Geo Raglan : 122

The geo raglan sweatshirt has a bit of edge to it, if you're looking for a unique outfit, pair this pattern with some track pants and add a little knee patch like I have on Theo above! There's no special skills to get the look, it's just sewn a little different than the classics. Here's [...]

The track pants pattern : 15

I am so happy to show the updated track pants.  I've been making this mod for my kids for awhile and finally got them published to include the cuffs and the changed pocket!! The waistband is more simple than you would expect!  It's like any elastic casing just has 3 rows instead of one! Here's [...]

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 [...]

I've created the spring romper in response to many requests! The summer romper is very popular and some people wanted it with the ability to add legs. So here is a similar pattern to the summer romper with leg options and a pocket detail! The pattern is appropriate for a beginner, you can preview some [...]

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 [...]

Pocket pants and slant hoodie

Sooner or later we will get hit with dropping temperatures and I want to be prepared!  I'm talking about Eleanor's wardrobe of course.  I made 2 new patterns that are perfect to keep her warm, the slanted seam hoodie (with a hi-lo hem) and the side pocket pants that can store all kinds of stuff!
