When I saw the chance to sew up Riley Blake's newest collection, Little Brier Rose, I jumped at the chance! We just released two patterns, named Rose and Briar, and I knew one of them would be perfect!
Little Brier Rose, by Jill Howarth inspired by Sleeping Beauty, is full of charming prints like fairies, dragons, crowns, woodlands, and florals with a palette of parchment, midnight, pink, teal, and blue. And lets not forget the Antique Gold Sparkles throughout this collection!
As my daughter gets older, I am finding it harder to choose fabrics for her. I absolutely loved the main prints but worried she may feel like it was a little young for her. I ended up choosing the Little Brier Rose Floral in Pink Sparkle and Little Brier Rose Woodland in Blue.
I had a tough time deciding between the two patterns but in the end I chose to sew up Briar. Briar is a classic float style dress with a button back closure. My favorite detail of Briar is the cutout puffed sleeves with a button closure. It turned out just as sweet as I had hoped.
I only modified the pattern a teensy bit and added a skinny accent strip between the bodice and skirt. It was a great way to incorporate the Woodland in blue accent.
Two small bows at the end of her pigtails finished off this sweet look perfectly!
