Back to School with PA Country Crafts

 Today we have some more adorable Back to School looks by Lindsay of PACountryCrafts!

My nieces are getting ready for back to school so I wanted to sew something special for them with Boho Fabrics. We did a little photo shoot at the one room schoolhouse where their great-great-grandfather attended.

Back to School with Boho Fabrics

For my older niece I sewed a Lagoon dress with the short puff sleeves and high low fishtail skirt. I have never sewn with cupro fabric and didn't really know what it was so I added it to my cart on a whim! It did NOT disappoint! This fabric is silky smooth with a perfect drape for this dress! For an extra layering piece, I sewed a Blank Canvas Cardigan. I had to omit the hem band because I ran out of fabric (I have more projects to show later!) but it is so soft and cozy in this brushed sweater knit fabric.

My youngest niece got a Lavender dress with long sleeves. This Bachelor Button Woven Prada Twill fabric will be lovely for cooler fall days and the best part is that it never wrinkles! I sewed the lace to the bodice instead of creating an inset because it was too narrow but it gives the same effect. For the skirt, I lowered the lace inset for my personal preference.

I also sewed a pair of Elodie shorts underneath for a little extra coverage while roughhousing on the playground. The navy cotton spandex knit worked perfectly!
