch to Stitch) has added different cup size options to her patterns. No bust adjustments needed. I also love that this pattern comes with a dress option.
I sewed up a size 2 with no alterations.
It took me a straight week to put this one together. There’s a lot of steps but the instructions are very clear and easy to understand. It fits so comfortably, and I’m really just so excited about it. I wear it as often as I can!
This is just Day 1 of the Arizona After + Heritage Tour. Follow along to see all of the other amazing bloggers and their creations. I also have a few more posts I will be sharing as well. Up next is: Cristy from Love You Sew.
Special thanks to April Rhodes and Kennis from Itch to Stitch for supplying me with the fabric and pattern for this post. I would also like to point out that this post contains an affiliate link.
