Make Laundry, Don’t Do Laundry: SLPco Adelyn

 

Thanks for stopping by Sew and Tell Project today for our first ever blog tour post! We are proudly participating in the Make Laundry, Don’t Do Laundry Tour featuring fabric generously provided for us by The Fabric Fairy and their Fairy Care services.

The Fabric Fairy carries an extensive line of Riley Blake knits as well as other trendy knits, organic fabrics, and performance knits and notions. I selected to use two colorways from some of her newest Riley Blake arrivals : The Desert Bloom Collection. I chose the blue floral for my main print, and the blue stripe for the coordinate. As in my previous Fabric Fairy experiences, shipping was prompt and well-packaged with a friendly customer service experience. Thank you, Meg!

If you’ve been following along the Make Laundry, Don’t Do Laundry tour, hosted by Paisley Roots, Pearberry Lane, and the Crafting Fiend, you know that the theme of the tour is sewing that you can do in the time it takes to do a load of laundry. I will be honest – I have never gotten so behind in laundry that I’ve needed to SEW something to wear last minute, but I have been in many situations where I needed or wanted the perfect article of clothing and didn’t have time to do “catch and release” shopping with my rural location and hard-to-fit family.

I chose to do a “fresh sew” and selected a newer release from The Simple Life Pattern Company to showcase. This is the modest scoop back girls’ Adelyn dress without ties.

The Adelyn has tank, flutter, short, and long sleeve options and features a lined bodice. You can use either the circle skirt (soooo quick to cut and sew) or a gathered skirt to complete the look. There is a modest back scoop (pictured) or a deep scoop with optional ties to complete the look.  I love that it is a quick sew with stunning results. My short sleeved Adelyn took 1 hour and 30 minutes from cut to finish including hemming the circle skirt.

My middle daughter left for an afternoon and when she came home and saw it hanging on my child dress form, she looked expectantly and asked if it was hers. Middle Miss literally gasped when I said it was. She is almost 8, but still wants a breathtaking twirl or two. Wouldn’t you in this striking dress?

I had some of the Desert Bloom Blue Stripe left over, so I wanted to put this pattern to the test since my friend Katie from Simple Life Pattern Company was whipping Adelyn tank dresses out quickly for her girls. I chose to do a simple tank peplum style for my Big Miss. Check it out paired with her Emilya’s Skinny Pants.

Since my serger is in a different room than where I usually sew, I love that the Adelyn tank is fully-lined with a quick burrito-roll finish so in the end I only have one seam to serge after I’ve attached the skirt! I put together Big Miss’s Adelyn peplum tank top in 45 minutes from cut to fully-hemmed.

    […] My Middle Miss is wearing one of my favorite knit patterns of all time: The SLPco Adelyn, this time made as a peplum top with circle skirt. I also made her the basic Elle’s Knit Shorts from SLPco to wear underneath and provide a pop of red under her skirt. (Hint: Join the SLPco Fan Group for a code to get Angie’s Shirred Top and Elle’s Knit Shorts for FREE!) You can see another Adelyn I’ve made with more details on the pattern here. […]
