Halloween is only a few weeks away.  Make a Halloween Apron using fabrics from Whimsical Fabric online store.  Order today for this fabric bundle deal of Happy Haunting fabrics by Riley Blake.

To show off the Wacky Wednesday fabric bundle, I stitched up this reversible apron using the Happy Haunting fabric collection.  The collection includes novelty prints in the traditional Halloween colors of orange and black.  The reversible apron features the orange haunted houses, owls, witches, and moons print on one side, and the reverse side is a mix of stripes on the bodice and hexie print on the bottom.

This reversible apron pattern is one of my favorites – my serious favorite considering it is a frequently featured pattern on my blog – HERE, HERE, and HERE!  It’s the Jezebelle Reversible Apron PDF Pattern by Handmaiden’s Cottage.  It is a flirty full circle skirt on an hourglass shaped bodice.  For me, the apron is a canvas to show off lovely & fun fabrics.

Little Gypsy Queen Dress for Spring

This dress is ready for Spring Twirling!

I made this dress with a full circle patchwork skirt, gathered neckline, and back bow from the PDF Pattern designed by Handmaiden’s Cottage.  It’s the Little Gypsy Queen pattern.

The fabric is the Dreamin’ Vintage collection by Art Gallery from Whimsical Fabric online shop.  It was their Wacky Wednesday deal in March… Join the group HERE to get the deals and join the challenges.

The fabric is SO pretty!  I love the blues, yellows, and purples.  Making the dress, I was continually reminded of the beds sheets at my Granny’s house.  Then it made sense.  The fabric collection is a retro print inspired by those bed sheets that I remember.

The dress pattern features a patchwork skirt that makes a full circle skirt, and that means plenty of twirly fun for girlie.  The waist is wrapped in a band that ties at the back in a sweet bow.  The bodice and gathered neck is made in the prettiest blue fabric of the collection.  The bodice is fully lined in a cotton white fabric and finished at the arms and the waist.   The dress fits comfy with the easy elastic around the top and the adjustable waist.  The bottom of the dress is finished with a narrow hem below the knees.

Besides making this dress for Whimsical Fabrics Wacky Wednesday challenge, this dress was made as my first ever garment made just for sale.  I joined the Handmaiden’s Cottage Pattern Showcase Sale hosted by Landocolors on their Facebook Page HERE.  The showcase features pattern designs from Handmaiden’s Cottage patterns.  The garments for sale on the Facebook Page range from Women’s Skirts & Aprons to Doll Dresses, and of course includes little girls and big girls Dresses, Tops and Pants.  So many beautiful clothes!  in all the Handmaiden’s Cottage Patterns.

This was my first opportunity to try out selling online, and I am so thankful for the opportunity.   But alas, my dress did not sell.  To be honest, I am disappointed, but not surprised.  However, I feel challenged now, and think I will be looking further into the online market for handmade items.  I want to try it out more.

Here is one last look at my Little Gypsy Queen Dress for Spring…
