I so love this purse, I cant wait for Around The Bobbin to release a matching wallet pattern, so I can make it too. I used vinyl and decor fabric, and used a decorative stitch on my purse too. This pattern can be done by a beginner sewist if you take time to go through every step slowly. This is only my 4 purse I have ever made and it is by far my favorite. It has 3 pockets and 1 zippered pocket. I also has a removable strap. This is a must for a night out or a quick run to the store.
I used knit on the blouse, i used corduroy which was upcycled for the jumper, the size 1 fit is equivalent to a 18m. My daughter will be wearing it for thanksgiving, its just to cute. I do love the style of this and the pleating. Grammies Dolls made another hit again.
Imogene Vest and Skirt is so cute. I am going to be searching for new fabric so I can make more. Grammies Dolls is the other pattern brand that fills my daughters closet. I absolutely love ruffles and gathered sleeves for my youngest. Grammies dolls are a must if you do too.
This is the Mom version you ladies have been waiting for. Halifax is the adult version to Hatteras for kids. I used fleece with minimal stretch so I sized up to a large. The black is sweatshirt fleece with no stretch. The pink in the cowl is interlock and ribbed knit for the waist band and wrists. I made mine with thumb holes, love it so much. I already have more in mind to make. There are 5 style for the adult pattern and 3 styles for the kids. This has not been released yet, but will be soon.
The Olivia has been released. There will be a long sleeve addition that should be released here soon, and a possible mommy and me patterns in the near future. In my black and white outfit I used Taffeta, I do recommend you size up on the width and the arms. This works great with knit and woven. My daughter has half of her wardrobe with Mummykins and me patterns as they are my go to so far.
This pattern is so easy that, I can throw one of these together in less than 30 minutes. There are 4 different sleeve options, but I favor the gathered sleeve. When I was sewing this up, I learnt of a new and easy way to gather the sleeves with my Serger; it takes 5-10 minutes out of the job. Personal hint: this pattern works great with interlock or knit. Now for a little background: Sew by Patterns Pieces is a new up-and-coming pattern designer for the everyday average mom. She has been designing patterns since 2000 for small businesses.
This is my first ever pattern I tested. Its by Julia Faye. I cant believe it been over 2 months since i started testing patterns for clothing designers. This pattern is so cute, when I first was picked for it I was alittle apprehensive about the ruffles on the bodice and bottoms but once you sew it, it all comes together perfectly. I used a ITY galaxy fabric paired with white swim fabric and used Foe on the arms and neck bands which made it so much easier to sew. Julia is supposed to be coming out with a mommy version and I hope to be able to test it too.
Okay i cant get enough of this fabric but I missed the pre-order so I will have to stalk the retail when it comes in. I just love how gurly this is and soft. This had very minimal shrinkage 1/4 inch at most, no fading and so soft. Aqua Splash has awesome fabric for girls, boys and has a great line of Adult fabric by Back Room. this is my second attempt at a rolled hem and it actually looks great though i went around the skirt twice. My faux gdiaper is a large and i used snaps instead of velcro which i like so much better. My little raglan fits her great with room to grow
