This top/dress has a fully lined bodice, which means no neckband! (If you are still struggling with neckbands, check out my foolproof tutorial here.) There are multiple sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short, half, and long), multiple skirt lengths (tunic, mini, knee and maxi), an option for a one or two shoulder bodice, and a ruffled or plain bodice for the single sleeve. This dress can be super casual or more elegant depending on your choice of fabric.Read More
I know Halloween is over, but girls play dress up all year long, so why can’t the boys?! The new Master of Disguise pattern from Sew A Little Seam is seriously the best all inclusive boys dress up pattern out there. There are so many options! (Muscle suits, masks, jackets, vests, shirts, pants, belts, hats) Kelly also has phenomenal instructions. Out of all the PDF pattern’s I have sewn the last few years, her layout is definitely my favorite.

Ellie and Mac just released the Men’s Zip It jacket (currently on sale through Sunday!). There is also a Women’s and a kid’s version so the whole family can match! This jacket is easily reversible and is fairly simple sew. The hardest part is probably the zipper. The perfect project for this time of year! (Unless you are in the southern hemisphere…bring on the swimsuits!!)

Ellie and Mac just released these cute Grow With Me Pjs! The best thing about this pattern is that it’s free! Everyone loves free stuff, especially around the holidays (am i right?). Another perk of this pattern is it’s a grow with me style. The cuffs are doubled in length so they can be folded up when they are smaller and unfolded when their arms and legs grow longer. The bodice length is also more of a tunic length for longer wear and there is a dress/nightgown option. There are also options for a faux placket and ruffles. AND if you don’t want to color block the top, you can just overlap the bodice top and bottom pieces by 1/4” (the seam allowance) while you are cutting out your fabric.Read More
