Ladies.... Bundle Up!

Ha! So I am very last minute but I wanted to give you the down and dirty on the few items I tested for the Bundle Up collection. So hang on and I will run through them really fast so you still have time to get your shopping in!

First up, Jocole's A-Line Shift dress.

Sizes included:

2 Neckline Options:
Scoopneck and Boatneck options
Pattern includes 4 length options:
tunic, above the knee, at the knee and below the knee length

I love everything Jocole and this quick dress is no exception. This is the perfect dress for a beginner to cut her teeth on some intermediate skills.  The back has a zipper closure and the armholes are bound with bias.  There are bust darts and this is the easiest pattern to learn to mash sizes and get the perfect fit for your shape.  You know I loved this pattern... I cut into my favorite fabric for it!  

Next up...Greenstyle's Jillian Top and Sports Bra.  
Sizes Included: 
XXS to 3XL

Outer tank, inner tank, bandeau and sports bra, all in one pattern!

I have worked with Greenstyle more than once and everytime it is such a pleasure and so much fun!  If you ever have the chance, jump at it! I was the freakishly tall tester on this pattern so it took me a lot of work to get this one right but it was worth it.  I love the fit and as soon as this weather gets warmer, I intend to be in a lot of these!

And then... I made jeans! Actual real life jeans! Or rather The Real Deal Jeans by Winter Wear Designs!

Sizes Included:

Full Length jeans
Board Shorts
Shorts with 5 inch inseam
Shorts with 3 inch inseam

I only recently started working with Suzanne and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers to work with.  She takes the testing process in steps and is always available to help us and ensure she is putting out a polished and professional final product. And so I knew I could trust her to help me make a pair of jeans.  And I did! This pattern comes with a ton of instructions to ensure you are getting the perfect fit and detailed instructions on how to construct the scary zipper fly and making some unique pockets!  Go make yourself a pair of jeans!

And last but certainly not least The Everyday Essentials by EYMM.


Sizes Included:

Included are a comfortable sleeping bra, a cami, 2 different length gowns that can be made as nightgown or has a full slip and chemise as well as 2 different length half slips.  3 different cup sizes are available for each size of the bodice, as well as a variety of finishes for the neck, arms and hem including knit binding, elastic and lace. There are also instructions for making the whole set maternity friendly!


Working with Kymy from EYMM is like winning the lotto, I am always wayyyyyy to excited when she picks me!  But I am never unhappy with the finished product and this is no different.  I even felt comfortable taking pictures in my undergarments.  It took me like 2 hours to even decide what to make but I intend to make all of the pieces and use them regularly.  I just can't get enough of all of the options in this pattern and I don't understand why you wouldn't go buy it right now?

So ladies, those are my testers and like you, I still have to shop so click the link and go BUNDLE UP! And then stop back in and let me know what you got and what you think!
