April Rhodes Pattern Giveaway with the Cabbage Rose!

We have been HUGE fans of April Rhodes ever since her very first design hit our shelves! The Staple Dress has proven to completely and utterly live up to its namesake and become a staple in any wardrobe it finds a happy home in! Caroline has made a whole heap of these simple and flattering dresses (can you say, addicted?) and has even taught a class! All of her students all looked amazing in their new dresses! Such a flattering dress for any body shape and size!

April recently released her second pattern, The Date Night Dress + Simple Slip and my, oh my...this one is as pretty as ever. I just love those flirty sleeves, perfect for a fabulous night out or a special event. Caroline whipped up one for herself with some GORGEOUS Amy Butler Rayon! What's really awesome is this is truly two patterns in one! You may need to create a Simple Slip to go under your Date Night Dress if you use a lighter and more see-through fabric like Voile, but its also darling on its own as a swimsuit cover up, a nightie or a sundress for those extra hot days!
We got to meet up with April at this year's Fall Quilt Market in Houston and she was sweet enough to give us one of each of her patterns to GIVEAWAY to our Cabbage Rose Customers!! The Giveaway will be open through next Wednesday and we'll announce the winner here on the blog! There are lots of ways to win!! You can Follow us on Twitter or SIGN UP for our Newsletter, those count for 2 entries each! OR for one entry each, you can tweet about the Giveaway, Like us on Facebook or Leave us a Comment on this post with what fabrics you'd use to make these dresses!

For the staple I would use a knit (for the first time) and for the date night dress I got a silky fabric from Fabric Mart in anticipation of making that dress. I don't even know what it's called, but it's abstract and silky.

I would use any Tula Pink fabric!

I would try to find a nice floral knit fabric for both!

I honestly don't know what fabric I would choose to make either dress. I haven't sewn clothes for myself since high school home ec....... I know that I wouldn't necessarily use any of my quilting fabrics, but I'm sure I would find something fabulous.

I would make the date night dress out of a colorful silk or silk-like poly and the staple dress out of a Kaffe Fasset fabric....something wild.
