Make it Monday- With Maya Road!

Hi Gang! I've been quite the blog slacker.  It's Summer I am sorry ;)  I am stopping in to share two projects made for Maya Road.  Both sewing projects!  Details below.  

Sewing with Wood Buttons

Jen Chesnick- Maya Road- Rayann Dress1
Hi Roadies! Jen Chesnick here today with my first post since re-joining the Maya Road team.  This time around you are going to see a lot of sewing projects from me using buttons, trims and other goodies.  Today I have a dress featuring thelarge Handmade with Love wood buttons

The dress pattern is by Simple Life Pattern Co.  It's called the Rayann and is made with no closures.  Meaning no zipper or working buttons on the back.  On the front however there is a band for placement of snaps or buttons.

I used snaps for my band to cinch in the waist then sewed the buttons on over the snaps! The great thing about doing this is my daughter can snap her dress up herself AND I didn't have to sew any button holes.  Hooray!

Too Cute Ruche Shorts and Candy Dot Trim

Hi Roadies! Jen back again with another sewing project featuring Candy Dots Bias Tape  in Punch.  I picked up this short and top pattern combo last month for a steal!  The shorts are called Too Cute Ruche Shorts by Cole's Creations and are so quick and easy.  Truly a great beginner pattern and a good way to use some of that pretty trim you've been hoarding.

The top pattern is also by Cole's Creation and is called the Too Cute Bias Tank.  I used Laguna knit by Robert Kaufman and used the same  trim for the bindings.  This tank is a great canvas for applique designs or heat transfer material.
