Willow& Co made me spoiled with my sewing! I've been sewing several patterns from their collection and although from different designers they are all very good. Very clear and easy to follow instructions and the fit is perfect on my little ones. I've sewed also some Oliver+S, perfect patterns. Everything has an amazing final result and I've learnt a lot, every time I sew one of their patterns I learn something, but we all know that Oliver + S is perfect. Also sewed some other indie patterns and so far so good... Until my last project I was very eager to buy indie patterns and have built an impressive collection. But now I'm very disappointed... :-(
I've been waiting for a special fabric to arrive by mail, was kind of difficult to find it here in
Europe and I paid
more than I normally do for fabric, anyway, the fabric arrived and I grabbed
the September tunic pattern from Too Sweets (bought with the Perfect Pattern
Parcel). My daughter is a tall 7 months baby, and I want the clothes to fit
during summer, so I've been sewing for her 12M size, room to grow but not
terrible big, looks ok (as you can see in my previous posts, all 12M lately). I've
made the 12M and her arms didn’t fit, seam ripper in hand and lets tear it
apart. The size up was 2T, let's make a size 2, if too big she can wear it
another time, well surprisingly its ok on the arms, no room at all to grow, and
on the back I had to make narrower button placket, because with the 1 1/2 Inch
like stated in the pattern the size 2T would be to small and wouldn't button up! That’s
only with me or did it happened with anyone else?
I’m sorry for such a long post, but I had to put it out… Now I need something to make me happy with sewing again! I will definitely go look for some nice from willow&Co or Oliver+S pattern to sew, it’s guaranteed that I will have a nice time putting it together and the end result will be more than ok!
But I have to admit that I love the end result, and my Little Teresinha looks really cute :-) Some pictures of the September Tunic SIZE 2T for a 7 months (and it's small)!!!!!
