Blue Ridge Dress + Birds & the Bees Fabric

Hello, friends! Happy Tuesday :)

Last year in September, I got to review and play with some delicious fabric by a Michael Miller designer named Tamara Kate. It was so fun, and I am super lucky that she asked me to give it another go with her newest line, called Birds & the Bees!

If you have been around here (or Insta) for a while, you know I have a penchant for fabric with animals on it. So Tamara Kate's designs are a FAVE!

Birds & the Bees is such a fun line... lots of prints and tons of color!  I let Emmy choose her own prints for this dress, and I think she did great! She's definitely having a purple moment right now... 

I was having a hard time deciding on a pattern until the Blue Ridge Dress appeared... OMGPERFECT. Jenn from A Jennuine Life's version sealed the deal for me. How freaking pretty is that. Wicked freaking pretty, that's how.  

The Blue Ridge is a brilliant inaugural pattern by Hello Holli and I recommend it to the moon and back. 

When the inside is as pretty as the outside...

Em choosing her favorite butterfly... lol. :)

Pattern: Blue Ridge Dress and Top by Hello Holli

Paneled Sunsuit Pattern

Hello blog friends old and new!

I have some fun Summer makes and new patterns to show you this week and next. First up is the highly anticipated Paneled Sunsuit from my good friend Call Ajaire!

Pattern: Designs by Call Ajaire - Paneled Sunsuit
Available exclusively at UpCraftClub through this weekend.
Available on Etsy and Craftsy next week.

Fabric: Deliciousness from the Imagine Gnats shop - Teeny Dots Double Gauze in yellow, and Chambray Union Stretch in light indigo. YUMMY.

I am a hopeless sunsuit/romper/onesie fanatic, so this pattern is perfection to me!  It's got an incredible size range, and a fit that isn't 'babyish' on my five year old. You know what I mean?

I made View A, the short sunsuit. I was actually a tester for this pattern, so I can tell you first hand how much effort and detail went into its design. There are some great techniques and details in the Paneled Sunsuit - whether you've been sewing for years, or are new to the craft - you can create some seriously gorgeous and well-finished looks with this pattern!

Just take a look at ALL THE OPTIONS included in the Paneled Sunsuit pattern... I mean. C'mon!
As if this is not enough, Ajaire is offering a FREE newborn-sized version of the tank, so you can get a feel for her style of pattern-ing. Trust - it's FAB! Detailed to the max.

Speaking of details...

So get yourself over to UpCraftClub for your copy of the Paneled Sunsuit. I truly can't wait to see more of Designs by Call Ajaire... I have no doubt she'll be a phenomenal resource in the pattern world!

HEY! Happy Fourth of July weekend, everyone!
