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.
