{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

Sewing photo a day challange (SPADC)

Today I came across a fb post pointing to this blog and I though, hey that would be a neat idea to follow along with.

I know some of these will be easy to find, and some are going to be hard.... Not sure I'm looking forward to #14 as it has an S on the end for me!!!


Also, I've decided to do it a little different, so I don't bombard you with a photo/blog post a day.  I'm going to be doing bundles of the photos in one post.

Starting today I'll be sharing #1-6


We recently (in the last 2 few years) renovated the basement/garage into a second lounge and a couple of bedrooms.  I have claimed one corner of the lounge (ok, I admit it - ALL of the lounge) for my sewing space.


I'm not very technical but one thing I really like are my button hole scissors, these help me cut button holes cleanly and precisely.  no slipping of the quick-un-pick for me.


This is the knit/toweling/polar fleece and extras part of my stash.  I also have a skinny 3 shelve unit for my quilting cottons.


Its my nephews birthday on the 7th and he will be 1.  I'm making him a hooded vest with peekaboopockets.



I don't have any amazing contraptions, I'm a simple sewer and can not be without my rotary cutter & mat, scissers, snips, tape measure and quick-un-pick.


This is me, I'm wearing one of my favourite tops, the Kymy Dolman that I blogged about here.
I know the 6th isn't until tomorrow but it was an easy one.



{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.

{Blog Tour} Pimp that Pattern ~ Day 2


Welcome to day 2 of the tour.

First up today we were going to have Gisela from Petit Gigi Handmade but I have not recieved the photo or blog link  from her, so instead we are going to hear from Kristie from Sew Out of Control.  

Isn't this retro romper just to die for, and OH THOSE POCKETS!!!




Next up we have Kylie from dribblepotsandtots.  Kylie made not 1 or 2 but 3!!! rompers for her daughter.  Wow now thats dedication.



Make sure you link up with the linky, if you are sewing along, or if you do not have a blog, please share on my fb page and group.
