{PATTERN RELEASE} Peekaboopocket Mix&Match Outerwear


Yay, I've finally updated, added to, extended and improved one of my very first patterns.  The Peekaboopocket Vest pattern.


I have gained so many more skills since I first started designing patterns and the pabp vest has been weighing on my mind to be redone.  The main part I wasn't overly fond of, was the wide gap between the ends of the hood.


Now that I have been designing for over 1 year I can confidently say that my sizing has been perfected and my grading is SO MUCH BETTER.

This new vest/hoodie is a similar fit to the Street Smart Sweatshirt Collection with one major difference in being the SSSC is a RAGLAN style sweatshirt and the new pattern isn't.

Lets look at the options in this new pattern VS the old pattern


Wow, as you can see there are quite a lot of differences.  Have I convinced you yet that it's a great pattern?  Good for all seasons, and easily customized to your child and climate.

You can purchase it HERE and its on sale until tomorrow night.
Go on you know you want to.   

I'll leave you with some of my tester photos.



and if you do purchase and make a vest or hoodie, I'd LOVE to see a photo.  Join my group and share your creations using my patterns.

{PATTERN RELEASE} Skinny Legs 12m-14years


Yay, the SKINNY LEGS pattern is finally released.  You can purchase it here.

But first lets look at the details.

Sizes:
12m-14years (the 14 even fits me, score)

Fabrics:
Good quality cotton lycra, anything with a good stretch, I even made Portia a pair with stretch denim and the ruched sides.  I would however go up a size in the width if I were to do this again.  And one tester even made them in stretch lace and they look so cute.

Options:
4 lengths, 2 waistbands, 2 styles (ruched vs plain)

I want to thank my amazing testers, most made multiple versions/options/lengths and for that I am so grateful as this means the pattern has been extensively tested thus making it as perfect as it can be!!



 3/4 length

 Ankle length

 Ruched panel option

lace, knee and shorts length

get the pattern here on CRAFTSY and ETSY

{Blog Tour} Pimp that Pattern ~ Day 3


Welcome to day 3

First up we have Alyssa from Keep Calm and Carrion.  I have to say that Alyssa is one of my favourite testers, she always goes above and beyond what is called for in a tester, making multiple items and a new one if the pattern is adjusted (even if it is only a tiny bit)

Don't you just love her take on the romper?  I sure do.




The next blogger is Bethany from Sew-not-perfect
What a delightful little sister set this is.
