Adventure Tee

Filed under: Pattern,Sewing - 19 Jul 2014

I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of sewing for Ollie. I definitely enjoy all the girly outfits, don’t get me wrong, but sewing for this stud is always enjoyable. Maybe it’s because the pieces always go together quickly (and I never have to ruffle or gather anything!) or maybe it’s because I adore the print mixing on him. Whatever it is, I hope it doesn’t stop anytime soon.

This is the Adventure Tee from GoTo Patterns and was just released with the latest Pattern Anthology Make Believe collection!

The Adventure Tee will definitely be a staple in Ollie’s wardrobe. I adore everything about this shirt! It’s a great little unisex tee that’s got so many options, and is seriously so, so easy to make.

I made the 18m size because he’s square between the 12 and 18 month sizes. I knew it wouldn’t be huge on him, so I made the bigger size for longer wear and I’m so glad I did! I used some blue on blue stripe knit I’ve been hoarding in my stash since before he was conceived. It’s crazy soft and is such a great color on him. We’ll be layering this bad boy when the weather cools off for sure!

I’m a huge fan of Andrea’s patterns. From start to finish they’re such a professional, easy experience. Printing is fast, the pattern pieces go together like a dream, the instructions are spot-on, easy to follow, and packed full of helpful tips! I know I’m always going to have a good time sewing her patterns, and the Adventure Tee is no different.

I know I’ve gone on Ollie picture overload, but I just totally adore this age. And seriously–elbow dimples. Is there anything better?!

I paired his tee with my Oakley shorts sans pockets. I really still completely love the cut and fit of these shorts. They’re so great, and I’m not just saying that because they’re my pattern! I mean, look at that bum! I wish I looked that good from behind.

You should definitely go grab these patterns while you can get them bundled! I promise, this tee delivers in every possible way. Check out the Pattern Anthology website for all the details.

Romper Week

Filed under: Pattern,Sewing - 17 Jun 2014

I’ve been so excited about this post for romper week! I’ve been wanting to make my Kudzu coveralls into a short romper since I designed them. I ADORE the results! Ollie lived in the pairs I made him last winter and since they’re basically all he wears, I know he’ll get lots of wear from these, too.

I spotted this fabric in JoAnn’s and immediately knew I wanted to use it to try the short version of the Kudzu coverall. And I’m wild about the way the steely grey-blue of the background perfectly matches his incredible eyes.

I can’t believe my little sweetie is 16 months old now! He’s growing and changing so fast, and I’m trying to soak up every minute I get with him. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll like him in rompers, so I’m taking full advantage now, while he has no opinion!

Still one of my favorite things about the Kudzu is the dress option for perfect sibling outfits! Can you get over the preciousness of these two?!

Ella was overjoyed to have an outfit that matched her brother. She swirled and twirled in her dress, talking about how they had the same stars and how pretty it was.

Rompers on a precious babe, how can you go wrong? I’m so happy with how this turned out and I’ve decided to update my pattern! It’s not ready yet, but will be coming soon with the short option. Can’t wait!!

I’m so excited to be sharing my post today! I get to kick off the Muse of the Morning pattern tour! I tried the Billy Bright Eyes Snappy Tee and I’ve got to say, I’m in love.

I had a hard time selecting fabric because when I went to my large and ever-growing stack of knits–they were all girls! I dug around and found this solid blue that I adored and knew would pair perfectly with some Oakley’s I’d just made him.

The shirt was incredibly easy to sew together and I love the sweet snap detail on the shoulder! The fit is incredible, too, and perfect on my guy. And doing double seams really gives it a professional touch!
