I have a really fun post for you all today! I was invited to be part of Indiesew’s newest fabric collaboration with artist Dan Lehman and Spoonflower! Together they created Fool’s Paradise, a fabric collection featuring carnivorous plants that comes in two color ways and two types of fabric substrates: a flowy poly crepe and a more structured cotton poplin. You can find them all exclusively on Indiesew’s online shop.
Head on over to Spoonflower for an insider’s look into how this collaboration came to be, including a really fun video interview with Allie and Dan. You won’t want to miss it!
When Allie first showed me the two prints, I had a really hard time deciding which one to use! I loved them both! I decided to go with the lighter color way: Fool’s Paradise Light in Poly Crepe. I immediately pictured a flowy, boho style blouse and of course, my mind went straight to the Roscoe Blouse by True Bias. I’ve sewn this shirt up once before, also in Indie Sew fabric. I wear it all the time, and knew I needed another one in this fun, whimsy botanical print.
For my second Roscoe Blouse, I decided to size down one size, and shorten the bodice by about 2″. I also raised the neckline by 1 1/2″ for extra coverage. I love styling this top tucked into a pair of high waisted jeans, and boots. I’m wearing my FAVORITE madewell jeans in a size 25, the fit is so so good. For colder days, I plan to throw a camel colored cardigan over it.
This fabric is slightly sheer, I am wearing a white tank underneath my top. If you decide to make a dress with this, you might want to consider lining it.
I just really love the colors chosen for this print! The design of the carnivorous plants are so unique, and fun to look at. I can totally picture this blouse in Anthropologie. (Does anyone else try to imagine their future handmade garments in their favorite shops when project planning? If I can see them in certain shops, I feel like I’m on the right track. Pairing fabrics with patterns is an art all in it’s own!).
Go check out this unique and one of kind fabric line! The options for these fabrics are endless. I’m especially loving Allie’s idea of using it as a lining for a jacket! So fun! Special thanks to Allie, Dan Lehman and Indiesew for having me on this fun tour!
