I’m back with my last post for April Rhodes Heritage + Arizona After Blog Tour! This post is all about Arizona After’s Ojo’s Flame print in Rayon. It’s a stunner! (And there’s a giveaway!).

The Arizona After fabric collection contains some really cool aztec prints that would work really well for several different kinds of projects that include cotton, canvas, knits and one rayon print. I fell in love the the Ojos Flame print in rayon. It has a really cool vibe and I lovvvee the burnt orange color.

This fabric is so soft and drapey. It was really great to work with, but has the basic characteristics of a rayon: the hardest part is getting the pattern cut out without letting your fabric shift too much. I like to turn the pattern piece over after cutting, unpin the front and move the pins to the back to help re-lay the fabric smoothly, then trimming off any fabric that might have not been cut out perfectly.

I instantly pictured the Highlands Wrap dress by Allie Olsen of Indiesew paired with this fabric. This is my second Highlands Wrap dress; you can read about my first one here where I talk about all the adjustments I made to make it a little more modest. It’s pretty rare for me to sew something up twice, so you know this pattern is a good one!!! I think this version will wear really nicely into the fall as well.

I originally made this dress to help showcase this gorgeous fabric in April Rhodes booth at Quilt Market this past Spring. April is one of my most favorite fabric designers and it was soooo cool to be able to work with her in this way. How gorgeous is her booth!?

Okay, now for the giveaway! Head on over to my Instagram account (look for this dress in the post) to read all the rules about how to enter April’s mini loop contest. Good luck!

Fabric was provided to me for this post, but all opinions are my own.
