Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic Review

Girl Charlee's first sewing pattern, sewn by Skirt Fixation

Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic and Dress Pattern

One of our sewing goals in 2014 was to learn to sew with knit fabric.  Girl Charlee gave us the opportunity to sew with knit fabric again when they asked us to be pattern testers for their very first pattern, the Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic and Dress Pattern.

Girl Charlee Tunic Pattern

We’ve done pattern testing for several companies now but this is probably our favorite pattern test to date because not only did Girl Charlee provide us with the Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic and Dress Pattern but also with the fabric to sew it!  This pattern was a delightful & quick sew.

Girl Charlee Tunic Pattern

Besides sewing with knit we conquered another skill while doing the Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic and Dress Pattern; sewing with elastic thread.  Years ago we tried a fun DIY tutorial that used elastic thread.  The end result was a total flop because the elastic thread didn’t work.

But do you see that ruching around the collar and sleeves?  That is the result of elastic thread, thanks to Girl Charlee’s super easy to follow instructions.  The Girl Charlee Vintage Puff Sleeve Tunic and Dress Pattern comes in both tunic and dress lengths, and we will definitely be sewing some more in the near future.

Girl Charlee’s pattern says this is a vintage look and we love the way it turned out. To mimic the vintage look Allegra styled Annie’s hair in little rolled waves like those of bygone bombshells.

Because of the little birds on the fabric, we gave Annie a birdcage and found birdnest to play with.

Although we loved sewing this pattern with knit fabric, our next version of this pattern could very well be from woven fabric, because 90% of the fabric in our stash is wovens.

Karina Skirt {All The Skirts: Spit Up & Stilettos}

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

Today we present you the first skirt in the All The Skirts: Spit Up & Stilettos edition, the Karina Skirts.  This is one skirt you are going to want to have in your closet!  The Karina Skirt is a knit skirt, and it is lined.  This makes it slimming and comfortable.  Like secret pajamas!

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

We chose to make a sporty version of the Karina Skirt by adding a striped racing stripe.

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

Ever since we saw Liz’s version of this, we wanted to make one.  Aria tried this skirt on and was instantly happy!  Making this skirt made me really happy because it was so easy to make.  The directions were very easy to follow, complete with picture instructions for each step.  The pattern says it’s not just easy, it’s super easy, and we found that to be so TOTALLY true!

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

A little about the fabric.  We’ve vowed to sew all the Spit Up & Stilettos skirts from our stash since all their patterns are free.  Since we are just beginning to sew more with knits, we didn’t have too much in our stash, so we started with a knit maternity skirt (we used the waistband here) and refashioned it into the Karina Skirt.  If you’ve never sewn with knits before, this skirt would be the perfect place to start.  Really!

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

One word of warning about this skirt…it is tight fitting!  So if you want a va-voom date night skirt, this is the one that will draw his eye!

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

Of course Aria is too young to even think about dates, but the pattern goes down to XS, so it was perfect to make a sporty skirt for her.  I did lengthen the Karina Skirt by about 4 inches, per her request and to make it more suitable for fall and winter wearing.

Karina Skirt for All The Skirts series

Now we want you to enjoy All The Skirts: Spit Up & Stilettos, so we’ve made a way for you to play along.  Enter the giveaway and grab one of those free Spit Up & Stilettos patterns and get sewing!

How to Add a Woven Lining to the Hood of the Bimaa Sweater

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

We snagged a Bimaa Sweater pattern during the Friday Fiver over at Crafterhours, and immediately got to sewing!  Aria had a birthday recently, and so I made her a whole outfit.  That skirt will be coming soon, but for today, I want to show you the Bimaa Sweater, and explain how I added a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.  You see, LouBeeDoo Clothing, who makes the Bimaa, recommends avoiding the temptation of making the hood from woven material because it won’t stretch and fit over their head.  So if you want to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater, you have to do it like this tutorial.

How to Add a Woven Lining to the Hood of the Bimaa Sweater

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

 

Step 1: Mark a line across your hood pattern piece, about 1/4 inch above the jutting out part, as shown.

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

Step 2: Cut out the section below the line from knit fabric, adding 1/4 inch to the top.  Cut out the section above the line from woven fabric, adding a 1/4 inch to the bottom for seam allowance.

Step 3:  Sew the two pieces together.

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

Proceed with the pattern directions.  You can cut the middle piece from woven fabric without following the steps above because there will be enough stretch from the knit on the hood pieces.

I really admire all the versions of the Bimaa Sweater that I’ve seen, and can’t wait to make the cowl neck version and the shawl collar version too.  I just wish the Bimaa Sweater came in adult sizes!

How to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater.

The only other change I made to the Bimaa Sweater pattern was to lengthen the cuffs.  I’m sure Aria gets her long arms from me!  When she tried on the Bimaa Sweater she loved it except the sleeves were too short, so the easiest thing was to lengthen the cuffs.  And she thinks long cuffs look better on her than short cuffs.  I tend to agree with her for larger sizes.

So now you know how to add a woven lining to the hood of the Bimaa Sweater!  Have fun!

The Bimaa Sweater is very fast and easy to sew…as long as you don’t have to go back and add sleeve length!  But even then, I made the Bimaa Sweater in just one afternoon.

Julia Cardigan for Selfish Sewing Week

Julia Cardigan

 

Julia Cardigan by Mouse House Creations

The last piece of my outfit made for Selfish Sewing Week is the Julia Cardigan.  We won 2 patterns from Mouse House Creations during Sewabration of Womanhood, and the Julia Cardigan was our automatic first choice!  Then I held onto it until I saw this fabric at Walmart, and knew they were going to be a perfect pair.  I bought 3 yards of the super lightweight knit fabric, and sent one to Karly during Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition’s Knit Week.  When I went to cut out the Julia, I realized, as Angela commented yesterday, that I was going to need another yard to be able to make myself the long sleeve version.  Because I didn’t have enough time to go to get more fabric just then, I decided to try and make a vest version of the Julia and add sleeves later.  But then I laid out the pieces as shown on the recommended layout, and realized if I disobeyed the recommendation, flipped over the front pattern piece face down, flipped the collar piece end for end, turned the cuff pieces 90 degrees, and slid the rest of the pieces around, I could get the whole thing out of 2 yards!  This included adding 3 inches to the sleeves (you know, because I am 6 feet tall and have a 6 foot wingspan also!)  I could have lengthened the front and back 1 or 2 inches also, which I will do next time.  (Yes, next time…this one is a winner!)

back of Julia Cardigan

But the Julia Cardigan covers my shirt in the back, so it all works out for this outfit.  I took a gamble, not knowing if I would ruin the whole Julia Cardigan cutting it out that way, but it turned out just fine!

Julia CardiganOne thing I was careful to do was match the stripes everywhere and I’m so happy with the results.

Julia Cardigan striped cuff

I like the look of the stripes on the cuffs running the other way, it gives them sort of a modern flair.  So there you have it!  An entire outfit, sewn just for ME!!!

What did you make yourself during Selfish Sewing Week?  What are you going to make yourself next?

How to Add a Lining to the Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt

How to add a lining to the Jocole Yoga A-Line skirt

How to add a lining to the Jocole Yoga A-Line skirt

As I promised yesterday, I have a tutorial for how to add a lining to the Jocole Yoga A-line skirt.

  • When you are cutting out the skirt, cut out an additional front and back pieces on the fold of knit lining fabric, but cut the lining fabric 3-6 inches shorter than your finished length of the skirt.
  • Complete step 1 and 2 of the lining fabric also, making a tube of the lining.
  • Before step 13, slip your lining inside your skirt, wrong sides together, matching up the top edges.
  • When you pin and stitch in steps 13 and 14, be sure to catch your lining fabric also.  You will be sewing four layers together, the lining, the skirt, and two waistband layers.

That’s it!  Just a few easy steps, and you can add a lining to the Jocole Yoga A-line skirt.   So now you can use some of the totally awesome, sheer fabrics that are on the market right now.

Like this awesome light mocha rose matte stretch lace knit fabric from Girl Charlee.

Or this burnout knit we saw the other day at JoAnn Fabrics.

Now for the other part of what we promised you yesterday.  How to downsize the Jocole Yoga A-Line skirt for a tween.  Here’s where it gets kind of math-y, so if you want to just skip down to the giveaway, we forgive you!

Take your tween’s measurements for waist and hips and enter them into this equation:

Tween’s size/Pattern size measurement= Decimal Number

Take the first 2 numbers of the decimal and set your printer to scale to that size.  For example:

Aria’s waist measurement is 24 inches.  The pattern measurement for size medium is 28 inches.  Divide these two numbers and you get .85714286  The first two numbers round to 86, so I enter 86% in my printer’s scale option.  To determine the proper length, I recommend just printing out the pattern and measuring the length on the child you want to make it and add on the hem allowance and make the skirt that finished length.  Or else you can compute your percentage from above and apply that to the pattern’s finished length and do some more math!  You choose.

One last thing before the giveaway, please notice how well we matched up the ruffles at the side seams.  Thank you!  Now onto the giveaway.  This is the last day to enter the giveaway for 2 free Jocole PDF patterns of your choice.  We’ll see you tomorrow for information about my top in this picture!

Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt Review

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt

If you’ve just arrived here on the Jocole Blog Tour, Hi and Welcome!

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt

We are so delighted to have the opportunity to make the Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt.  I think this is my favorite skirt I’ve ever made in all the skirts I’ve made in my lifetime!

Jocole Yoga A-line skirt

And to think I came so close to not making one for myself!  You see, it was like this: late one night I decided to make the Jocole Yoga A-Line skirt for the Jocole pattern tour.  (Yes we were given this pattern, but we would gladly pay twice the price for a skirt so wonderful!)

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt

So anyway, it was a dark and stormy night, and I was tired but everyone was asleep and I knew this was going to be a quick sew.  So as usual, I printed out my first pattern piece, checked the test square, and when all looked good, I set off cutting and sewing.  Now I’ll let you in on a little fact that I didn’t learn for another hour or so.  My printer settings were off, but I measured from the edge of the 3 inch block to the edge of the 10 cm block so it looked like it was 3 inches.  I was making a skirt that was 24% too small since my printer was set at 86%.

Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

About an hour later my new skirt was finished and ready to be tried on.  The skirt was so tight it looked like I’d painted it on with a paintbrush.  On my post baby body… Let’s change the subject, shall we?

Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

I returned to JoAnn fabrics the next day and found a sparkly knit orange fabric.  This knit is almost sweatshirt weight.  Think about your favorite old college sweatshirt that you wore and wore and wore out.  This is that kind of knit.  Plus is has little sparkles all over it!

Back of Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt

Armed with new fabric and new enlightened measuring method, I started over again.  One quick hour later, viola, my new favorite skirt was born.  The only change I made to the  Jocole Yoga Aline Skirt pattern was to lengthen it by three inches.  The pattern goes up to forty inches long for tall ladies, but I’m what they refer to as ultra tall.  I may have made this skirt a teeny bit too long, but that’s a heavenly change!!!

Jocole Yoga A-Line skirt tween size

Aria was delighted to inherit the first, tiny skirt.  Come back to the blog tomorrow to find out how I added a lining to her Jocole yoga a line skirt, and also how you could make one for a tween.  Not accidentally.  On purpose.  Because you meant to.  Ahem.

2 Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirts

I just love it when mistakes turn into treasures!  Looking on the bright side, Aria got a new skirt and I got the creamiest, most buttery knit yoga skirt ever!  I forgot to tell you one of my favorite things about the finished skirt.  I made the tall 16″ fold over waistband, and I love the privacy it gives me when I use the option of having it  unfolded for added coverage while nursing the baby!

Birthday Skirt Refashion

knit skirt refashion

knit skirt refashion

For my birthday this year, mom got me this skirt from Kmart. It was nice, lovely colors, great hang, but had one flaw. It was a couple sizes larger than my waist. Mom said she waited until it was on sale, and by then they were out of my size, but she thought we could do a quick skirt refashion.  I did want to wear it, it’s a great, modest church or ‘out-and-about’ skirt. Plus, it’s really comfortable. We decided to do a quick fix with the elastic, but upon further inspection, realized that it was sewn a bit weird. The elastic was sewn into the waistband, instead of just floating around in it. That meant I had to spend an hour taking out the stitches. Mom told me only to take out the stitches across the back so the front would still look the same and the gathers would be back there!  After that, mom pulled out the elastic from the inside and took in several inches.  Then she sewed an elastic casing because she said that was going to be easier than stitching it back together the way it was.  Whatev!  Just as long as it would fit and look good, I didn’t care about the whole mechanics of the thing!

quick skirt refashion

Now it fits much better, as you can see.

Here you can see the slight gathering across the back.  Just in case you are wondering, this is one of the things we sewed along with the knit ladies during Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition!

I styled it pretty plain, but I hope to dress it up like these skirts found on Pinterest.

Knit Maxi skirt

I love this skirt by Sew Much Ado, and how they tastefully paired it with a black shirt and bright cardigan.  Mine could be paired with a bright cardigan too!

Carissa Knits

This maxi by Carissa Knits is also gorge, and I love the idea of wearing mine with a denim jacket.

Knit maxi idea

The last way would be cute and simple, with a tee and a belt. Anyway, just a easy-peasy skirt refashion, fixing a skirt so that it’s now something that I will actually wear. A lot. Like really.

Call Ajaire’s Knit Fabric Swap Challenge

This is the last day of the Knit fabric sewing creations made from fabric the 4 contestants swapped. They each sent and received 2 yard of fabric and then sewed it up! Their only stipulation was that the fabric be knit fabric. Today, Ajaire from Call Ajaire is here to show you what she created:

Hi guys!  I’m Ajaire from Call Ajaire and I can’t wait to show you what I made with this knit swap fabric!

Charity from Say Grr Sewing was charged with sending me the fabric for the swap and in her note she said that she had purchased the floral and the yellow and was a bit disappointed in the quality of the yellow when it arrived so she threw in the white at the last minute.  I really like the color of the yellow and wanted to use it even if it was a little thin.  However, the three fabrics sat in a pile in my sewing room for ages as I couldn’t figure out what to make with them.  Then I got the idea to add another color to the mix.

I tried a few different solids like green, brown, and blue, but gasped when I put this variegated orchid knit next to the others.  The orchid did something to the floral that pleased my eye.  I knew immediately that I would make another Paneled Sunsuit for Bean with a cardi to complete the look.

For the Paneled Sunsuit I used two layers of the orchid on the bottom since it was also a little thin, and just like the first one I made, the bodice is fully lined.  The white fabric was used for the lining.  I added a strip of the yellow as a faux piping at the top of the bodice to tie the fabrics together.

The cardigan I chose to make is the Aster Cardigan from LBG Studio through Willow & Co.  I have been eyeing that pattern since Vanessa designed it for her season of Project Run & Play.  It’s a really sweet shape and perfect for layering.  The pattern does not disappoint.  It’s even better than I expected and so easy to follow.  The inside finishes are nice and clean which I really like for the insides of a top layering piece that might be unbuttoned or removed.

It turns out the yellow fabric is perfect for a cardi.  It is a great light layer and I love how it looks with the pop of white faux piping.

I am so pleased with how this outfit came together.  Bean seemed really comfortable in it and the sunsuit is super cute.  The cardi will be worn a lot this fall and I was really happy to use that yellow fabric after all!  I definitely declare this knit challenge a success!  Stop by my blog to see more fun pics!

That little romper is so cute, and the color combinations are fabulous.  That adorable little cardi is simply icing on the cake!  Fantastic ensemble for sure!  Now let’s review the four creations submitted by our knit contestants:

SayGrrSewing’s Knit Fabric Swap Challenge

knit fabric swap for #challengecreate

This is the third day of the Knit fabric sewing creations made from fabric the 4 contestants swapped. They each sent and received 2 yard of fabric and then sewed it up! Their only stipulation was that the fabric be knit fabric. Today, Charity from SayGrrSewing is here to show you what she created:

I’m extremely excited to be here participating in Challenge Create today! Karly from Paisley Roots sent me two fun fabrics:

knit fabric swap

   My daughter immediately fell in love with the button fabric, and requested a dress. I spent some time sketching to determine how best to put the striped and button fabric together. I finally decided to keep them separate, and add some solids so I’d have enough fabric. Once I had my designs planned, I began drafting. For my daughter, I designed a flowy dress with an asymmetrical waist seam, ruffles and lettuce edging everywhere, and small details of ruching, embroidery, and a button near the neckline.

knit fabric swap challenge

   This dress truly was a challenge to make the pattern for… since I was making an asymmetrical bodice and a half-circle skirt, I had to do a lot of editing to make the hem level for the muslin I made. When it was perfect, I cut it out of the button fabric and some coordinating brown.

knit fabric swap for #challengecreate

   I’d ended up with one full week to sew everything, after drafting and muslins… and that is when my sewing machine broke. Unfortunately, the only repairman around here who can deal with computerized machines was on vacation. 4 days later, I found a second-hand machine and got to sewing, leaving me only 2 days to sew and one for photos. My serger also threw a fit, and as a result I had to use tissue paper and starch on EVERY seam. That’s why, after all that perfectionistic muslining, the hem is not level. The side seam on the skirt was my first, I didn’t use tissue, and it stretched badly… and I didn’t realize it until I had the dress mostly sewn and was trying it on my daughter. Machine troubles aside, it came together relatively easily. The embroidery was surprisingly quick and I love the result.

knit fabric swap challenge

   Next up was a top for me. I decided on a tied collar and sleeves. I didn’t have time to make muslins for those after all the machine trouble, so I just winged it and I’m really happy they turned out well. I was prepared with the starch this time, and finished off the entire can, as well as several pages of tissue paper.

   The stripes were abysmally slow, since I pinned every stripe, but for my first time ever sewing with stripes I think I did a decent job of matching them. I’m wearing it with a knit and stretch lace skirt that I also made, and my husband’s belt that is about 6 inches too big for me. 😉 In retrospect, using a thin, stretchy knit for me probably wasn’t the best idea. It’s quite clingy and highlights everything. I’ll still get a lot of wear out of it though!

knit fabric swap challenge

One more thing: my camera, computer, and email also rebelled. Something really didn’t want me to complete this challenge!

For more photos of these garments, and even more jabbering, head over to SayGrrSewing. I’ll see you there! =)

We hope everyone is standing up and applauding with us for this jaw dropping knit fabric ensemble!  For the first time sewing with stripes, Charity’s work sure looks like she should be teaching a class!  How fantastic!  Today is the last day to link your knit creations (up to 3 projects) to the Knit Fabric Sew Along Link Party!  The winner is going to get a $25 shopping spree at Nature’s Fabrics.  And come back tomorrow for some more knit fabric fabulousness from our last contestant!

Paisley Roots Knit Fabric Swap Challenge

This is the second day of the Knit fabric sewing creations made from fabric the 4 contestants swapped. They each sent and received 2 yard of fabric and then sewed it up! Their only stipulation was that the fabric be knit fabric. Today, Karly from Paisley Roots is here to show you what she created:

Knit happens to be my most favorite fabric to sew with. It’s comfy, it’s forgiving, heck, what is NOT to love about it??
SarahLynn (aka Scary) from The Shaffer Sisters got me this amazing, AMAZING knit fabric.
I am in love with this stuff. It’s so incredibly soft and the perfect medium! I couldn’t wait to cut into it. Although a part of me just wanted to wrap myself up in it every night…..
I had an idea of what I wanted to make so I got to work.
My first outfit was for Zoe. I drafted a dress inspired by one I had seen on Pinterest.
The back had a cut out heart shape and I couldn’t help it!
Next was Paisley’s dress. I drafted a colorblock dress based off the pattern I made for Zoe’s.
Along with the knit I received from Sarahlynn I also added in some striped Saint James Interlock Knit I won a while ago from Willow & Co. This stuff matches the heavenliness of the stuff SarahLynn got me.
Then of course with my girls, if I make for one I basically have to make for all, so Aevarie got an outfit too.
She has tons of dresses, so I went with a shirt and shorts this go round.
With the shirt I started with the Uptown/Downtown Dress by Terrilin Collections, but I didn’t add facing and made it into a hi-low shirt. I have so many more plans with this dress.
The shorts are the FREE Summer Shorties by Baste & Gather.
I also had to make the girls matching headbands to tie them all into each other.
Seriously, it is SOOOO hard to get all 3 to cooperate at the same time in pictures!
Mostly we get pictures…

You can check out my blog for the heart tutorial and a some more pictures!

Well, how’s that for some awesome knit loveliness?  These girls are so lucky to have a famous seamstress as their mom!  Those outfits look like they will be worn every day for the rest of the summer.  How about you?  Are you going to link up to 3 projects to the Knit Fabric Sew Along Link Party?  The winner is going to get a $25 shopping spree at Nature’s Fabrics.  Go ahead and give it your best shot!  And come back tomorrow for some more knit fabric fabulousness from our third contestant!
