Seen and Sewn Together Tour (Cozy Cardigan Hack)

Welcome to the Seen & Sewn Together blog tour.

Arielle from Seen & Sewn Patterns is creating patterns with a focus on encouraging people to join the #handmaderevolution by sewing their own handmade wardrobe.  A group of sewing bloggers have joined together to share with you how we’ve taken the Seen & Sewn Patterns and let our creativity loose with them. We want to inspire you whether you’re just starting or well on your way to building your handmade wardrobe.

Welcome to day 4 of the tour!  Kim here, and I am one of today’s stops.  I am very excited to be here to share my version of the Cozy Cardigan with you!  I have a love hate relationship with dusters.  I love the length of them, but I always end up disappointed because they're more like puddlers than dusters.  I am sitting pretty at around 5’1” so anything that is ankle length ends up dragging on the floor so store bought is out for me…even at petite length.  When I saw a tour call for Seen and Sewn Patterns, I took a wander through her pattern shop and found the Cozy Cardigan.  Immediately, my mind started turning over how I could turn that into a duster length cardigan.  The pattern is already pretty amazing as drafted because it hits right about knee length in back, but I was sure it was perfect for hacking into a duster.  I’m a jeans and tee kinda gal, but sometimes, it's nice to dress things up. 

I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted for the fabric, but I went ahead and put the pattern together.  Once together, I measured how much longer the back would need to be to make it the length I wanted.  For me, that would be six inches.  The front is drafted to be shorter than the front to give this awesome hi-lo effect so I needed to add twelve inches total to the front to make both pieces the same length in front and back.  There pieces have lines marked for shortening/lengthening so that made the modifications easy to do, and all I had to do was smooth out the lines after extending.  Don’t forget to lengthen your neckband as I possibly did, possibly.  I also reduced the width to make the neckline a little thinner.

I ended up going with a white sequined fabric that didn’t have much stretch so I sized up (I was a large based on the measurement chart), and it worked out perfectly!  I also opted to leave off the cuffs and simply hemmed the sleeves so that I wouldn’t have to fight getting them one and off with the fabric I chose.  I toyed with the idea of straightening the side hems, but I decided to keep the curve and adjusted the side seam on the front as well to match the back to give it a bit of an upward dip after construction.

I am so excited that I could make me a simple wardrobe piece that fits me perfectly, and the pattern was a breeze to sew together.  The directions were clear and concise, and the instructions had illustrations for every step.  I’m super visual so I really appreciated having something that I could refer to if I wasn’t sure that I was doing the right thing while I was sewing everything together.  The pattern pieces lined up perfectly for me, and really, putting the pieces together was the longest part of the process.  Sewing the cardigan together was incredibly fast, and I was done with all of the sewing in about 45 minutes…maybe even faster.  I really love everything about this piece, and I am so excited to see what Arielle creates next!  

As I said before, there are bunch of us who have joined together this week as part of this tour.  Take a look at the line up to see who has already shared their creations and whose stop is still to come:

Fashionista Fab (crop jean jacket from Winter Wear Designs)

My daughter is always cold…always.  It was 93 degrees out today, and she left the school with a hoodie on.  She’s always looking for something to throw over her top when we’re running out the door.  The new Fashonista Jean Jacket from Winter Wear Designs is pretty amazing as an easy coverup! 

Let’s talk details before I start getting too far!

- Size range from 1 to 14
- A4, letter, and A0 print sizes
- Layered printing
- Color photos for each step
- Collarless neck with neck facing
- Button closure in front and at the cuffs
- Welt pocket detail

The pattern is designed for non stretch denims and twill, and we used both denim and duck fabric for ours.  We saw a rose print in Hobby Lobby and needed it.  Well, okay, I needed it and my daughter went along with it.  The finished length hits between the waist and high hip so it make this perfect for fall layering! 

The front closes with jean buttons, snaps, or regular buttons, and it’s really your preference on which you use. We went with jean buttons, and they were a snap to attach.  Just grabbed myself a hammer and schwacked away until they were securely attached.

I really loved the front yoke design.  It was a little fiddly for me to get attached because I’m super impatient and didn’t want to take the time to get it right the first time, but after reading through the directions a second time it wasn’t as hard as I made it on myself. 

I will warn you that this isn’t a fast sew. You will want to take your time to match everything up properly so you don’t end up with your pieces looking wonky.  I wasn’t too sure of my lines until I added the faux felled seams…and man, it was awesome!  The extra time that it takes to get everything lined up is so worth the amazing results you’ll get when you’re done! 

For the one we made during testing, we mixed the pink roses with some floral denim.  I am a little jealous of my daughter’s jacket, and I really need one for myself now.  HA! I’m not so patiently waiting for Suzanne to release a women’s version of this amazing pattern!...and it’s just in time for what I HOPE is cooler weather on the horizon.

AND, it’s on sale at a special release price.  It retails for $9.95 but you can grab it now for $7.50!  I promise you won’t be disappointed!   Just head over to Winter Wear Designs and click add the Fashionista Jean Jacket to your cart.  So easy to do and you'll be really glad you did!!

Thanks so much for reading along!  Be sure to share your  makes in the Winter Wear Designs Fun FB group so we can see your masterpieces!

Blessings and Happy Sewing,

Running to the Head of the Class with Ellie and Mac

We are well into the second week of school for my kiddos, and they wear uniforms everyday. While I missed out on back to school sewing for them, I definitely needed some teacher ready clothes to wear for those days when I’m subbing.  I was loving the tee and jeans combo that I had going on all summer, but for school, I need something a little less casual. 

I went with the Women’s Tee Dress (*This link is an affiliate link, and I do receive a small commission on any patterns purchased with this link), and I added a cowl neck to it for those days when I’m leaning into a conversation with some of our “not quite finished growing” kiddos.  I absolutely love how it turned out, and I was able to add the cowl with no modification to the neckline!  Double win!! *I do want to note that I received the pattern free as part of this tour, but the opinions in this post are completely my own*

So, let’s take a quick look at this pattern before my train takes off:
  • Size range is from XS – 4XL
  • Three sleeve options: short, 3/4, or long
  • Two length options: mid-thigh or knee
  • No trim, layered pattern pieces
  • Color photos with each step for those of us who are visual learners

I really love the mid thigh option, but I opted for the knee length.  I might make some shorter ones as well that I can pair with some leggings.  I took an inch off the length to accommodate my “finished growing too soon” height.  The pattern is drafted for 5’5”, and I’m 5’2” or 5’3” depending on the time of day.  I decided to go with my height at the tallest point because I’ll take all the inches I can get!  I also did a full arm adjustment (I’m not sure if that’s what it’s actually called, but it’s what I call it) because my upper arms are larger than the width of the pattern. 

Winters are usually pretty mild here in Oklahoma, but there’s still a pretty good nip in the air so I did the 3/4 sleeve version because it’s brisk in the classrooms some days.  This gives me the  option to wear this when it starts to get  warmer.  I can easily throw a cardi (Ellie and Mac has some pretty amazing patterns for these as well!) over it, and we’re off and running!

This was such a fast sew.  I think the longest part of the process was deciding how much of a cowl I wanted at the neck.  The pattern does not actually come with an option for a cowl neck, but it was pretty easy to figure out how to accomplish the look.  I love how it turned out because it wasn’t sitting right up against my neck but it does give me a little bit of coverage.  I actually went with a pretty short cowl so there wasn’t a whole ton of fabric added to the neckline.  In total, I think it took me an hour to make this dress, and that included gluing the pattern pieces  together.

The dress is pretty loose fitting so it’s perfect for moving around the classroom when I’m up front teaching or running after little ones at recess.  It’s also pretty forgiving of those areas that I prefer to keep a little looser.  I’m trying to figure out how much fabric I need to make me one for every day of the school week because I could absolutely see this being my teacher version of a school uniform. 

There are a lot of patterns in the Ellie and Mac collection that would be great teacher makes, and right now, Lindsey has her patterns on sale so it’s a great time to catch some deals on patterns!  We’ll get a chance to see some amazing makes for both the kiddos and the teachers (or mommas, even!) from everyone on the tour.  Be sure to stop by and show the designers some love for their looks!  AND, there’s a giveaway that you can enter to win a $50 store credit!

Keeping sharp this summer!

We’re at that point in the summer where I’m looking for things that I can give to the kids to keep their brains from turning to jello before school starts back.  I’m talking anything…books, workbooks, educational games, worksheets…that will get their brains moving on something besides how booooooored they are and how looooooong it’s going to be before the next thing we do. 

Enter  Now, you do need to have an account to access the resources, but it’s FREE!!  Free is singing my song because there are so many resources available to us to help grow our children’s minds.  Anyway, your account is free, and once you have access, you can get summer boost worksheets.  There are also games, songs, activities…there’s a lot of stuff out there.  

I happened on the site when I was doing some research for fun games to play with our kids ministry.  I didn’t really look to far into the site until one of their staff members, Cassie, contacted me to ask me what I thought of the site and if I’d be willing to do a quick blog post about the site if I liked it.  *toodled off to look at the site*…and it really is a font of amazing stuff.  If you’re a teacher, there’s the option to sign up as a teacher when you create your account.  I have to be honest, I don’t know the difference between a teacher account and a parent account so I can’t really speak to that. 

They even sent me a worksheet that I could give to my daughter for multiplication practice!  Both kids tried it out and loved it!  There are also mazes, matching words, word searches, crosswords.  It just depends on what your kids enjoy.  My daughter is a math lover so this worksheet was right up her alley.   My son has already asked if I can find something with reading since he prefers that to math so we’ll be printing up some of those here soon!

If you’d like to try out the worksheet we did, I attached a copy of it here that you should be able to copy and save!

We hope you are having a fantastical summer!

Summer Sewing with Ellie and Mac (part 2)

Hi, there!  Well, I’m lucky enough to be back for another stop on the Ellie and Mac Get Ready for Summer Tour sponsored by Seams Sew Lo!  My first go round, I made my daughter a Sunshine Romper.  This time, my son wanted to get in on the patriotic fun.  For him, I used the same panel from Peek A Boo Fabric Shop as I did with the romper.  Only I made him a modified Half Pipe Tee and paired it with some High Tide Board Shorts.  I made those in cotton woven that he will wear as regular shorts instead of swim shorts.  **I do want to add that I received these patterns for free, but the opinions expressed here are my own.  Links to the patterns are affiliate links so I do make a small commission if you buy them using my link.  

Let’s talk about that tee first.  I personally love this pattern because you can color block the pieces to get some really neat looks.  There is also an applique in the pattern that you can use if you want. 

Half Pipe Tee details:
  •           Wide range of sizes:  12 months to 14
  •           Color blocked front and back (I did a solid front on mine)
  •          No trim pages
  •          Layered pattern pieces so you can choose what sizes you want to print
  •          Fully photographed step by step tutorial

This pattern is a unisex pattern so you can make these for your little ladies as well!  AND, there’s a women’s version for some cool Me and Mom sets!  For my son’s top, he wanted the same panel as big sister so I cut the top as a solid piece.  This was a simple hack…I took out a ¼” to the front bodice piece and cut on the fold.  Easy peasy!  For the back, I color blocked so I removed ¼” from the piece and cut two pieces. 

My son is super tiny (one of his favorite things about himself) so he’s only just now starting to grow into a size 7.  He probably could fit the size 6 still, but we went one size higher to a 7 to give  this shirt a little bit longer life  span in his wardrobe. 

It was a super fast sew.  I think I made this one in about 45 minutes.  That included cutting fabric and construction.  With just 4 pattern pieces, it was also a quick one to piece together.  This is one of my go to t-shirt patterns for my kids because I can mix and match fabrics to get some really cool shirts for the kids. 

Now, the shorts.  These are the High TideBoard Shorts, and the recommended fabric is board short material.  I actually have made him a pair of those and made the swim bottoms that he can wear under them for water bugging.  Those are also part of the pattern!  The only thing I modified on this was putting on pocket instead of two because I forgot all about adding the second pocket when I was sewing.  I told my son that was intentional, but it was absolutely because I brain farted.

High Tide details:

  •           Another one with a wide range:  also starts at 12 months and goes up to 14.
  •           Two length options: above or below the knee
  •           No trim pages
  •           Layered pattern pieces
  •           Photographs with each step
My son prefers his shorts longer so I made the below the knee version.  I did the size 7 length because he’s been eating like a horse lately so I’m anticipating some growth this summer.  I did cut the waist to a size 6 elastic, though, because I’m not sure where he’s putting the food he eats.  He’s still super skinny…

Like I said earlier, these ones are a cotton woven, and I sewed down the elastic in the waistband because he’s always on the move and I didn’t want the waist to be moving around with him.  It just gave the elastic some stability as he was running and playing.   These shorts are pretty roomy so he had plenty of space to move around and run after his sister. 

He was pretty stoked that I made him an outfit that matched his sister’s so they can be “Independence twins” when we go visit their grandparents this summer.  Both of these patterns are on sale right now at the Ellie andMac webstore so you can save yourself some money when you head over to get you copy of these patterns!  Lindsey has also provided a store credit that you can enter to win. I’ll give you a link to the giveaway here in a sec!

Summer Sewing with Ellie and Mac

Aaah, summer!  I love these early days of summer when it’s not too hot and not cold…mostly the not cold part…I also love that it’s time to put away the bulky clothes and pull out the shorts and tee’s.  Or in my daughter’s case, the rompers!  She has some sort of love affair with rompers and would wear one every day of the week if she could.  So, when Lo from Seams Sew Lo put out the call for the Ellie and Mac Get Ready for Summer Tour…why, yes, please!  I’m super excited to be one of the stops on the tour!  Nay went round and round on what pattern she wanted most, and she landed on the Sunshine Romper.  I do want to add a disclaimer that I received the pattern for free, but all opinions in this post are my own.  This post also contains affiliate links which means I get a small commission when you order through my link.

This romper is super cute!  You have a one shoulder bodice with bubble shorts…and my daughter is crazy about these!  I think she has 5 of them now with at least two more that she wants before the summer fully arrives.  I even let her pick her own fabrics, and she went with a Peek A Boo Pattern Shop panel with red and blue solids. 

Ok, so this pattern:
  • Very large size range: starts at 2T and goes up to 12
  • One shoulder bodice with a strap option for the open shoulder
  • Bubble shorts
  • Two waistband styles
  • NO TRIM pages (can I get a woot woot!)
  • Layered printing so you just print what you need
  • A0 print shop pattern pieces so you can have the entire pattern at once
  • Step by step instructions with photos if you’re like me and need a visual
This pattern is designed for knits, and you really want to pay attention to the stretch recovery.  If you have a fabric with not so great recovery, the bodice will end up stretched out by the end of the day and there will be no modesty at all.

Like I said, we opted for a panel for the bodice front and went with solids for everything else.  I sized mine as an 8 with 10 length because Nay is in a weird in between size with her clothes.  It was a little long on her, but here in about a month, it will be perfect!

I usually measure her legs and cut to her leg for the elastics, but I went a little wider so that she would have some room to move.  She has a few that are cut to her leg width and loves them, but she wanted something a little looser about the legs since we’re going to a fair with her grandparents for the 4th of July.  I also opted for the straight waistband on this one but I still added the elastic to give it a little bit of structure.

This pattern is a pretty quick sew.  I think I completed this one start to finish in about an hour.  It was the perfect project to fit in between a meeting and having to pick up the kids…I had a total of 5 pattern pieces (6 if you use a shoulder strap), and with the no trim pattern pieces it was pretty fast work to piece together.  I think the longest part of the process was gathering my shorts so really fast sew, and I do see a lot of these making their way into our summer wardrobe here! 

Lindsey has some really great patterns for the summer so hop on over to Ellie and Mac Patterns and take a look at her entire collection!  She also makes boys patterns (my son is super upset that I didn’t make him something yet so I might be doing another blog post with some Ellie and Mac for him)!  AND all patterns are on sale right now, no coupon needed…just sayin’… 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Like I said, I’m just today’s stop on the tour.  Don’t miss out on the amazingness from the other ladies on the tour!  Here’s the schedule for the Ellie and Mac Summer Tour…oh, and a chance to enter for a giveaway to win $50 store credit to Ellie and Mac!

Victory with the Victoire (La Femme Collection from Laela Jeyne)

Are we safe to say that winter is finally getting evicted?  I’m scared to jinx it, but here in Oklahoma, it sure feels a lot like summer is right around the corner!  I decided that I’m going to try something new this year and get myself into some dresses…a far cry from my usual sweaties and tee combo (which, by the way, I count as pretty stylish).  Marisa, from Laela Jeyne Patterns, announced that she was planning to do a women’s collection, and one of the dresses was a button down summer dress.  It, like the rest of the collection, is amazing!  I think I have four of these dresses now, each in a different type of fabric.  I’m contemplating a denim and lace one in the near future…

SOO, when Marisa sent an invite out to join her La Femme Collection Blog Tour, I was down for it immediately!  I decided to make myself another Victoire dress for the tour, but I cannot wait to grab the other patterns and get sewing on the other ones as well.  I do want to add a disclaimer that I am an affiliate with Laela Jeyne so I do receive a small commission for any pattern you buy using my affiliate links.

Hi, everyone, I’m Kim from Nini and Ash, and I’m one of the day two stops on the tour!  I’ve already seen some of the other outfits the ladies on the tour have made, and you aren’t going to want to miss the amazingness that is.  I’m pretty stoked to be a part of the tour with the rest of these talented ladies.

Like I said, I made a Victoire dress, but first, let’s get some pattern details on the table so you know what you’re working with here:

- There is a huge size range on this pattern.  It starts at size 00 and goes up to 26.
- Bodice pieces in different cup sizes so you can get the perfect fit
- Two length options: mini and tea
- Two strap options: you can use either 2 or 4 straps
- Optional bodice ruffle
- Extremely clear and concise directions and illustrations for each step
- No trim pages…can I get an AMEN on this one?

There are a lot of options on this dress so you can literally make over a week’s worth of dresses and never have the same one twice.  I have one in faux suede, one in a medium weight cotton, one in lightweight woven, and the one I featured here with a silk/cotton blend from Boho Fabrics.  This one is probably my favorite, though.  It’s so soft and drapey.  The fabric was a double border print so I used both sides to make the dress, and it came out exactly as I pictured in my head.

I ended up blending sizes for mine because I fell right in between a size 16 and 18 on measurements.  The straps are designed to be a little longer at first so that you can measure the exact length for your comfort.  I was going to hack this to make ties for the shoulders, but I decided that I love the look of the solid straps so I stuck to the pattern as drafted. 

Construction took a little longer for this one to piece together the cups, but man, it sure is worth that little extra time because it fits me like a glove.  I usually have issues with my bust because I’m a little smaller chested.  I measured as a B cup, and it was spot on.  There's also a little bit of ruching on the cups, and I love the way it looks when it's done.  You will want to get yourself a strapless or those stick on bra cups because the straps will show or in my case, the top of the bra poked out the top.  I think some of the ladies were looking at how to do a bra connected to the dress as well so that might be an option for my next one.  I also took a bit of length from the bodice because I measure in at 5’1” on a good day.  The pattern is drafted for a 5’5” woman, and I sure wish I had those extra 4 inches sometimes. 

I will say that you want to be pretty deliberate about buttons because you’ll get some separation on the button placket if you don’t place them just right.  I pinned my placket in place first so that I could figure out exactly where I wanted the snaps.  Yup, I went there…I used snaps.  I had buttons picked out but the kids wanted to help with the buttons.  My daughter chose light pink, and my son chose royal blue and orange (because, OKC Thunder, Mom!).  We went with pink, and I made a mental note to not ask my son for fashion advice in future.  I chose the mini length because I wanted to have something a little shorter for the hot weather we get here in the summertime. 

I’m pretty stoked about this dress!  It’s gorgeous in pretty much every fabric I tried.  Marisa really does go above and beyond to make sure that her patterns fit every body type and are easy to blend because, let’s face it, MOST of us are a blend of different sizes. 

Faux suede version
Like I said earlier, I’m one of the day two stops, so there are several other ladies who have joined the tour and made up some beautiful items for the tour.  Please be sure to stop in and show them some love.   This is our tour schedule for this week!
