Lets get right down to business and talk about what I was up to last week.
I was so lucky to be picked as a tester by Tami from Love Notions Sewing Patterns . Needless to say it is always exciting to place your bid and wait to hear back from the awesome designers I test for, especially since the other contenders are simply super talented.
This was a super quick sew for me. The entire process of printing, taping the pattern and cutting down the pattern which is honestly my least favorite part was done in minutes. I had already decided I was going to up cycle one of my most favorite old tops that had seen better days and an old T-shirt from my husband's donation pile.... yes I am thrifty so I make do with what I have at hand. The front of this dress was done with some left over fabric from another project a while back.
I just love the end result, doesn't she look super adorable? She is learning that after I make a dress for her she needs to go outside for pictures... she loves the attention.
My favorite thing about this pattern is how when you go and print it Tami gives you the option of ONLY picking your size, yes you read right, you can pick the one size you want to cut and it is done. It is an awesome feature that I had not seen before, I only test for a few designers but I really had not heard of anything like this before. This is the second time I test for her and it is truly my favorite thing in the world.
The dress comes with lots of different options for sleeves and the neck line, you can also choose to have a ruffled hem. I picked vie B with the little bib on the front and added a little button just for fun and cap sleeves.
It is a great pattern for everyone who loves knits and you can come up with lots of different looks. I was gong to try my luck at making a top for my little one before I wrote my post today but between dentist appointments and other crazy summer things happenings it just did not get done. But please come back and visit soon I might find time next week to get it done and post pictures on here.
The pattern is out today so you can go and grab it with a special 15% discount, just use the promo code 'tuxedo' .
I am attaching some links to the other ladies who did an awesome job on their test, some are just so cute and I can't get enough of them. Great inspiration every where you look!!
