Big V, little v, what begins with V?

New Release


Today I released the lastes baby pattern, the Big V little v PulloverThis unisex pattern features a ribbed v-neck with the options of: Big V, deep-v with wider band and little v, shallow-v with narrower band as well as long or short sleeves. Make with sweatshirt fleece for chilly days or jersey for simple coverup.

*Edited to add: this pattern will be the first to also be released in larger sizes! I am currently working on grading it for sizes 3T – size 8 (kids).

I was planing on having the Incy Wincy Bikini be the next release but this one came together just a little faster. The bikini is still coming, I plan on releaseing it this weekend.

Next! Getting ready for new samples


On wards and up words I guess. Fabric is on the way for the next round of samples. Once done, the grading can commence.

Since the Monogram Hoddie is done it is time to start my next baby pattern. There are three patterns in the works; leggings, t-shirt (crew neck and cross over shoulder) and fitted pyjamas (top and bottom). Two of the three are unisex so more boy friendly patterns! The shirts are almost done, still need to make adjustments for bands/ribbing and the I still need to make the pattern for the bottoms but I’m getting there.

The Park Top will be released with a v-neck variation and that is up next for sampling. It will likely be the first women’s wear release. Even though this one is supper quick easy to sew I’m am trying to work out the clearest instructions for the v-neck.

I decided to start a new pattern for women. A low cut v-neck wrap dress. After re-making this dress for myself the other day I thought it would be good one to release. It is one of my favourite dresses since it is so easy to wear. The first one I made (from bamboo jersey) I wore all through my pregnancy and after; it still fits too!


J is for Jordan – hood sample 3


Final sample is done!!! Jordan tried on his hoodie today and it fits great, including the hood! I was thinking of making it longer but after seeing it on him I think it is fine the way it is. (He is tall for his age so if it fine on him it should be good.)

Next up is grading. I’ll be doing sizes 3, 6, 12 and 18 months as well as 2 years this time. I haven’t taken the construction photos yet but I can do that when I sample other sizes. I also only finalized my construction method with this sample and it is easier to take pictures when you have a clear method in your head. I at least have photos for the pattern cover! So cute!

I am always looking for pattern testers, let me know if your interested. (including for the first three to be released.)
