Once again Merav and Baby Hobbes of Baby Hobbes Design are back showing off this lovely Gabriella Fae in our newest fabric line Hotel Frederiksted due out in stores later any day now. We hope this post inspires you to include Sis Boom in your holiday sewing! Don’t forget to share with us on Facebook and Instagram. We always love seeing what you are creating.
I am more of a last minute kind of gal! Somehow I stay organized (love my “to-do” list) but I am known to procrastinate A LOT! Hmmmm…starting my kids Halloween costumes 48 hours before they needed to be worn, for example! But when I received my Hotel Fredriksted samples, I couldn’t resist jumping into “Holiday” Mode since this collection features gorgeous reds, greens, blue and white colorways that fit perfect with the Winter Holiday Spirit.
It’s tradition here for Hobbes grandparents to take her to see the Nutcracker Ballet, so I wanted to create a festive look that will mirror Hanukkah and Christmas enthusiasm, yet include the comfort and wear-abilty that is my signature style.
For the top, I chose Sophia in pink, a bit of white half inch crochet trim for the centerpiece and a lacy exposed zipper for the back.
I wanted a full skirt for Hobbes size three width-I cut each stripe from salvage to salvage and then curved the bodice to create a light bounce in the front.
See here for my previous tutorial on curving bodice.
Let me know what you think of Hobbes’s Hotel Fred Holiday dress and of you had a chance to try out curving your dress bodices too.
Till next time, Happy Sewing!
