For my final version, I used this gorgeous green glitter print from Aurora Design Fabrics. I love how it seems to sparkle, even though it's just an illusion. I also used Aurora Designs white cotton Lycra for the trim. The green was one of my favorite colorways and was part of my surprise box from Brandi this month. I'm so glad I got a Christmas-y color, as now I have a shirt to wear for holiday things that is both comfortable and dressy. You can find the glitter custom round here: Aurora Design Fabrics Pre Orders but be sure and head over there very soon, as they will be closing on the 9th of December!
This sweater is one of the most adorable things I've seen so far this fall/winter. I love the sleeve detail. And the pattern is written so that it would be easy enough to switch it up and do no ties at all or ties on both shoulders, if you so choose (I think I'm going to try both at some point!) I've used ribbon for a tie, as well as fabric, and they both work as well as the other. Another option for the tie would be to use bias tape

Hi everyone! I've been going crazy, trying to keep track of all the pattern companies that are offering special deals for Black Friday, but I stumbled upon this post from Sara Soares (at Made by Sara), and wanted to share. It's the best list I've seen...ever! She has included each pattern designer who is running a sale and details (if they were available)! Thank you, Sara!
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! I was scouring the internet today, trying to find a list of great winter patterns to share with my friends in the Aurora Designs Facebook group....and I couldnt find one. It's not that I couldn't find one, rather, that I couldn't find one that featured indie designers. I found a few roundups featuring designers that I've never heard of and some featuring the big 4 commercial pattern companies. I decided quickly that this was something that had to be remedied. And despite the fact that I'm currently on the hook for 10 loads of laundry, a couple loads of dishes and sever final pics for pattern tests...I would be the one to do it. Today's roundup is all about women's patterns. I will be posting a follow up list of men's, then children's winter patterns some time in the next week or so. I'm not going to go in any particular order. No favorites here! If you have any question's or would like more info, please drop me a comment or message and I'll be happy to help!
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! It's been a little while since I did a post about Ellie and Mac. This isn't due to a lack of testing with them, simply life moving too fast for me. But tonight we wrapped up another fun test and I wanted to share it with you all! Say hello to the brand new women's Urban Legs Pattern!
