Make it Monday - Corduroy all over this place!


Hey y'all! it's supposed to be fall, but who knows what Maryland is going to do.  When I shot these photos last week it was 92 degrees ha!  Anyhow.  I picked up some corduroy at Hobby Lobby and I set out to make an outfit that wasn't a dress.  I used the Tilly pattern to go over a shirt.  I made it one size larger so she would have room to grow and wear a long sleeve without issue. 



I fully closed the back of the Tilly and I used some Studio Calico buttons to close it off. For the pants I used a new to me pattern the Lola Bells by Brownie Goose.  They are super duper wide! for my chunk butt I used a size 5 with a 4 length.  I think the next paid I am going to make a 6 instead.  She has SERIOUS junk in her trunk.



Patterns, Tilly & Lola Bells by Brownie Goose
Interfacing (light) by Thermoweb
Cord fabric by Hobby Lobby (no clue the designer)
Button Studio Calico

Michael Miller Out to Sea by Sarah Jane and Thermoweb



Anybody got a Gap contract for this kid?! I mean REALLY.  Honestly I cannot take all the credit for that pose.  Her dad was making funnies behind me and promising lollipops. So Michael Miller Fabrics, Out to Sea by Sarah Jane.  Check this collection out!  I wish it was still Summer, but I went ahead and made this Lazy Susan a whole size up for next year.  I used Thermoweb Heat N Bond interfacing (medium this time!) because I used an all white bodice the interfacing helped conceal any see through PLUS beef up the bodice and help stabilize for my buttons.  Which happen to be my favorite part. I added a large 3.5" broadcloth band around the bottom as an after thought.  It added some length that I thought it needed! 








Supplies:

MMF- Out to Sea
Pattern- Brownie Goose, Lazy Susan
Thermoweb Interfacing- Heat N Bond Medium
Gutermann Thread- white and pink
Buttons- Hobby Lobby
Broadcloth- Hobby Lobby

Love, actually with Basic Grey and Thermoweb


Heyyyyyyy! Thermoweb has teamed up with Basic Grey!  I used Grand Bazzar and I gotta tell ya, I love this line!  I think it's the raspberry color.  I am really not sure.  But I like it!  I made two layouts and a whole bunch of bits and things.  Stop by the Tow Blog for all the details and win

Make it Monday with Bella Blvd Snapshots Fabric


It's Monday! A little late, but I am here with another sewing project.  This time using Bella Blvd's Snapshots fabric by Riley Blake.  My favorite line by Bella is now a fabric!!  Parker picked out the patterns she wanted and I sewed them into a modified Lazy Susan by Brownie Goose. If you have read a couple of the other Lazy Susan posts you will noticed I omitted the ruffle sleeves and I used the tunic bodice which is shorter and kept the skirt, skirt length.  She wore this to daycare today as a matter of fact! 




You can pick up the fabric at Fabric.com which is where I shop a lot! free shipping over $35!
