Edgy tee and bottoms 106 + 108

The trendy summer pairing for an edgy tee and shorts (or pants) I've been using some basic patterns to make these mods for awhile and I decided it was about time to make actual patterns so I could consistently make them for E and T. Instead of measuring, cutting, sometimes getting it wrong. It'll be [...]

Harem coverall : 97

I love this harem coverall style so much but the reason I've hesitated to make the pattern is because it can be a tricky balance. You need to be able to pull it up through the neck but you also need the neck to keep it's shape. That's why you need to be careful about which fabric [...]

Hooded vest for fall! Pattern 95

Can you tell how jazzed she is with her new vest??  :)  I love it too. It's one of my all-time favorites in fact!  I made it in a few different types of fabric.  A sweatshirt knit, a medium weight jersey and an interlock.  It worked well in all three but I think I like the [...]

Grandpa Cardigan and Streamline Pants

I've been wanting to do a cardigan for awhile and I love how it turned out!  This sweater is called the Grandpa Cardigan and is paired with a new pants pattern called the Streamline Pants. The collar can be folded down for less warmth or buttoned up around the neck for more warmth. To sew the [...]

Kimono sleeve romper, perfect for solid fabrics!

This unisex kimono sleeve romper has a lot of different ways to finish it.  If you're sewing for an older child you can use a good, stretchy fabric and skip the snaps, just pull it up through the neck.  If you don't like the pockets, leave them off!!  I love them personally :) The fit [...]

Fringe romper : 90

  :Fringe romper pattern: I've been loving the fringe detail on clothes for so long I can't believe I haven't done it until now!!  This is a really easy detail to add to ANY pattern.  Top, pants, shorts, one-piece etc.. I feel like this one-piece pattern is the perfect fit though, the hems are rolled and the binding [...]
