Hi, it's Chelsea, designer and blogger for GYCT Designs.  Today I am sharing this cute Summertime Dreams Dress from My Treasured Heirlooms.  I love the simple design of this pattern.  It allows for you to be creative in your fabric choices and adding embellishments.  It is also reversible, which is a great way to save some time but have 2 different looks.  Come check out more pictures and my full review of the Summertime Dreams Dress over on the blog.

Hi, Jennifer here from Stitch Upon a Time.
I am thrilled to participate in the Designer's Pattern Swap and even more excited that I was placed with Terra's Treasures. I've been a fan of Terra's designs for a while. Now that I've tried them, I wish I had sooner! I chose to sew the Suburban Basic Tee, which I paired with the Long Beach Board Shorts to make a full swimsuit. A basic t shirt pattern should be a staple in every sewists pattern collection. With it's superb fit and instructions, this will be the one I recommend to everyone. (It's on sale for $5 through 4/25 here!)At the pool, we received numerous compliments for his cute outfit! If you'd like to see more pictures from this pattern, visit my Facebook page. I'll also share there how I altered the pattern slightly to be better suited as a swimming shirt and places to buy swimwear fabric.


I'm so excited to be involved in the Designer Swap and even more excited that I had the opportunity to sew up TWO of the Gracious Threads patterns! I had the pleasure of sewing up the Lazy Days Lounge Pants and the Petra Dress and Tee. 
My 'almost' 10 year old daughter absolutely loves how this outfit turned out. It is so comfortable and stylish. Just the kind of everyday clothes that I LOVE to sew for my children! Come over to my blog to read more about the fabrics I used and see more photos. :)

This was my first attempt, but the well written pattern gave me results I am quite happy with. For more pictures, and full review, head on over to Gracious Threads. 1nimble fish doll-7
