Today I'll be showing off two pieces I made for myself with 2 of the patterns featured in the Bundle up sale. First up Jenny by Sis Boom!
Ha! you noticed that too, its a little long for me...but that's ok, I'll have to shorten it by the waist so I don't cut any of my print off, or wear high heels. I really wanted a floor sweeping maxi, its sweeping the floor alright!
This is a light weight cotton that I've had in my stash for about 10 years. Yay for me for using something I had, but also, why did I wait so long to use it?
What I love about this pattern, it fits, and its so easy to adjust. I never thought I would be able to make myself a dress like this without doing at least 2 or 3 muslins due to the fact that I have a larger bustline and a tiny enough waistline.
Best of all, JubeJube said I looked beautiful in my new dress and she want's one too.
Next up is Hailey by Modkid. This pattern can be made into a dess or tunic. Since I already had the Jenny dress I decided to make the Hailey by Modkid tunic length. The Hailey pattern was first introduced during the Girls' Bundle up a couple of months ago. I gave in a budled up to get some great deals on patterns for the girls and picked up the Hailey for JubeJube and Amelia. It was an instant hit!
I made a little modification to the pattern. Instead of rows of shirring under the bust line I made an elastic casing. I used a 1/4 inch elastic and I have no regrets to making that change. I'm loving the style of the kimono sleeves. Another fun thing about this pattern is that it can be made with either woven or knit fabrics.
Be sure to check out the other stops on the tour.
Until next time, xx.
PS. Thanks Pattern Revolution for getting the Bundle Up together!
