I am so excited to be part of this tour! When Laura, the talented lady behind Craftstorming and titchythreads sewing patterns, asked me to try out her latest pattern for skinny jeans I was so in. My girls always need pants, and honestly I never take the time to sew them any, other then leggings :)
It also did not hurt that there are some pretty talented ladies listed on tour as well...look at this lineup!
So I went, full force into this pattern and Oh my! I MADE JEANS!! Like REAL JEANS!....so excited!
I got all excited when I started, sat down with my pattern printed, coffee in hand, and a full two hour nap time to knock these out....I was wrong....( it ended up taking 3 naps). There are a lot of pieces to cut, and to keep track off, but once you get going they go together beautifully. They look so great BECAUSE of all the little pieces, and all the little details.
I made this first pair from a med weight dark wash stretch denim. I sewed them as is, full zip. I love them! especially the pockets ( I just sewed on grosgrain ribbons in various pinks)
Once I was done, I wanted to make more...they do become slightly addicting...maybe that was just me. I made both my girls a pair from a really soft stretch sateen floral, perfect for girly girls like mine.
These ones went much faster, about half the time
They fit great, they are comfortable and she loves them, which is the best part of all
My youngest I made the false fly and changed the waistband to entirely elastic, just to make it easier to dress my squirmy toddler
Paired with a soft flowy chiffon tee (self drafted) - it`s the perfect spring outfit for this never ending winter :)
Now go get yourself a copy and make some Jeans!! You can do it!
AND until March 15th Laura has generously offered a discount, you can get 20% off with the code TOUR20 in her shop.
yay - thanks Laura

You asked and asked, and we are finally finished! The New and Updated Chic Cocktail Swing Coat!
We redesigned the coat pattern which now has sizing from 12m thru to 12years. More specific sizing (12m, 18m, 2t, 3t....etc,) mean a better fit for your little one.
This version will now include, along with the collar, a hood option. The hood also has optional bunny or mouse ears! You can choose either the bowtie or button closure. Tons of options and variations on this one :)
Perfect for Spring and Easter
To celebrate this total revamp of the original pattern we are going to be offering the chic cocktail swing coat pattern on SALE for ONE WEEK only!
You can get your copy starting today in our craftsy shop for only $4.50!!!
The coat will only be available in our craftsy shop at the sale price for one week. After that, it will be available at our regular price of $7.95 each and a bundle price of $10.95 for both size ranges in both our etsy and craftsy shops.
Because this pattern has been completely redone, we are NOT offering a free upgrade to those who have previously purchased it. We are offering this RARE new release sale price as our thank you for your support. Thanks for your understanding. :)
Now go get your copy!
