It's adorable. Even with you reluctant model. I love Patty's fabric too and am envious of your "special package". What a treat! She choose a great color combination for you. What fun. You have a pretty good gig.

I love these fabrics! They are great for fall on through summer!

Stacie said...

Happy late birthday! That box would of made my year:) I am having a hard time picking a favorite colorway, maybe stone or raspberry... I am such a pink girl, so I think I am drawn to the stone because its a little different from what I am used to.

Thanks for a chance to win!

I love them all but think stone is my favorite colorway. Raspberry is a close second though. Can't wait to see these in person!!!

Jackie said...

oh, it has to be the Raspberry. The dandelions are yummy.

Misty said...

I love the dress you made!!! The fabrics are gorgeous!!! I think the raspberry is my fav!

~April~ said...

Pick a favorite? Seriously?!?!

But really..I love the dandelions and the little flowers!!!

~cyndi said...

Super cute dress!!

I love the dandelions and blossoms!

Erin said...

I looove the Gothic Flower Pink. It's so pretty!

Missy Melissy said...

Wow you have a neat job. I have to go with the raspberry pallet and though I love all the fabrics, my favorites are the birds, the bees, and the daisies.

Beth said...

The turquoise pallet is by far my favorite. I LOVE the dandelions, and the hummingbirds, and you can NEVER go wrong with dots!

Renae said...

Love the dress!!!! My daughter and I love the raspberry palette. The others are beautiful too!

Rhonda said...

Oh your model is too funny! Reminds me of my lil' model. The chocolate bribes only went so far. I must say I'm jealous of your job...how fun & exciting!! The dress is just darling. I can't decide which I like best between the lime & stone pallette so I'll go with both.

MaddyMazeStudio said...

Her new line is fabulous! I would put the stone double panel floral with the dark and light stone for sleeves and ruffle. I would plave some of the green daisy as trim and ties with it as well. I really love your interpretation of the Frida pattern. So fresh and cute.

Little Munchkins said...

I love all the colourways but my favourites (yeah, I couldn't just pick one!) are turquiose and raspberry.

Nicole said...

Fun! I love everything about this new line.....and I am SO excited to get my hands on some! As for a favorite? That is hard....I think mustard. No, raspberry or mustard. :)

gina said...

Love your stuff and love the new line!! My favorite is the gold colorway. Love the hummingbirds, and who doesn't love the dots???

Hugs,
Gina

Ellen said...

My favorite is the raspberry because I love pink and green! I love, love, love the bordered fabric. Have so many fun ideas swirling around!

Philip, Melissa, & Summer said...

I love these fabrics, and seriousely can't wait to get my hands on some. I keep wishing I could get into the market to meet Patty. I love the humming bird fabrics, and the black, gray pallette.

I just love them all!!

Rebecca said...

Stopped by after reading about your creation on modkidboutique.blogspot.com - my favorites are the stone and raspberry and I love the daisies!

Just Me said...

I can't wait to start sewing with these fabrics - in particular the stone colorway! I have so many ideas that I am about to burst! :-)

Nicole said...

These new fabrics are so awesome! My favourite is the bees in the mustard colourway. So sweet!

Kathryn said...

I just found your link through Patty's blog and WOW...you've made something so adorable out of her fabric! I love it!!!! I can't tell you how inspired I am to create this for my own little girl!

Wow. What a great birthday surprise parcel to receive and you have done a wonderful job with the dress, even with a reluctant model!! Oh its too hard to choose a colorway they are all beautiful, but as we are heading into spring here down under I would have to choose the Raspberry Palette-so bright, cheerful and happy!

zauber-a said...

how do you pick one? i love the mustard, the raspberry, the turqouise, the stone....seriously cannot pick a favorite, and love how they all interchange. loving the daisies and the bees with the dots, just yummy fabrics all around!!!

Susana said...

Pick? Waddya mean, pick. I love them all. And how thy work with each other (the mustard and the stone, or the raspberry and the stone, or the turquoise). If pressed, I'll say the turquoise palette, especially the birds and the blossoms, but the stone bees are yummy too.
The dress is beautiful, btw.

Michaela said...

Ha, I love the uncooperative model... I have one of those at my house, too. ;) I love this collection, but I have a particular soft spot for the blossoms in the stone palette.

Gwyneth said...

i LOVE the dandelions! especially the mustardy one.

thebirdlady said...

My favorite is the turquoise colorway. Love it with the red/pink.

Raspberry and stone- I'm on the bandwagon too- they are stunning together.
Your litlle dress is such a beautiful sample!

AnnieOC said...

I love the stone pallete, mostly because it is different from what is out there. a nice change.

Christine said...

Patty Young's new fabrics are awesome! I think my favorite is the dandelion in raspberry. It is hard to pick one since I love them all.

jan said...

Thanks for the wonderful fabric giveaway.

Kim D. said...

Happy B-day.. How exciting to get the fabric in the mail. Adorable dress. Thanks for hosting the give-away. Love the turquoise or stone pallete.

Little Miss Shabby said...

How exciting to get to see these wonderful fabrics--I love the stone palette. Thanks so much for such a great giveaway!

Tonya said...

What a beautiful new line. I like the raspberry palate, but my 4 and 10 yr. old daughters were jumping (literally) for the turquoise! The four year old wants the dress you made for Patty. I guess I'll be purchasing the fabric and pattern.

Genesis Christen Long said...

I am a newbie in the sewing world and I have spent most of today jumping from blog to blog admiring all the beautiful fabrics to be had! What a beautiful dress! It makes me want to sew!!!

amelienomori said...

Cute dress!
My favourite colorways are the stone and raspberry ones. The others are great also though, everything is nice in this new collection!
As for prints, I'd say my favorites are the hummingbirds one, and the two softer flowery ones (Blossoms and Dandelion). I so wish to get some of those to use in my sewing projects. I like the mix of Daisies & dots on the Daisies print also, but I wouldn't know what to use it for...
Hope this helps! And I hope I'm not too late to enter the giveaway, 'cause I'd love to get some of Patty Young's fabrics, they are beautiful! Thank you for this.

nanann said...

Just found you through Patty's site, and it looks like you haven't picked a winner yet so I'll definitely join!

I LOVE the stone and raspberry lines. Complete and total love.

Now, off I go to explore your site some more! Thanks!

Liz said...

I can't decide between the raspberry and the stone - all them if I am really honest :) The dandelion and the double border daisy are my favourite prints.

The dress looks gorgeous! And even models need to have off days :)

Marlene S. said...

Quite enjoy the grey and slate combos... especially the bee print.
