.:Sew Fab Pattern Sale–Piko Top:.

** I am an affiliate for the Sew Fab Pattern Sale. This post contains affiliate links.

Another day, another fabulous pattern from the Sew Fab Pattern Sale!

This time, I did some sewing for ME. I have never ventured into much sewing for myself until recently, and I have to say – I am loving it! And the Piko Top is amazing. I might be a little in love with it. And I might have already purchased more fabric to make myself another one.

The Piko Top is a flowy knit top, and the pattern comes with different sleeve variations. You can also do variations on the length if you like! I love how loose and flowy it is; it is super comfortable! The Piko Top also features a hi-lo hem if you choose, and I did. I love hi-lo hems, and this top is no exception!

You know what else is great about the Piko Top? It is excellent at providing room for growing baby bellys!

I love this pattern and can’t wait to make myself another top!

.:Sew Fab Pattern Sale–Sweet Tea Shorties & Tennis Skort:.

** I am an affiliate for the Sew Fab Pattern Sale. This post contains affiliate links.

I’m excited to share two more patterns with you today from the Sew Fab Pattern Sale!

First up is the Tennis Skort. This is a great knit pattern. You can have fun mixing prints, or just keeping it all one fabric. Either way, you’re sure to get great results!

Another thing that I love about this pattern is that the shorts are built in (hence the name skort!) My girls love to wear skirts and dresses, and I love that they can play comfortable and modestly wearing their new skorts.

Up next are the Sweet Tea Shorties. This is another great knit pattern, and I’m in love. The ruffles are so sweet, and I can just imagine my girls wearing these under a twirly top or dress. Wouldn’t that be the cutest?

These are both great patterns for the little ladies in your life. Skirts and ruffles, what more could a little girl want?

.:Sew Fab Pattern Sale–Norah Dress & Tunic:.

** I am an affiliate for the Sew Fab Pattern Sale and this post contains affiliate links.

Are you loving seeing some of the looks created from the Sew Fab Bundle? I sure am!

Today I thought I’d share with you the Norah Dress that I made. This pattern is awesome. It has variations for dress or tunic lengths, as well as different sleeve and collar options. You can see that I opted for a pretty simple look.

I made this up for my daughter to wear as a church dress, though it could easily double for school as well. I love the simple, classic fit of the sleeveless version that I made.

The dress closes in back with a button, and the bodice is nice and lined – two of my favorite features on a dress! I used a cotton for this dress, and it is a great way to show off a favorite fabric print.

This dress has a great shape, and my daughter didn’t want to take it off after church on Sunday! That says something!

.:Sew Fab Bundle–Ruffled Bustle Top:.

** I am affiliate for the Sew Fab Pattern Sale and this post contains affiliate links.

So by now I’m sure you’ve been seeing lots of posts about the amazing patterns included in the Sew Fab Pattern Sale. If you are wanting to pick up this amazing bundle, you only have this week to do it! Where else are you going to get 20 patterns for just $30? It’s a great deal!

But in case you are on the fence, I thought I would feature some of the items that I have made using patterns from the bundle. Naturally, starting with my contribution to the bundle – the Ruffled Bustle Top.

This is a great pattern for mixing different prints of fabric. Which is one of my very favorite things to do! The front of the top is more simple, while the back is where the ruffles come in.

The Ruffled Bustle Top is versatile; you can wear it in the summer with either nothing underneath or a short sleeved shirt, or all through the winter with a long sleeved shirt underneath. Want to make it into a dress? Just adjust the length measurements and you’ve got yourself one darling dress! There are lots of different things you can do with this pattern!




The back has elastic sewn in to give it a more snug fit, and the straps come to the front and attach with buttons.



My testers came up with some wonderful versions of this pattern!

As you can see, it pairs great with leggings, or a pair of shorts. Ruffle pants or ruffle shorts would give it an extra ruffley look!





I’ll be featuring more patterns from the Sew Fab Pattern Sale bundle during the week, but if you are ready to get your bundle, go ahead and click here!
