You ever feel like you won the lottery? I feel that way about once a month. 🙂 This time it’s because I got to sew up some fun things for the Girl’s Bundle Up Tour. In case you missed it, there’s an awesome group of patterns over at Pattern Revolution right now for the BUNDLE UP sale. 11 adorable patterns waiting for you to pick at least 6 to bundle up and save some moolah on. What are you waiting for? Run ladies, run!!
Oh, right. You want to see my completely adorable take on them first. I understand. 🙂
I squealed when I saw Foo Foo Threads’ Adeline Cardigan, Top and Dress. It comes in sizes 3 months to 10 years. And it makes a ruffled cardigan, a dress or a top. Yes, all of the above! My inner girly girl was so giddy to
make this for myself uh, sew this for my girls. I jumped at the chance. Eee!And of course Tiny One needed fancy pants to go with it. (Some how I lost an entire box of 12 month clothes for her…or donated it, whoops). You should have seen her grin when she saw her new outfit. She pointed to it and then pointed to herself, and then kept smiling. And then she proceeded to try and put her new cardigan over her head by herself, or around her neck. It was seriously cute. I should take those pictures next time.I love this pattern. It has so many options! Next on my queue is a dress version for both my girls, I’m just trying to pick fabrics. And next time I think I’ll make buttonholes. I skipped buttons this time and went straight for snaps because I don’t want babykins to stop being my baby my machine doesn’t make buttonholes. I’m hoping to get a new machine in the next month or so that can do everything but a straight stitch. I LOVE the snaps. Even hubby had an easy time with them. Win!I wish you could see the sparkles on the white knit collar and ruffle. It’s sparkly! Be still me heart. 🙂
And did I mention the jacket is lined? Perfect for this chilly weather. By the way, her denim pants are Jocole’s girls’ wideleg pants (also comes in capris and shorts). The pants are made in a woven, but the waistband is a knit. Includes patch and inseam pocket options and has 16 sizes included: doll, and newborn-14 years. Also available to Bundle UP! 😉If you want to get that pretty crease down the front, like a nice pair of Chinos or khakis…fold the side seams together first. Then fold the middle front waistband into the center, and the back middle waistband inward so they are touching. Iron flat, and you’ll have the pretty seam down the front and back. This technique works on mens’ pants too. 😉 Taa-dah!
Don’t forget to see all the other pretty things these bloggers are sewing up! Click on the picture below and it will take you right to Pattern Revolution’s blog. They link to all the cute outfits and give snippets of our posts. And don’t forget to head over to their shop and check out the other 9 patterns I didn’t even mention. 🙂
***All opinions are my own. I was given these patterns to review, but received no other compensation…other than my little one being extremely delighted by her outfit. Thanks to the wonderful designers in the Bundle Up sale and for Pattern Revolution for letting me be a part of their tour. Good luck ladies! I wish you the best! 🙂 ***
Happy bundling everyone!
