Unisex sewing patterns that you’ll love

Last year Pattern Anthology was born when 4 friends, who happen to design sewing patterns, decided it would be fun to collaborate. So we worked tirelessly on the first collection. We had so much fun collaborating that we decided to do a second collection. This time it is a completely unisex, four piece collection for […]

The Best, Easy Knit Maxi Skirt Tutorial

OK, there may be other great ways to make a maxi skirt but I think this is the most flattering and easiest. It doesn’t gather too much fabric at your waist or hips and gives you a nice flowy look without weighing you down. I wrote out a quick tutorial to show you how to draft if for your own measurements. I think even a beginner could do this. Knit fabric can be a bit tricky to work with so if you’re a beginner look for something that doesn’t roll on the edges when cut. Other than that, I think you can do this!

Skater Dress Tour

One really fun part of the online sewing community is getting the chance to sew up other people’s patterns and tell you about them. It’s no surprise to anyone that I love to sew knit dresses. My friend, Amanda, recently came out with a great knit dress pattern. I love the shape. Easy wear bodice and a fun skirt that can twirl. I was am so happy to be joining the pattern tour! I give you The Skater Dress.

the Anywhere Dress (SALE ALERT)

My most recent sewing pattern was born from my desire to make a dress that was QUICK, no fuss and easy for beginners. The Anywhere Dress pattern for girls fits that bill. No gathers, ribbing, stretching or elastic. No zippers, buttons or extra pieces. This is just a simple, knit dress for girls with four sleeve options to suit every seasonal need.

Make It Wear It Thursday

Tuesday I shared a couple Boardwalk Skirts. I forgot to share this one. It is pretty much my favorite thing ever.

Boardwalk Skirt

I’m continuing my tour through the Sun & Surf Collection. Sunday I showed off four of the Beachy Boatneck shirts I made for my son and daughter. Monday I highlighted a few of the Carousel Tops I made for my daughters. I think I forgot to mention that the pattern goes up to size 12 yrs. Today I’m showing off a couple Boardwalk Skirts I made. The Boardwalk Skirt has a wide range of sizes from 6 mo—14 yrs.

Carousel Top

When I design a pattern I get so nervous to hear what people think. That's how I feel about the Carousel Top. I'm not sure why but I've been nervous about this pattern. Thankfully the reviews have been great so far! I thought I'd share a few of the Carousel Tops I've made. I love […]

The day I made 3 Beachy Boatneck shirts in under 2 hours (plus 2 more)

Last week I started sewing up some of the patterns from the Sun & Surf Collection. I started with the Beachy Boatneck. After making one for my middle daughter (I’ll share later in the week) I decided to make a handful for my son. I cut three out and once they were cut they only took me an hour and a half to sew all three. And that was with little distractions here and there. Pretty sure this one of my favorite patterns.
