Sewing Patterns and Scoop Neck Dress Top with long sleeves!

!!!!! Coming Soon !!!!!

Hello!! Oh I am so missing sewing today especially with all the rain and dark clouds! As most of you know I have three passions that are my life: family, orphans/adoption, and sewing! This past weekend was a long great weekend advocating for some local foster children in our community. You can read more here. We hosted our second Foster Care Match Party on Saturday with 19 children that are available for adoption come and meet families who are interested in adopting. Six of these children were matched with a family!! WoooooHoooo!! Then on Sunday morning and afternoon we had a Heart Gallery display for all HPC services which brings much awareness about children in the foster care system in our communities that have no Mom or Dad. We give many ways that we the people can be a part of these children's lives. Then Sunday night we had our first Round Table Discussion with the topic being older child adoption and transracial adoption. All was great! This week I have been winding down and looking forward to finishing the revisions for the Scoop Neck Dress Top! I hope to have the revisions done by this weekend and send to the testers again!

I pray all is well with you guys and don't forget you can follow me on Twitter (see top right corner of this blog). That has been such a fun way to connect with you and other sewing / crafting women!

MY WEBSITE: I am working on adding the physical patterns to my website. If you would like to purchase wholesale, please see the distributors on the right side bar. If you would just like to purchase the physical pattern for yourself or a gift then I have listed several boutiques that sell my patterns; however, this is not all of them. I do not really know where they all are so if you are a shop and sell SewSensible Patterns please let me know and I will gladly add you to my sidebar!

PHYSICAL PATTERNS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME: At this time I have five of SewSensible patterns as physical patterns: Boutique Dress Top, Boutique Bottoms, Twirl SKORT, FAITH Double Layer Dress Top, and Reversible Pleated Dress Top! All my patterns are designed with the beginner in mind. They are great for a first time sewer!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me and if you have an awesome Mommy, GrandMommy, or Aunt creation you would like to show off, please don't hesitate to send it!!!!! I love them and they inspire others so much!!

Sewing Patterns! and Boutique Bottoms!

I received this wonderful email and just had to share! And, yes, she is so darn cute!! :)

Aimee’, First off let me say that I have almost all of your patterns and I
“heart” them tremendously. I always get TONS of compliments when my daughter wears a mommy made creation from one of your designs. I had to take a quick picture of her this morning before I sent her off to preschool. Mostly because I think she’s so darn cute, but also because I wanted you to know that I whipped up that pair of boutique pants this morning BEFORE I took her to preschool at 9. Yes, this morning. I had the top done, but hadn’t found time to put the pants
together (I usually sew in the evenings after bedtime) because my 5 week old hasn’t been the most cooperative. So this morning I looked at the top, and really wanted her to wear it. I had already made her lunch, and the baby had just drifted off to sleep, and the two older kids were eating breakfast...and I thought...”maybe I’ll have time...”. I got the serger re-threaded by 8:05 and had the pants done by 8:40. Granted, they were already cut out, and I used the ruffler foot, but that’s pretty dang quick! And yes, I topstiched around the shortcuts were taken, all seams were finished. ;) So, thank you for putting together a pattern that’s so stinkin’ easy! The pants ALWAYS turn out great (I’ve made dozens of them) and I can guarantee that when I pick my daughter up from preschool, I’ll have half a dozen mom’s asking when they can place their orders! You ROCK...keep the amazing patterns coming, so that I can look like an amazing seamstress! Sincerely, A

Physical Pattern update
: I received the directions for the Twirl SKORT and Reversible Pleated Dress Top and am waiting on the covers and pattern pieces. They will ship out beginning of this coming week. Creative Smocking is taking pre-orders with free shipping at this time for both of these patterns. About the Scoop Neck Dress Top, I have received my feedback and pictures from the testers and am busy redrawing and adding some revisions. I am half way done with the directions and graphics. I will hopefully be able to send this to the testers again this coming week. I will order my Christmas outfit fabric this weekend because the Scoop Neck Dress Top sewing pattern is definitely the one I will use for my girls' Christmas dresses! So excited! The FAITH has a new simpler design but still giving it the exact same look. I just made an even simpler way to sew it up if it could get any simpler! It is only available on the physical pattern at this time.

Purchasing the Physical Patterns: If you are interested in purchasing SewSensible Children's Boutiqe Sewing Patterns in the physical then you can check out my sidebar with some of the boutique shops that sell them. If you sell them and would like me to list you, please send me an email.

Downloadable Patterns update
: I have not transitioned the new graphics to the downloadable patterns yet. Except for the Reversible Pleated Dress Top, all the downloadable ones still have the original photo and directions. I do plan to transition the new look to downloadable as well in the future. You can still purchase the downloadable patterns at You Can Make This, SewSensible Website, and SewSensible Etsy shop!
