I’ve been quiet on the blog recently but not this week. THREE patterns that I have been testing over the last few weeks are all releasing today! Have you checked out Alisha’s post on The Sotnos top we tested together? I sure am glad that I got my daughter’s First Communion dress done early so I could kick back and do some fun and less stressful projects!
Hello again! Are you wanting to add some variety to your kids’ wardrobe of plain raglan shirts? The Sotnos Shirt and Tunic from The Eli Monster is the pattern for you! Just released today, the Sotnos Shirt and Tunic features buttons or snaps on one shoulder for a fun spin on a traditional raglan. This pattern is available in a girly version (a high/low swing version and a tunic) as well as a unisex version. The Eli Monster is offering the two versions at a bundle price as well during the release sale!
The Show and Tell Project team is happy to celebrate another awesome pattern release from the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop!
My teammate Emily and I were both chosen to test the Tea Party Dress and Top. Remember our first joint post when we tested the Very Merry together in October? We are posting jointly today to share our creations with you!
I was selected to test the size 8 top and Emily was chosen to test the size 6 dress for her little girl.
A few weeks ago, I had the realization that some of my old standby patterns were no longer appealing to my oldest child. I started browsing around for the perfect pattern to appeal to her and fell in love with a new design from Sofilantjes.

Today, I am going to talk about the pattern I chose to make my daughter’s First Holy Communion and Confirmation gown.
Last summer, I decided that I would make my daughter’s First Communion gown out of my mother’s wedding gown that was handmade by my grandmother.
I am going to be honest. I was tempted to purchase one. I could not figure out what I was going to do with the particular style of my mother’s dress.
Hello, dear readers, and a belated Happy New Year to you all!
I am back from a break from blogging AND sewing. We went on a family adventure in November to reconnect as a family, and then straight into the Christmas rush, and Christmas travels. While we had a blast, it is nice to settle back into a routine again at home, school, and with my sewing! I have big sewing plans for this spring and I hope to share them with you over the next several weeks.
The Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop released the Hyde Park Hoodie recently (9/10/15) (affiliate link). I am reposting this tutorial on 10/1/2015 since for some reason it does not appear on the homepage of the blog. The tutorial will still remain up in the tutorials section.
In my years of sewing patterns created by independent designers, I have never seen such anticipation of a pattern release! I was lucky enough to be chosen to test the pattern and I can honestly say it is my favorite thing I have ever made for myself.
