Next Physical Pattern Available: Faith Double Layer Dress Top, Double Layer Skirt, Boutique Capris

I am happy to say that my next physical pattern is available! I have made some additional changes to what I am adding to the physical patterns but the pattern is not changed. Here is Faith Double Layer Dress Top which also makes a cute Double Layer Skirt. The new addition to this physical pattern is a pair of Boutique Capris. The Boutique Capris are exactly the same as my Boutique Bottoms. If you are a boutique/fabric/quilt shop and would like to sell SewSensible Boutique Sewing Patterns please see the list of distributors on right side bar.

Designed with the beginner in mind! You will fall in love with these sewing patterns! Each are designed to be very easy to sew, but still give it that “boutique” look. You will be amazed at how simple they are! FAITH is a double layer dress top where the straps criss cross in the back giving it a beautiful feminine look! It looks great for special occasions when paired with the Boutique Capris or Double Layer Skirt! The Boutique Capris have a ruffle or band option and also makes a great pair of pajamas. Great for the beginner to the advanced sewer! Easy to follow step-by-step instructions along with lots of graphics to guide you through each step! It is also simple enough to sew for a quick gift for your niece or granddaughter!

Faith Double Layer Dress Top, Double Layer Skirt, Boutique Capris!

I have been working on the next physical pattern changes. If you recall I added the Hope Joy Bubble Top to the physical Twirl Skort sewing pattern last month. The two together make a cute outfit! The one above is Faith Double Layer Dress Top in its orginal design and I am adding the Boutique Bottoms (capri length) and renaming it Boutique Capris for this physical pattern. I know maybe a little confusing but after I have all the new covers and pattern additions and changes this year it will not be so confusing :) Along with this pattern is a double layer skirt which is the Faith Double Layer dress top minus the straps and loops. These two patterns are probably the EASIEST for beginners to sew as far as SewSensible customers have commented in the past 4 years. Above will be the new cover. The next pattern I am changing and adding to will be the Reversible Pleated Dress Top with Boutique Shorts. If you are a boutique fabric/pattern/quilt shop and would like to carry SewSensible Boutique Sewing Patterns (the physical versions) please see list of Distributors.

Redesign Hope Joy Bubble Top and Twirl SKORT sewing pattern!


I am very happy to say my re-design/update to the Twirl SKORT is available in physical version. Last year I decided to design a new logo and update all my physical patterns with a new cover. I sold out of the Twirl SKORT so that is why this is the first one available. The pattern is not changed. The update is an additional pattern to the physical version. The Twirl SKORT is now the Hope Joy Bubble Top/Twirl SKORT physical sewing pattern stock number #455P. If you are a quilt/fabric/pattern shop and would like to carry SewSensible patterns in your shop please let me know or contact one of the Distributors on the right side bar.

I am currently out of stock of FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and towards the end of the box of the Reversible Pleated Dress Top for physical versions. I hope to have FAITH Double Layer Dress Top/Double Layer Skirt with flower accessories available by April along with the Reversible Pleated Dress Top/Boutique Shorts available in April. Trying to get them done before Spring Market!

Also, if you have made something with a SewSensible pattern I would love to post on my blog. It not only blesses me but inspires other Moms, GrandMoms, Aunts, and our daughters :) to sew!! Please feel free to email them to me at sewsensible @ cox . net

Sewing Patterns for Beginners and New Covers!

I am busy working on many projects! For 2011, I have been working on all new covers for all my physical patterns along with adding something more to the patterns. Here is the first look at one pattern that will get something extra! For the Twirl SKORT physical sewing pattern I will be adding the HOPE JOY Bubble Top! I am excited about this because now when you purchase the physical pattern you will be able to make a complete outfit or just the Bubble Top by itself to go along with a pair of cute jeans or make just the Twirl SKORT to go along with a cute pair of boots and solid tee! Whatever you choose to make I am sure your little one will be cute in Mommy's creations!! I have redrawn the pattern to add the HOPE JOY Bubble Top and will be sending that to McCall's next week. I just need to double check everything before I send it off. I am almost finished with the directions except for the fabric requirements and little things like that.

For my next project I have been working on the Embellished PillowCase Dress! It is a simple pillowcase dress with three options of ruffles. I work very hard at making the directions as detailed as possible for all you beginner sew-ers! This is what takes me so long but I so enjoy the finished work when complete! I have the Embellished Pillowcase Dress pattern already drawn out and am three quarters of the way through with the directions and graphics. As most of you know, you can easily google a pillowcase dress and get the basics of how to sew one of these very poplular dresses. My goal with doing this dress, and I thought about it for a long time, was to offer a more simpler way of doing a couple of the steps. I believe you will like the outcome.

For the next project, I have cut out the cover outfits for the new FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and it will have a double layer skirt added to it. Something fun and very easy!

The next project are my aprons. I have corrected a few pattern dimensions but other than that I hope to have this one available as a download in February.

The last project until I get all these finished is to complete the Reversible Pleated Dress Top cover. I am adding some Boutique Shorts with this physical pattern with options of ruffle or band to the shorts.

Now you know what I have been doing!! I seem so scattered at times with so many projects but it is all coming together as it should.
