The Made for Mermaids team has been busy cooking up your new favorite pattern, and I was lucky enough to test the girls version.
Introducing the Lea Dolman!
Lea is a super easy sew available in sizes 1/2 through 14 and offers options for a romper, dress, and tunic. It’s a dolman style, which means the sleeve is part of the body (woot woot…no sleeves to set in!) The pattern is designed for knits, although a woven can be used for the dress or tunic skirt.
Lea has a boatneck with a modest scoop in the back for easy on and off. The neckline is a simple hem, and the sleeves can be finished with a hem or cuff. And the pièce de résistance?
Yup…that’s right…POCKETS!! I love when a pattern offers a pocket option!
There’s also a Mama Lea, with the same options. Think of all the mama and me possibilities! Both patterns will be on sale individually for $7 each through 8/27, and a discounted bundle will also be available for a short time!
I feel that I could write a chapter on the influence of sewing and motherhood…
