I was really love One Thimble Magazine. So I was gobsmacked when a call for a blog tour came out and I got to apply for it and I was accepted to create a post. I feel like One Thimble does a great job getting designers that create designs that work for my little Sweet Pea.
There are so many great designers this round:
And includes hacks from patterns by these designers:
I opted to start out with the Oceaan Shorts from The Eli Monster because I had lots of successs with the Neuix Tunic and Reizen pants (and Sweet Pea really wanted a new pair of shorts), you can see my notes on those patterns here–> Sew Fab Blog Tour. Sweet Pea settled on this lovely fabric from Cosmic Fabric Creations.
And off I went. As usual, the instructions have been amazing and we really love the button deals.
It was 6° outside so we had to go for an indoor photo shoot and still needed sweatshirts and tights.
I also got to sign up for the as Gentleman’s Polo which (yes, I made for my sweet girl) from Orange Daisy Patterns. I have never used any of this designer’s patterns and was hoping Sweet Pea would pick the long sleeved version. She opted for the midsleeve length, which is not a length we usually go for but I really like how it comes all the way down to the elbow. The placket construction was slightly different than I was used to but was quite easy to follow. We used the skirt from the Hickory & Spice Henley and colorblocking on the shoulders because Lolli was insistant upon it. The collar fit on the pattern quite nicely and I was quite proud to get nice sharp points, though I realize now after looking at the photos Lolli tucked the collar in so you can’t even see them🤦♀️
I’ll need to update with some more photos in a day or 2 to show off the really lovely collar. I really enjoyed the chance to work on this blog tour, get to discover a new designer and create fun stuff for my daughter to wear!
