It's that time again! I have the privilege of introducing our latest MashUP bundle to you! The Trendy Rose combines the Trendsetter Pattern from our very own Cassie, who designs for Little LIzard King, along with Gypsy Rose Dress from Foo Foo Threads Patterns. We've also thrown in the Rings of Ruffles Pants from LilyGIggle to as an add on to the bundle to make it even more versatile! There are so many options, you'll have something different to sew for every week of the year.
So what IS MashUP, you ask? MashUP is a specially curated collection that enables you to take the bodice from one dress or top pattern and add it to the skirt from another pattern. Sometimes you have to make an adjustment to the length on certain components, but we also include an exclusive tip sheet that helps you know where you can make those changes. We offer special bundle pricing in that you can get the two MashUP patterns for $10 (that's $5 each!) and add on the Rings of Ruffles pants for an additional $5! If you just want to buy one half of the MashUP, that's OK, too! You still get the tip sheet and the pattern for $7. If you were to buy these separately in the individual shops, it would cost you almost $25!
Let me give you the breakdown on the patterns. You get a span of 8 sizes with this mashup, including sizes 6M-8! There are 2 basic styles of bodice, that each have several options for sleeves or straps and other details. The skirts? There are a variety of ways you can sew those up as the patterns dictate, but then you can add or take away details or length to give you exactly what you need! The best part of this is that it's really a four season mash in that you can go from really strappy, to full length peasant sleeves.
I want to take a moment to thank our amazing sponsors for this project. The fabric is from the Cultivate line, designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics. This fabric has the most AMAZING feel and weight to it. It's soft and breezy, and really lends itself well to these tiers that can get bulky with the tuxedo ruffle and trims.
I also want to mention Renaissance Ribbons, who sent this amazing jacquard ribbon from their Winged and Sweet as Honey lines, also designed by Bonnie Christine. I love how the colors work across different collections! If you are looking for something smaller than yards of fabric to hoard....er...I mean....collect, this is the way to go. You'll thank me.
The ribbon also makes a beautiful addition to any headband!
Did I mention that Art Gallery also has KNITS?!?! They are the dreamiest and softest knits around. The white and eggplant stripes are from Bonnie's Cultivate line and the navy is from their line of solids. Just perfect for those Rings of Ruffles pants, which come in four lengths!
Serena and Kim from our review team also sewed up versions of the Trendy Rose and I know you'll love them, too!
Don't miss out on this great sale! It only lasts through May 25th, so don't wait!
Today I'm here to talk to you about a new (to me) trend in knit fabrics. Custom printing groups are popping up all over Facebook and other places in the internet and they are one of the best places to get the hottest knit fabrics that you really can't find anywhere else. Groups operate in different ways: some have fabric on hand and some do preorders, but the one thing they all have in common is that they give you the ability to find unique fabrics that are SO fun!Read More
