Riley Blake Designs Back to School Fashion Tour with Tie Dye Diva Patterns

 We’re so happy to be today's stop on the Riley Blake Designs Back to School Fashion blog tour!

Miss Kennedy’s wearing the Tie Dye Diva Potato Chip Skirt pattern which is the perfect comfortable, wearable skirt for back to school. The Potato Chip Skirt features a flat front, elastic back, and inset pockets (gotta have the pockets!). It’s a great pick all school year long - pair it with sandals and a tee when it’s warm, and tights, a cardi and boots when it cools off.

Best of all? The Potato Chip Skirt pattern is reversible! We’ve featured two prints from the Wiltshire Daisy collection by Carina Gardner for Riley Blake Designs. Our side with pockets is looking tidy and elegant in the Main Blue print, and the reverse is so sweet in the adorable cheater print in the pink colorway.

The tee is your first sneak at our upcoming Garnet Tee and Dress pattern! Because it's still late summer, I've chosen the tee option and short sleeves, and added the optional collar to match the skirt. The pattern options include dress and top, short and long sleeves, and collar or no collar. You’re going to love it! We sewed this one up in the super soft Riley Blake Knit Basics in Gray, and added the collar made with scraps of our adorable Wiltshire Daisy cheater print. Such a pretty and unique way to make a matching tee for your handmade skirts or pants. Come join us in the Tie Dye Diva Patterns interactive sewing group on Facebook to be the first to know when this pattern is launched.

Topping off our complete look is a sweet little accessory pattern that debuts right here, right now! Presenting The Knot (or Not) Headband pattern!


The Knot (or Not) Headband pattern comes in sizes fitting newborns through adult and there are so many ways to wear it! Knot it, wear it plain, reverse it! All those photos above are a single headband sewn in about 20 minutes. The downloadable PDF pattern includes a printable pattern piece for the bow, all sizes proportioned for the wearer's head size, and beginner skill level instructions with full color photos and diagrammed stitching lines.
