Decklyn Jacket by Blaverry

Guys, I made a jacket!  Like a cute, zippered real life jacket!

And I took a million pictures to prove it!

Because when it looks this gorgeous on your little model you just can’t help yourself!

This is my second pattern from Blaverry.  I mentioned last month that I’ve been given the opportunity to work with Christie at Blaverry to help promote her fantastic pattern shop.

In return for a pattern I promise to spread the word about her patterns.  Great deal, right?

This month when she announced that the Decklyn jacket would be the pattern to promote I honestly was terrified!  I sew knits… like half hour, quick and painless projects.

While this jacket took a bit longer- two nap times shockingly, it was such a satisfying sew.

The pattern is impeccably made and the details are so good!

decklyn18

It’s fully lined and has the cutest zippered sleeve accents!

decklyn26

I used a cotton twill from Joann’s and a woven lace I picked up in LA.  The lining is something I’ve had in my stash for awhile.  Sophie picked it out and I think I’m rubbing off on her- I totally would have picked it for myself!

I love that this jacket will take her right into the spring!

The pattern instructions are fantastic and Christie is so readily available if you ever have any questions.  I just love that about pdf patterns- most designers love to help!

She loves it as much as I do- can you tell?!!

decklyn27

She said she will happily wear it every day!

I told you I took a million pictures!  As much as I love my quick sews, my favorite makes are always the ones that I take my time on.  The amazing details and perfect fit make this a project that I’ll be proud of for a long time.

Finn by Blaverry

finn1I love a good basic, simple pattern.  I’m not usually into ruffles and frills so when I had the chance to work with Christie at Blaverry I jumped at the opportunity.  Her style just fits with ours perfectly!

I sewed up the Finn top but extended the peplum to make it dress length.  I love the neck binding.  Such a nice, clean finish.

I used gorgeous Club Feathers from Raspberry Creek.

finn17

I think she likes it, wouldn’t you say?!!!

finn4

It’s got that comfy, twirliness that she loves but the cute curve of the peplum skirt adds a hipness that I adore.

We layered it with a jacket, boots, and scarf to wear while it’s cooler.  The pattern comes with a long sleeve option but I’m dreaming of Spring here.

Such a versatile dress!

finn11

I love that we can accessorize this fabric with any color to really make it pop.

It’s amazing what a little Taylor Swift can do to pump up a photo shoot!  I got a ton of wiggly, blurry picks cuz’ this girl likes to shake it, shake it off!
