Holiday Sewing Inspiration: Sugarplum Apron

Sugarplum Apron

Sometimes starting out with a simple sewing project is only the very beginning of what fun can lay ahead. I recently bought some inexpensive tea towels, and after looking at them, thought, these would be so cute as little Aprons. With that in mind I set out to make a brother and sister set of aprons using the Sugarplum Apron pattern.

To create the boys apron, I omitted the ruffled section of the ‘skirt’, and simply cut the width of the apron 2’’ wider than the bodice width, and did not gather it. No other changes to the pattern, it was really straightforward and the result was great!

They came together so quickly and easily, and after telling my friend what fun I had transforming the tea towels to aprons, she decided to make some for her girls too. We of course decided we must have a Christmas baking afternoon, and the plan was hatched to do some cupcake and biscuit baking.

Cue Mariah Carey, Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra Christmas songs, and a whole lot of dipping fingers in mixture and fun in general – a simple sewing idea turned into an afternoon of fun, Christmas spirit and wonderful memories.


Happy Holiday Sewing!!

Boston and Nottingham 

Fall sewing projects for little ladies would not be complete without a sweet dress and pinafore set! Nottingham Dress and Top pattern was part of our Back to School collection and the Boston Dress and Top pattern released at the height of the summer. Both styles are gorgeous on their own, but have you thought how lovely these two designs would look when paired together? These dresses turn into a completely new outfit when the Boston dress is worn as a pinafore over the Nottingham dress.  Classic, vintage, pretty and fun!

Both patterns are designed for woven fabrics. The Boston features a button up front, criss cross straps and a pretty front sash. And if your munchkin loves pockets the pattern includes optional pockets as well. 

Nottingham pattern includes simple, ruffle and double ruffle hem options and various sleeve styles from short sleeve with elastic casing (pictured) to a long sleeve with a knit cuff, just to mention two of them.

Add socks, knee highs or tights, pretty little shoes or boots depending on the weather. There are endless styling possibilities making Nottingham and Boston perfect for every season whether worn on their own or as a set!

Oxford Blouse & Astoria Overalls

With the change of seasons we inevitably start to think about what our little ones would like to be wearing in the coming months. Where as summer wardrobes are filled with dresses and tops & shorts sets, when cooler temperatures arrive it is time start lengthening those sleeves and pants legs!

For a mixture of classic yet cute style your girls will love to pair their Oxford Blouse with the Astoria Overalls

The pretty Oxford Blouse comes as a pattern set with the Oxford Skirt. It includes 3 different sleeve lengths; short, 3/4 and long, making it an ideal blouse pattern for a year round wear.

The trendy overalls pattern comes in two styles, shorts and flare pants. See how amazing the overalls look when sewn in floral fabric!
