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

Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern
(comes in downloadable version or physical version)

How cute!!!!! Ok, once you read this below I hope and pray this inspires others who are "sitting" on some patterns because they are a little scared to try to go ahead and try :)!!!!! M!! you are awesome! I think I am more excited you finally took out that pattern and tried it! The picture is so cute and your girls are adorable! Thanks so much for sharing!

"Aimee, I just can't thank you enough for your patterns. I have been terrified to make pants Since my high school days, which has been a LONG time ago. I tried sewing in high school and tried to make shorts which were quite hysterical and I just gave up. Well many years and 3 girls later, I started to teach myself to sew again, making simple dresses etc. Well this Easter I decided it was time to try pants. Mind you I have had your pattern for a couple of years now, but always too scared. Well to my surprise It was so easy and I made 3 of them. My girls just love their mommy creations and are already asking for more especially my 8 yo. What a blessing to have my 8yo want me to make more. Thank you for all you do. Now I need to try some of the tops!!!! Hope you enjoy the picture of my girls with the easter bunny. Bless you and your family, M"

Yesterday was her party and we got lots of compliments on her outfit. Thanks, J"

Apron Sewing Patterns and Hostess Apron!

I don't know how many of you remember me working on some apron patterns last year but I am back on it! I thought I would have them ready for this past Christmas and I even have all the tester photos but Christmas just came so fast that I decided I would do it this year and hopefully ;) be ready for this Christmas!! Above is a hostess apron. This pattern is both a hostess apron and a bib apron. I hope to make the bib apron next week. The other pattern is my first Women's Dress Top that I never made into a pattern but took the design and made into a reversible halter apron. Anyway, this is one of the projects I am working on right now. I am waiting for the fabric that I will use for Mod Girl to come in and will start drawing up the directions this week!

Hope all of you have a great day today!! The weather here in Louisiana has been great (77 degrees)! I grilled ribs and chicken on the bbq pit yesterday after school while the children played around the backyard. The long days are a favorite of mine!!

Boutique Dress Top and Boutique Bottoms sewing patterns and GrandMother's Custom Outfits!

SewSensible Boutique Dress Top and Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern!
Comes as both a downloadable and a physical. Please see list of boutiques on the right side bar that sell SewSensible Boutique Physical Sewing Patterns

I was blessed yesterday again by an email from a wonderful GrandMother who made all her Grandbaby girls their Easter Outfits! I just know how she was feeling Easter day when she was surrounded by all these beautiful children! I know her heart was FULL of joy not only to have them all together but to see a piece of her covering them!

Here is what she said, "Hello Aimee, Thank you so much for what you do. I know you have your hands full. I have purchased two of your patterns so far, boutique top & bottoms. I will be making another purchase soon. I am an advance sewer but appreciate the simplicity of your patterns because they look like I spent a lot of time. Here is a couple of pictures of my 5 granddaughters and myself from Easter. I also sewed one for a friends daughter. I have three grandsons I included their pictures so they don't feel left out. No one wanted to pose of course they were interested in hunting eggs. (you know how that goes). Thanks again and May God continue to bless you and your family. D"

Ok I have to admit that when I saw "and myself" I was like WHAT I don't see a grandmother in that picture!! The older I get (and I am only 40!) the more "grandmothers" look so young!!!!! Oh wait!! I am a grandmother too! (a young pretty lookin grandmother too!!) HA!!

LOVE the pictures, LOVE the outfits!!!!! Thanks, D, for sharing! I know this will inspire other Moms, GrandMoms, and Aunts to sew!! I know it inspired me!! And I also know about trying to get children to pose!! Can be frustrating sometimes but sometimes those are the best pictures!! :) And you are beautiful!

Happy Girl Dress short-gathered version

"Hi Aimee! I finally had a little time to make a second dress for my little girl. She really loves it and I am so pleased with the way it turned out. You made it so easy with you pattern. Everyone is impressed with the pleats and I love those covered buttons! Definitely will be making another one for her. You know, I have been sewing since I was six years old and I never thought I would be making dresses for my girls. My mother is a master seamstress, but I had a bad experience in home ec in school which cured me from wanting to make clothing of any type (that is so sad). Now I have a lot of confidence and I just enjoy the process immensely!"

You know, I get many emails with all kinds of sweet words about your sewing experience and just like the email above how you now love to sew for your loved ones! Recently I received an email from a kind woman who had 50 years of sewing experience and she wanted to tell me how my patterns were not for beginners and how my graphics were hard to understand and how outrageous my prices are. At first I read her email and it was a big hit in the gut to say the least. Before I answered her though I prayed and responded with love and respect for her experience with my patterns. I will say that I never got into this as a big money making endeavor. Yes the money helps but the biggest reward are emails like the one above and the many others that I receive from Mom's who are sewing again or just started sewing and are loving it! My patterns are not typical. I will surely admit that :) They do not use standard sewing terminology and my graphics depict to the best of my ability a visual for almost every step. Based on several years of feedback, first time sew-ers appreciate my directions. I say all this because I realize I can never please everyone as much as I would love too. About the price, I believe anyone who uses independent pattern designer patterns knows I am very comparable to what is available out there. My prayer is that you have a very enjoyable sewing experience with my patterns and if you run into a problem or question while you are sewing I am just an email away! My goal is to get you to just get in front of the sewing machine and feel comfortable and excited about sewing and then you can move on to bigger and better sewing patterns!

I do appreciate every comment and email so please keep them coming along with your awesome Mommy, GrandMommy, and Aunt creations!!
Also, if you are an instructor and are planning to have a classs with SewSensible boutique patterns, my suggestion is please sew an outfit first before teaching the classs that way you will become familiar with my pattern and directions and if you run into a problem or question I can answer it before class day.
In Christ, Aimee'

Mod Girl sewing pattern and Easter outfits!

Waited until the last minute to sew up the girls' Easter outfits! Per request, I sewed a Happy Girl Dress, Mod Girl top matched with some Boutique Bottoms and another pair of Boutique Bottoms. Mod Girl will be ready as a downloadable by next month! I tried it with a heavier ruffle and I think it turned out cute :)

May each of you have a wonderfully blessed Easter! I could not stop thinking about Jesus dying for me and you on that cross! Just a powerful truth! Love y'all!!

In Christ, Aimee'
