New Sewing Pattern: Reversible Pleated Dress Top Sewing Pattern!

Believe me, I am working as much as I can to get this pattern released! Having to redraw the graphics has really set me back especially since all the children are home all day and begging for my attention 24/7!! There are only 19 steps to this pattern and I have redrawn all up to step 16 so only 3 more steps to redraw!! Yay!! In the meantime, here is another tester's photo! Too cute!! And how beautiful is this little model!!

Women's Reversible Dress Top Sewing Pattern!

Ok! here is my Women's Reversible Dress Top! Well, what do you think? Looks simple and it is!! I need to get some up close shots of the tie and I will not show the back yet! The fit feels great! I just ordered some knit fabric to test on that. So look for more women dress top pictures in the future! And the length can be waist, hip, knee, or ankle! I look forward to making some Mommy and Daughter matching outfits!! Fun Fun!! Fabric: Andalucia by Patty Young!

New Sewing Pattern Reversible Pleated Dress Top!

The Reversible Pleated Dress Top sewing pattern is not quite ready yet but here is one of the tester photos! Ok!! Do you love this! Or could it be that this little girl would make any outfit look cute!! Her little hands look just like the babydoll hands you see on those life size babydolls! so adorable! Her sweet Mom paired this one up with a coordinating pair of Boutique Bottoms too! This pattern should be ready in the next two weeks. It would have been earlier but after the first round of testing I had to go back and change the placement of straps and redraw the top of the bodice. Because I had to redraw the pattern, I will now have to redraw the graphics on the directions which takes time so that is the reason for 14 days! Thanks again to all the testers who did this the first go-round and for you who are doing it the second g0-round!!

I also was able to sew me another dress top for myself !!!!! Hopefully Tommy can take some pictures of me in it today! I am still going to keep the back a secret as long as I can. Maybe I can draw up some different size patterns and get it ready to send out and get some tested on some of you. Leave me a comment if you would like to test it! I will pick the first 10-15 to be fair to you. And if you are a seasoned sewer and are comfortable sewing with silk or any lightweight fabric, I would love this pattern tested with some of those fabrics to make a more date night dress top!!

Finally sewing for me!!

FINALLY sewing something for me!!!!! This started out being the Boutique Dress Top for Women but after I sewed the first one I did not like how the back fit so I got an idea for the back, drew it up and was able to sew it this morning!!!!! I am SEW excited about how this came out! I will cut me another one today and hopefully sew it during naptime! The bottom hem is not sewn yet. I was so excited to try it on that I hurried up and got the children to take pictures of me. The pictures aren't great but they had fun doing it. This was actually taken by my 2yo! I'll have to get Tommy to take some better shots and post those however I will keep the back a secret for now!! Oh, and it is reversible!!!!! Love this!!

New Sewing Pattern and Physical patterns!

Reversible Pleated Dress Top Sewing Pattern update: Testers, I have to tell you that all of you are awesome!! Thanks again for doing this and for those that are still sending emails to help thank you! I do not need anymore testers at this time for this pattern but I am always looking for testers in the future. These comments will help change what I need to change to make this pattern easier to understand and easier to sew! THANK YOU!!!!!

The tester comments are almost all in and no doubt I will have to change the wording on the pleats. This is the most important step for your dress top to sew quickly and easily. I will make those changes this week and I am hoping to have the new release by next week! Above is one tester photo! Look how cute that little girl is! and Mom even made matching Boutique Bottoms! Too cute!

Physical Patterns Update: Also, talked to the press guy and the printing process was delayed until next Monday. Wow! I was on a roll and then patience had to take its place!! So next week looks like a week of new sewing pattern and new physical patterns!

Sewing for me!: Oh, but in the wait at home while the children are running all over playing and trying to keep cool this summer, I did sew me two tops!!!!! It started out as the Women's Boutique Dress Top and on the second one I got the bodice for me right but I am not liking the back on me..... makes me look fat ;) HA!! So I have decided about a different way to do the back! I hopefully will sew another one today!! Fun Fun!!

And I have to say hello to my friend Melanie B.!!!!! So so glad you are back online!!!!! I have thought about you so much and missed you!

FAITH Double Layer Dress Top sewing pattern and Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern!

Look how sweet these awesome Mommy creations are and how cute those sweet little girls look!

Here is what this Mom said, "I have made several of your patterns before and love them. My daughter just loves wearing them and so do her friends. They usually get a matching one for their birthday. Your patterns were the first clothes I ever tried to sew and LOVE them. They are so easy to follow. I love the step by step visual directions. They really make it easy for a first time sewer."

Thanks so much, S!! Love the outfits and the girls look super cute! Now I want to make my girls some zebra boutique bottoms!! Thanks for your kind words as well!

New Sewing Pattern Reversible Pleated Dress Top!

I have been busy working on the directions and graphics of the new sewing pattern: SewSensible Reversible Pleated Dress Top! I am excited about it and I have purchased the fabric that will be used for the cover. I am in need of some pattern testers. I am looking for two testers in each size: 6m-9m, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6. The pattern will just include the reversible pleated dress top and not the shorts as I had talked about before. The only reason is because I just don't have enough room on my direction sheet. However, the Boutique Bottoms pattern can be used. I have a couple more days to get the pattern on a pdf so if you would like to test please know that once you receive the pattern and directions, I am in need of you to test within 3 days of receiving it. Please only respond by making a comment to this post if you are able to do this. Or you can email me at Thanks! In Christ, Aimee'
