It’s time to Bundle UP with BOY patterns!!
Bundle UP is a group of patterns by awesome pattern designers offered at a discounted price for a short time. They’re on sale together for just seven days! And the sale starts FRIDAY!
I got to sew up the Honor Roll Raglan Henley by the ever talented and astounding Bonnie from Fishsticks Designs. I’ve sewn her boys tie tons of times, but this is my first time with one of her garment patterns and I was not disappointed! I may have to get my hands on her reversible hoodie and Playhouse Dress patterns because I’ve been drooling over them for awhile!
I doubted myself with this pattern several times since I’m still building my confidence with knits, but it went together like a dream! The pocket was easy, the neck came out perfect on the first try, the snaps are perfectly located. Just top notch from top to bottom.
Ollie was a bit of a ham for me during our photoshoot. He wasn’t interested in modeling for me, but was very interested in the security guard who thought he was adorable.
But mostly he was bored with me. hehehe The shirt though? Anything but boring!! So precious, right?
If this face can’t convince you, nothing will.
Go check out the sale, see the other incredible patterns, and visit the other blogs on the tour! This is such an amazing collection of patterns that you don’t want to miss!

I had the pleasure of testing sewVery’s Sunny Dress during the Summer Sundress Series on Melly Sews, and now I’m so happy to help the amazing Veronica promote her very first pattern!
Sofia instantly loved the Sunny Dress because of the open back. I’ve mentioned several times before that her back heats her up in the summer and I tried to make her as many backless clothing options as possible. This dress definitely fit the bill and she wore it most of the summer! She even chose it for her family birthday party we had at my parents house.
But sadly Sofia had a huge growth spurt this summer (that kid completely skipped an entire shoe size!) and the dress no longer fits her. Luckily for Chloe, however, it’s nearly perfect. And she LOVES it.
When I was making the dress, I didn’t pay attention to the cut lines and I cut it too short, so I added the contrast from the ruffle to the bottom and I’m wild about the result.
The adorable little ruffle puts the perfect touch on the dress.
And didn’t I mention the beautiful, open back?! So sweetly incredible.
During this amazing pattern tour (check out the other blogs featuring the Sunny Dress & Top below!), Veronica is offering 20% off the purchase price of the pattern using the code SUNNY20. CLICK HERE to get your copy! Don’t delay, the sale ends Sunday, the 17th.
AND…Veronica is giving away a copy of her beautiful Sunny Dress & Top! Enter below for your chance to win!
