Little Birdy Outfit by Laela Jeyne Patterns

DSCN5297Just finished testing this cute pattern from Laela Jeyne Patterns!  Actually this outfit is two patterns-the Little Birdy Dress Pattern and the Little Birdy Flair Pants!

The Little Birdy Dress Pattern is a perfectly vintage blouse and dress pattern!  It features a uniquely shaped bodice with two styles of collars and a flared circle skirt for both the blouse and dress.  There are both short and long sleeve options that have a sweet gather at the hem. 


The Little Birdy Flare Pants PDF Pattern is the perfect pairing to the Little Birdy Blouse pattern! It features an elastic waist, flared bottoms, and a sweet little pintuck down the leg that gives it that vintage feel! This pattern is perfect for denim, corduroy, and any vintage fabric you may have.


I made Cailey’s out of corduroy!  She picked this pretty teal and also her favorite-elephants! Doesn’t she just look so adorable in her 70’s style outfit!


Also available as a Pattern Collection

The best part of this pattern is that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Angel Unaware in Fort Worth Texas for the first year after its release.  Angel Unaware is the 3rd pediatric hospice program in the United States serving patients and their families with end of life care.  This pattern was a collaboration with Dorie Kirk, an online boutique owner and fellow sewing fanatic, who has also lost a little bird.  She, along with the founders of Angel Unaware, want to bring awareness of the care that is available to those who may need it.


Betty’s Sock Hop Poodle Skirt by Snuggle My Baby Patterns

DSCN5181Just released!  Betty’s Sock Hop Poodle Skirt from Snuggle My Baby Patterns.  This versatile circle skirt features a flat waistband, side zipper, and free motion applique.

Of course we just HAD to make the traditional Poodle skirt!  The bottom of the skirt is trimmed with bias binding which also hems the skirt. The sewing level for this skirt is advanced beginner to expert and is available in sizes 2T-16. As usual for Snuggle My Baby Patterns, the tutorial is very detailed with many picture to guide you along including free motion embroidery of a cute French Poodle.  Even if DSCN5257you’ve never tried free motion embroidery before, the tutorial will guide you step by step through each part and soon you have a great free motion French Poodle!

Our second skirt was made using part of a design from Fluffy Rainbow Designs.  We made a Halloween skirt with a black cat chasing some scary spiders.  This skirt also came in handy for Orange day at Preschool!

This pattern is great for all seasons!  Change fabrics and you have a canvas to embroider, applique,or paint any design you want!
And for a 3 year old the best part is how the skirt twirls!
DSCN5235DSCN5166   DSCN5248I can see that this skirt is going to be a staple in our wardrobe.  She wants one with a turkey on it.  Grandma better get busy!

 This pattern is introductory priced so grab it while you can!
