Sewing Patterns for Girls size 7-16 and New Boys Pants Pattern!

Ok, I have finally started on enlarging my patterns!! WoooHoo! I have drawn out a girls size 7-16 Boutique Bottoms. I have test sewn two, made some adjustments and will sew another one soon. I have to say smaller girls are so much easier! As you know, as the girls get older they start having more curves and different heights and weights! Alot tougher to design for than smaller girls! I will definitely be looking for some testers for this pattern. I would like to test each size so if you have a daughter or Grand daughter that is a size 7/8, 10/12, or 14/16, please let me know if you would like to test the pattern! They are very similar to my Boutique Bottoms but for these older sizes I have eliminated the ruffle. I did make one with the ruffle but it did look a little too young on a 12 year old. However, I think when I enlarge my Dress Top that a ruffle pant would look cute coupled with the Dress Top. The pattern will be a capri length.

And I am also making a Boys Pant Pattern thanks to my friend, Melanie! She is definitely the inspiration to these pants! Thanks, Melanie! This pattern will be for Boys size 6m-6 years.

Embroidery Designs: I will also be adding a new item to SewSensible: Embroidery Designs! I am excited about this. I have several designs ready but they are not for sale yet. However, if you have one of my patterns and an embroidery machine and you would like to add one of my designs to an outfit you made from one of SewSensible patterns, please let me know and I will send them to you. Right now, I have several that have been tested and look cute: the Boy and Girl Pocket Pal Frog and Lizard. The Girl Pocket Pal Frog has a bow on the Frog's head and a small bracelet on one arm. The Girl Pocket Pal Lizard has a bow on her tail and a bracelet on her arm as well. The idea came from my children who love frogs and lizards. I really can't believe we actually have them still around the house because they always are catching them..... our boys and our girls as well! The pictures are above but I have taken off the highlights. Let me know if you would like to put them on an outfit! Below are the tested designs.

I love your patterns! I recently made your fait double layer top for my youngets. I turned out so cute!
My oldest, who is 10 wondered when I would make something for her! She wears a 10/12, sometimes a 14/16, so if you need another tester for these sizes, I would love to do that!
