Maeve Jumper - PDF Sewing Pattern

I'm excited to share my latest PDF sewing pattern, the Maeve Jumper! I created this jumper for my daugther this past summer and here are a few examples of what I've made using this pattern..

Sailboat Jumper
Nani Iro Jumper
Liberty of London Jumper

And of course, the one pictured below is with fabric by Cotton and Steel. This super sweet jumper is perfect for your little lady. Bodice is lined and adorned with three buttons. Can be worn as a summer dress or layered in the cooler months with a tee and leggings. Available in sizes 18-24, 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T.

Happy sewing! and as always, I'd love to see your creations!

Kat's Custom Dress

I've had the opportunity to work one-on-one with a few brides this year. The experience reminds me so much of making my own wedding dress with my mom and it feels refreshing to be a part of that process with other people. 

Kat came to me with a vision of pink for her wedding day and a touch of sparkle! We went with a very subtle silk pink fabric for her strapless "Belle" dress and paired it with a netted, sparkly, off the shoulder-type cardigan. The combo was gorgeous. She also asked me to make a sweet flower dress for her daughter -- which we did from a peach cotton fabric that featured a peter pan collar. Perfection!

So excited to see the Lucille dress on the cover of Smitten Magazine! A great team of wedding creatives put together this boho shoot that featured two of my dresses. It's so fun as a designer to send off your things and see what photo magic comes back! Be sure to check it out and all of the other pretty things happening in this issue!

Mercer Tunic - PDF Pattern

Okay friends! I've made the leap and I'm excited to share with you my first downloadable PDF pattern! It's available in sizes XS-L and has a loose fit allowing some flexibility in the sizing department. There are step-by-step directions in the PDF with photos to follow along with.

This whole process was a labor of love! Going from initial design to patternmaking/testing, then to actually writing out the directions -- whoa. But definitely enjoyable!

Description: A lovely loose-fitting tunic that is comfortable and chic.  It features a gathered front and back yoke, simple button-up front placket, and hits slightly off the shoulder. Can be dressed up or down depending on fabric selection and accented with a tie or belt.
