Beginner Sewing Patterns and Beginner Sewers!

I have received such the sweetest emails in the past two days and I just want to share them with you not for the reason to make SewSensible sound good but hopefully to inspire Moms or Aunts or GrandMoms who have been wanting to sew but just fear patterns and directions! I really hope these three emails inspire you to at least try!!

The first one is from the beautiful picture above!! This awesome Mommy used SewSensible FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and she is a BEGINNER!! How awesome is that!! Here is what she said, "I just want to say thank you for making such easy and adorable patterns. I have already purchased the Faith Dress top, Boutique Bottoms and Boutique Dress top. I LOVE them!!! Your directions truly ARE easy to follow. The Faith Dress top was the very first thing that I have ever made, and I made two of them in two days (that was because my job gets in the way of my sewing :( . I made them for my girls and wanted to show you my youngest showing off hers. They love them just as much as I do and I can't wait to try out the other patterns. Keep up the good work!!! Thanks again, J"

Here is the second one I received: "I have been perusing your lovely patterns for some time and can contain myself no longer-- I must try one. I must say that I am excited to find clothes created by another Christian mom that make little girls look like the beautiful, feminine creatures God made them to be rather than miniature pop starlets. This dress (Simple Sunday Dress) is lovely and carefree, just like my daughters, and I can't wait to make it for them. K"

And here is the third one I received last night: "Hi Aimee :) I just want to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoy your patterns. I am making the Pleated Dress Top models for my local quilt shop. They are outstanding directions! I'll surprise the shop owner when I bring in the matching Boutique Bottoms..... I'm making some for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter at the same time. She's going to love them. I've been sewing since I could pick up a needle. I've been writing quilt patterns for 15 years and testing other patterns for longer than that. Your's are wonderful and I'll pass the word. Thanks again, T"

Ok!!!!! first wow! Yes I feel so blessed and happy! Now!! are you inspired to sew!!?! C'mon, what are you waiting for!! If you have never sewn and are a little intimidated by it all then please email me and the first 10 I will send you SewSensible Boutique Bottoms for you to try! Now you need your sewing machine manual if you do not even know how to thread your machine or just basics of straight stitch and zig zag stitch which are super easy!! Go ahead and give it a try!! (smile smile) And thank you wonderful Moms and GrandMom for sending me these kind kind words!!!!! I told my husband all about them on the way to church this morning! :)

Have a blessed day today!

I'm not seeing a link to email you. I've been eyeing your patterns for a sweet forever but haven't purchased b/c I'm afraid it will be hard to understand. Sounds like I need to just do it already.

I LOVE that dress top. Is that the Faith double layer? This is the next pattern on my list as soon as my hubby unfreezes my sewing fund. =)

Amanda said...

Oops! Just re-read it. I somehow missed that the first time through. I get that way when I get excited about something... sorry! =-P

if I do not respond back to you in 24 hours then please come leave another comment because that means that email did not work but it should!
In Christ, Aimee'

Yes, Amanda, it's FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and it really is easy and comes out so cute!! (I know I am biased :)

I would love to try out your patterns. I have several of them in my wish list on ycmt but i have yet to take the plunge and buy one. I tried to make my daughter an outfit when she was an infant but I failed badly and I have not tried again. My email is angeleyes_012athotmaildotcom. Thanks so much again!

I literally just got my sewing machine in the mail...and as I was unpacking it...I thought to myself: "why did you do this? you have never sewn a thing in your life!" But I have to kids and a bunch of pregnant it's time to learn. Thanks for the inspiration!

Jen said...

Love your patterns! They always look great on my kids!
