When I designed the Wildflower Surprise fabric for Project Nature Adventure, I wanted it to be a versatile fabric. The first dress that I sewed was in a classic, vintage style (see it HERE) and I loved it! The floral looked so crisp and clean in that dress. Yet, I also thought it would be perfect for something in the trendy boho style.
I have used the Lynx pattern by Sofiona Designs several times (HERE and HERE) and, although it already has several great options, I am starting to use it for pattern hacking (HERE). This hack was fairly simple. I wanted the shirt to have a loose, flowy fit rather than a slim fit. It just seems more “boho” to me and the cotton poplin is a great fabric for light and airy styles. I just extended the bottom center pieces a few inches when I cut on the fold and used a gathering stitch to make it fit the bodices. I also cut the bottom in a little bit of a high-low hemline. Finally, I added bell sleeves, but my daughter hated them, so we compromised when I cut them in half. I guess it is more of a ruffle now.
We had ourselves a little photo shoot, of course. (344 pictures!) For this adventure, we took a walk around our little farmette. We found a few wildflowers that are still hanging around since the township mowed along the road, so my daughter picked a tiny bouquet. A few barn kittens followed us and kept sneaking into my pictures as they hunted for bugs. When we went to the far pasture a doe crossed the road near us twice! Finally, we visited the horses… I don’t think I have introduced the newest horse but her name is Sweet Serenity (Sweetie for short).
