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.

Sweet Lilly Pintuck Dress & Tunic by Bella Sunshine Patterns

DSCN0714Melissa Prendergast has done it again!  Another beautiful dress & tunic pattern.  Bella Sunshine Patterns has released their Sweet Lilly Pintuck Dress & Tunic.  This pattern is a vintage style dress or tunic.

DSCN0704What makes is special are all the details!  Pintucks on the semi-fitted bodice, fabric ruffling on the center panel of the bodice and sleeves, buttons down the bodice front, ruffles on the bottom.  It all makes the dress girly without going over the top!  The neckline is understitched so there isn’t any extra stitching visable to take away from all the details. The bodice is lined so no itchy edges against the body!  The bodice back is button up (more details) but the dress is easy to get off and on because of the continous skirt placket.  DSCN0757

It looks hard, but the instructions are very detailed and easy to follow.  Take your time and go step by step and the results are amazing!  Make sure to measure your child carefully. The trickiest part is once the pintucks are in you need to make sure the front bodice is the same size as the lining.  Mark your pintucks carefully and make sure each one is folded on the line and stitched on the line.  These are all included in the instructions!

This dress is truly versatile. There are two skirt lengths in this pattern-make a dress or tunic for pants or leggings or even use as a short dress.  Just a simple change in the fabrics turns it into a totally different look!  Dressy enough for a wedding or church, but just as at home in school or for play. We already have fabrics picked for our next one!DSCN0720

And Melissa is so generous that  not only is the pattern being released for $5.97, the entire Bella Sunshine Designs website is on sale for 40% off.  Sale ends 9/10/15DSCN0770

Genevieve’s Summer Scoop Tank Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns

DSCN9302Genevieve’s Summer Scoop Tank Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns an adorable top for girls in sizes 2t-12 yrs.  It has a high neckline and wide shoulders making it unique and can be worn into the fall!  If you’re afraid of knits, this is the top for you!  This was such a fast sew and so easy to put together.  The instructions are very well written and each step is fully explained. It is very versatile with two basic options.


Option 1 is all knit. I used a printed knit, but how pretty would it be with a solid knit with and embroidered front.


Option 2 has an overlay on the bottom that can be chiffon, lace or a woven. I used a white knit with a sparkly organza overlay.

The unique hem also lends itself to embellishment with lace, bias binding ribbon trim or since knits do not fray, you don’t even need a finished hem. This pattern will become a staple in your little (or big) girl’s wardrobe!DSCN9326

And there is a Sew Along in their facebook group starting tonight!  Go the the group for more information.
