The Rowan Tee Plus Self-drafted Skirt.

Today I have a bit of a three-in-one post.
Mostly I want to tell you about The Rowan Tee from Titchy Threads designed by Laura (who is also blogging at Craftstorming) because that is an aaaaamazing pattern! Seriously!

But I have also made a self-drafted skirt which is a development from a pair of self drafted pants I made when I participated in Project Run & Play.
The skirt was supposed to be worn with The Rowan Tee but then big sister wanted to join the party so she got to wear it and will join this post further down.

Lastly I feel like I own to show you that thermal knit really is not that difficult to work with. If you read THIS post you will understand what I'm talking about.

From Dress to Shirt - Pattern Remix Tutorial

So like promised in yesterday's Mini Hudson Pants post here comes a mini tutorial on how you in a few easy steps can change the original dress pattern from the book Happy Homemade, vol 5 by Ruriko Yamada to this shirt.
Just to be clear you will need the book to make this shirt. I'm only giving you the information to the changes I did.

Mini Hudson Blog Tour

Unless my blog is the only one you read I do not think I have to introduce you to the Mini Hudson Pants, do I?!
They are these cool knit pants for kids, slightly baggy, side pockets and with tapered legs designed by the talented Kelli from True Bias.
I was truly honored to be invited to her pattern tour. Thank you Kelli!

Sweatshirt Dress

Sooooo once upon a time in the beginning of October I made myself a sweatshirt dress! 
I was happy with the result and was looking forward to wear it....you know as soon as I had blogged about it. Haaaaaa! And here we are in the end of December and like I already wrote on my Facebook page, the finished-not-worn-because-not-blogged-dress had become an inventory of my sewing room that I did not even notice any more. NOT okay! Especially since a dress in this material is not a year around dress for me.

Princess Knit Dresses.

This Thanksgiving we went on our first ever trip to Disney World.
There was just about a thousand things I did not know about Disney World and one of those things were that it is quite common that little girls that are into such things dresses as princesses when they visit. 
I can't say I was surprised but had I not seen THIS post from the goddess of all sewing bloggers Jessica from Me Sew Crazy my knit stash would still had been packed with knit in all these questionable colors and my girls would have worn leggings and t-shirts or something else non-princessey (ay ay ay).

She loves those dresses and so do I. 
The pattern is designed by the lovely Abby from Sew Much Ado and she has done an amazing job making a pattern that is not only super pleasant to work with but also results in a dress that is comfortable to wear but looks super stylish.

Bubble Shorts by DoGuincho

Shorts in winter? Mais bien sûr!
It's all about the styling!


I have made a pair of DoGuincho's Bubble Shorts.
Beside it being an awesome pattern, it also gives a great result. Two equally important things when we talk sewing patterns, right!
