Hi! I had the chance to join the Ellie Inspired Holiday Tour, so here I am! You already know how much I love to find new patterns and pattern designers and although Ellie Inspired is in the pattern market since 2010 and has over 100 (!) patterns to choose from I haven't had the chance to sew up one of their patterns before. If you like classic and timeless pattern designs you have to check Ellie Inspired's patterns.
The Sugar Plum Sweater dress pattern, pattern by Ellie Inspired.
Two different double-knits.
I usually don't make things for my kids in these greyish-black darker colors but honestly it was the only knit I had with a holiday feel. :) (And it is very very hard to find good knit prints around... They are mostly color blocked...)
This pattern comes in sizes 1-16! It is a super simple sweater or dress pattern with a few options: short or long sleeve and a crew neck or a turtle neck.
I have to say I almost never sew t-shirts or sweaters for my kids without adding some pizzazz. Either it is a ruffle collar, a kanguru pocket, elbow patches, or simply by using two different knit prints or playing with some color blocking... In this case I have add a kanguru pocket and bow straps as a closure at the back - they are both not in the pattern options. I love the result! I want a sweater just like this to myself...
This is a beginner friendly pattern so if you want to try a simple project with knits this is it.
Ellie Inspired Clothes is offering a discount of 25% off all your cart with the code PARTY valid through Friday (Nov 14th). I already have a few patterns in mind I want to try... (Like the Sweet Pea Coat - how lovely is that?)
