It’s One Thimble time- wahoo!!! Best time of the year, amiright?!!
I love to join in the One Thimble blog tours and this time I’m excited to bring you a full review of the magazine. Not only is it packed full of gorgeous patterns for the whole family but it’s also a great resource for any sewist. The articles this month are so informative and the pictures are pure eye candy. I learned a couple new tips and tricks including how to fabric cover my KAM snaps that I obsessively add to everything!
The first pattern I sewed up is the lovely Trillium Tunic from Petite Stitchery. It’s full of options- tunic or maxi dress lengths, three sleeve choices and a plain or pieced bodice.
I love the little details with this top. The ruched 3/4 sleeve, the slightly gathered tunic skirt, the button placket, and pieced bodice all make for a beautiful shirt.
I used a rayon challis I picked up in LA for the main and some Art Gallery denim and a bit of lace. The bodice is the perfect place to use those scraps you’ve been hoarding!
The subtle high-low hem is just too pretty!
The Trillium is such a classic Sophie top and little sis looks totally cool in her Thread Faction #113 overalls.
Glancing through the magazine I loved the look of this pattern but wasn’t sure it would suit my kids. I was tempted to make them for my little guy until I had a vision for this look. I knew it would be perfect for my fun-lovin’, comfort seeking girly. She was overjoyed when she tried them on!
I used an incredibly soft french terry (from LA too) and some lace for the straps to girly it up a bit. I’m on a camo kick lately and bought a boatload of this fabric so everyone in the fam may end up with a little bit in their wardrobes!
I love how quickly these came together. I think they were done in under an hour from printing to sewing on the buttons- including the ridiculous amount of time it took to pick buttons!
I love that it’s a fun unisex pattern and comes in sizes 2-10. I think a little toddler belly would be adorable in these!
My lone back shot…
