Hey all, I know its been a while...more than a month actually since I've posted to my blog. But I've been busy with tons of fun stuff that I can't wait to show you. For now here we are to celebrate everyday wear with Petite Stitchery & Co. Be sure to read to the end and enter the rafflecopter easy giveaway!
This group of three talented ladies have created a pattern collection with so much vesitilty and style that its easy to used for dressing up and everyday fun.
From this collection I've made the Sparrow tunic, the Fawn leggings (with and without the tuxedo stripe) and my favorite so far, the Rosemary crop top.
I made Sparrow and Fawn for Amelia. She just loves peplum style tops.
For the Fawn leggings I used a fun stitching technique (flat lock) that I learned in a class about exploring and using your serger to its full potential. It just gives the garment that little extra detail to make it so much more interesting and creative. So much more fun stitching techiniques and fun information to come...this all from a class that I took at Penelope-Machines a Coudre.
Now about Rosemary! So to start I've been hoarding this fabric from Birch Fabrics for some time now...it was purchased from Phat Quarter Shop on Etsy and there is even a facebook group...go check them out to get details on Black Friday deals and savings!
Rosemary is a great layering piece, with this huge collar. *Here's a tip make sure if you have a driectional fabric to cut the collar upside down to get the print right side up on you collar. it would just be so sad if those little girls would be upside down.
JubeJube also has the basic style of the Fawn leggings on. The fabric is from Art Gallery, purchased at my local fabric shop.
I do think that there is so much potential with this wonderful little pattern company. There is just one think I would really like to see, please, pretty please stop putting sleeves cut on the fold. This is my opinion, but its so worth the extra time, effort, ink and paper to get the full sleeve simply becasue the front and back sleeve should have a slightly different shape. It just makes for such a better fit.
ok, I need to go play the fishing game with the girls...it looks like so much fun!
