Mix & Match ... re-mix ...

I just received this picture from my customer, Maria.  She used the Classy Cowlneck Bodice and the Basic Tee Bottom ... both from the Mix & Match series.

To get this look for yourself you'll need to use the front piece for both the front and the back so you have the WIDE neckline from the cowlneck on both sides.  She made hers without sleeves, but you could add Classic Sleeves if you desired.

To get the look of the slim pencil skirt portion of the dress you'll need to lengthen the hip length tee to your desired length (shown below in RED).

Triple Ruffle T-Shirt Dress ... hip-length measurement guide

I was recently asked the question on what the side seam of the shirt you are using for the Triple Ruffle T-Shirt should be.  Obviously the side seams are going to vary when you are using a pre-made store bought shirt.

The following measurements can be used as a guide for the length of a hip-length t-shirt.

The following measurements are in inches.  Length is measured along the side seam, from the armpit to the hem. Sizes are only guides and are based on average measurements.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions.

You can purchase the Triple Ruffle T-Shirt pdf sewing pattern HERE

Winner of Share and Win

Congratulations to Lauren, her comment was number 11 on the Share and Win post.

the Happy Herringbone Dress

A super cute halter dress featuring an empire bodice with an elastic back and a pieced herringbone style skirt.  Bodice is fully lined for comfort.

Two length options: tunic or dress.

It's fun to mix and match prints and colors.  Perfect for coordinating fabrics or even using up scraps and fat quarters.

Skill Level:  Intermediate.  Definitely not for beginners, but easier than you might think.  The results are worth the extra effort.

16 sizes included:  nb-16, and including the doll size.
Quick, what are you waiting for?  You can purchase it HERE, or in any of our BUNDLE PACKS for more savings.

NEW pattern release ...

I'm actively editing a new pattern.  It is a woven dress and SUPER duper cute!  I'll admit it is definitely categorized as intermediate (NOT beginner) ... but oh my word is it worth the extra effort.

It will be released on Friday, July 7th ... I can't wait to share it with you.  

Sneak peek of my fabric choice above ... this dress was worthy to be cut in Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow coordinates ... LOVE!
