Amid the frantic “Easter sewing”, we managed to squeeze in an outfit for EA . . .and join a “Pattern Tour” in the process!
When the Antalya was released, we immediately fell in love with the lines of this pattern.
They were . . .intriguing. And different . . . than much of what is seen in children’s patterns.
Olga, of Coffee and Thread, generously gave us this pattern – for another project. But, that didn’t turn out quite as we envisioned it, so we HAD to have a “do-over”.
When in doubt? Add liberty to it!! Or, at least have a few liberty accents!!
It’s a fail-proof plan . . . We bought some liberty bias HERE and have been so pleased with being able to add a touch of liberty, without the steep price tag of using it as the main fabric of an outfit.
We sewed a size 6 in the Antalya, and as you can see – EA has ample growing room. It’s actually a “quick sew” . . . especially if you are looking for “little input”, but “cute output.”
Once the Easter sewing subsides, we hope to sew the Ania – another Coffee and Thread pattern – as a dress. Many of the ladies on the tour did just that . . . and, have given us loads of inspiration to work with . . .
We have an idea for one that, once again, includes liberty accents!
While we are near the end of the “tour,” there are some absolutely phenomenal creations showcased on these blogs!! And the photography . . . swoooooooooon! Seriously . . .go check them out. We can barely keep up with all of their goodness!!
Also, Olga is offering 20% on all of her patterns – using the discount code, Coffeeandthreadtour – through the end of the tour.
And, FINALLY!! There is a GIVEAWAY!! A good one . . .so, enter below:
