One Thimble Issue 15 is here! If you’ve been following me for awhile you know I just love when a new issue comes out. I’m always so excited to see what each issue has in store- so many different designers and contributors that always keep things fresh and fun.
I was happy to hop on the tour and sew up two patterns from this latest issue.
I did Thread Faction #116, a comfy unisex v-neck cardigan. It comes in sizes 2-10 and is a super quick sew. I let her pick between buttons, snaps, or a bow closure and she went with the ribbon. I love the little feminine detail it adds and how it made the project even faster!
I also sewed up the Miriam Skirt from OUSM. It comes in sizes 12m-8 years and has a high waist with big pleats. I did a size 7 with 8 length but totally should have added a few more inches- doh! She’s off the size chart height-wise so it’s much shorter than intended. I’m calling it ‘vintage-length’ 😉 The skirt came together so quickly too. I added the exposed zipper- I couldn’t help but use this cute polka dot one I’ve had in my stash forever.
She had a Paris-themed birthday party to go to after this shoot and won ‘Best Parisian Outfit’ at the party. She loved how chic she felt. She had requested a stripe shirt for the party and this was perfect paired with the floral skirt and knee highs.
Totally French school-girl esque, right?!
This issue is chock full of goodness- 10 pdf patterns and 29 sewing articles. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect afternoon- sitting in the backyard with a lemonade and the latest issue?!
