Today the patterns we’re featuring are the Up Beet Tee & Dress and Turnip Up Trousers & Shorts. These patterns were designed by Celina of Petit a Petit & Family for the Project Run & Play capsule wardrobe collection called Project Farmer’s Market. Read about the D’Anjou Dress from this capsule wardrobe collection here. Read about the Banana Boat Tee and Soleil Skirt in this post. Read about the Jonagold Jumper from this collection here.
First of all, we sewed up an outfit for Lowell using these patterns. Let’s start with the Up Beet Tee we sewed for him. Now before getting started, we really must say the it’s almost impossible to describe the amazing genius of this pattern. It’s a raglan tee in back but a plain tee in front.
To achieve this look, the sleeve piece looks like a jig saw puzzle piece, but it goes together like a dream! Seriously, you just have to sew this pattern to truly appreciate it’s genius.
For the fabric I used striped mustard and white french terry fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. This was to be able to show off the fantastic lines of the pattern from the back! And you can see we snuck in some blueberry fabric for a pocket to keep with the Farmer’s Market theme.
The neck, sleeves and hem are all finished with a binding, and the pattern has instructions on how to make this either hidden or exposed. On Lowell’s shirt we made the neck and sleeves exposed for a pop of navy blue color, but make the hem band hidden.
While we’re on the topic of the Up Beet Tee & Dress pattern, of course we had to make the dress version too after we discovered how fun and easy it was to sew! The dress has a cocoon shape, and gathering at the front shoulders and across the back to make it feminine.
For Tina’s 1st Up Beet Dress, I used fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics Line Drawings Bluing (leftover from this skirt) for the main fabric and a pop of yellow triangle fabric for the bindings. I’m totally in love with this dress, and she is too.
Oh and pockets! I forgot to mention the pockets which Tina L.O.V.E.S. It was seriously challenging to get her to take her hands out of the pockets for pictures! I feel that way about pockets too, baby! We made the size 2 for her with 3/4 length sleeves. The sleeves are a bit longer than than for her right now, but at the rate my kids arms grow, they won’t be for long! The sleeves can also be made elbow length, or with a cap sleeve.
And of course we couldn’t stop at just one Up Beet Dress…so we made two! For the 2nd one, we used some Raspberry Creek Fabric knit leftover from this dress. On this one, we used some hot pink jersey for the neck binding and made the hem binding hidden.
I didn’t get a photo of the back, but the stripes show off the lines of the raglan sleeves on this dress too. Also, the high-low hem of this dress is adorable!!!
Suffice it to say Tina loves this dress too, and wears one of the other several times per week!
And the final garment we sewed is the Turnip Up Trousers & Shorts for Lowell. I don’t know if there’s a more perfect pair of pants for this guy. It’s almost like they were designed for him! You see, he insists on rolling up the hems of any pair of pants he wear! And that’s the way the Turnip Up Pants are designed! (Did you see the banana fabric we snuck in for the Hong Kong seam bindings?
Other features that make these pants perfect for this boy are double reinforced patches on the knees, pockets, and the knit waistband (hello comfort!)
For the main fabric, we used a light blue denim from our stash. You can find similar fabric here. And a similar banana fabric can be found here. I love the way he’s standing in the above photo, don’t you?
We’d encourage everyone to grab these patterns and sew them up just to increase your sewing prowess! Seriously, the construction of these patterns will delight you.
