It’s finally reveal time on this fun project I did in collaboration with Workroom Social Fabrics! If you missed it, check out my behind-the-scenes planning post I did for this project here. Be sure to watch my you tube video for this make (scroll down) for a special guest appearance!!
First, lets talk fabric. Because how amazing is this print designed by Kelli Ward of True Bias for Workroom Social!? This print is called Wild and it’s from the Bantam collection. (Sorry folks! Its now sold out in ALL COLORS!! .. but check the rest of the collection for some other great rayon prints.) This is an amazingly drapey rayon that is so soft and swingy and could not be MORE PERFECT for the Roksi Trio. I just love the way it swishes as I walk and flutters around my legs. I can tell it is going to keep me super cool in the summer. Plus I am just completely in love with this print. I wish I had a whole bolt of it!
This pattern is of course my Roksi Trio pattern! If you read my planning post, I debated between a couple different patterns for this fabric, but in the end the Roksi & this beautiful drapey rayon were just meant to be. I decided to do the all-in-one two tiered version of the Roksi, because I love the way the crop and dress layer look together. Looking back if I would have made them separately I could have had a crop top to wear also, but I wanted to show y’all another example of how versatile this pattern can be. You can find the tutorial for this construction method in the Roksi Trio sewalong.
As you can see above I decided to throw in some side seam pockets. Which always come in handy. I just kind of guessed at the placement and they are a little low but I can still get in and out of them so its nothing I plan on going back to change. Other than that and sewing the all-in-one version I didn’t make any changes to the pattern. If you look closely from the front-on view, you can see that I was lazy and didn’t let the bias hang out of the dress overnight as my own instructions suggest. This results in a bit of a sag at the side seams and a fishtail look, but it kinda goes with the wackiness of the print (or at least thats what I’m telling myself?)
And without further ado, I highly recommend checking out my vlog for this make.. and watch till the end for a special guest appearance!!! – above pic might give you a little hint 😉
