Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Bundle Up! And, so excited that these patterns are for boys! Yay sewing for boys!
Check out all the awesome patterns for this bundle. I have to say it is a pretty incredible collection! And I hope to be able to make a purchase soon. Better hurry though, it ends the 29th! That is in 2 days! Then the patterns can be purchased through the designer at regular price.
The two patterns I sewed up for the tour are the Letterman Jacket by Fairytale Pattern Designs and the Butler Britches by Brownie Goose.
The Letterman Jacket by Fairytale Pattern Design
Fabric: I used a red suiting bottomweight for the body and a blue bottom weight from the "jean" section at Joann's. The lining is flannel. I used an interlock for the neck binding, cuffs and waistband.
Modifications: The lining is not in the original pattern. I used the pattern pieces and modified to the bodice front pieces to incorporate the facing as a panel. I quilted the bodice flannel pieces over cotton batting to add in an extra warmth layer. The sleeves are not quilting, just lining and shell fabrics.
Because I used the lining (and Little man was extremely upset when I put the shell on him to try because he couldn't see the pictures) we also made this jacket reversible! All seams are hidden.
Embelishments: I traced the Spiderman Logo on freezer paper. I used the same image for both, just resized when printing.
Butler Britches by Brownie Goose
Fabric: I used the same blue bottomweight and flannel from the jacket.
Modifications: I used the flat front waistband option but did an adjustable elastic by creating my own buttonhole elastic.
Embelishments: I did not add any of my own. I had a hard time matching the button color and little man wanted a brown button... So brown it was.
The patterns were relatively quick to sew and so much fun! Directions were clear and easy to follow. :)
There are only 2 more days for the sale! Head over to Bundle Up! :)
