One Thimble Blog Tour- Calla Lily Crop Top and Oswald Bow Tie

teaser1

I’m here with another fantastic blog tour.  The newest issue of One Thimble is here and it’s full of sewing goodness.  I was excited to sew up two of the 10 pdf patterns that come in this issue.

This cute guy got his first real bow tie- the Oswald, Williams, and Pond Bow Tie Set.

And this little miss is loving her new Calla Lily Crop Top.

With back to school on our brains we had a blast styling our photo shoot.

The bow tie set is so fun!! With three style options, it was hard to pick.  We went with the pointed corner Oswald.  There are five different sizes so all the gentlemen in your life can sport matching ties.

I sewed up a size medium.  He loves that it’s not overwhelmingly huge but I might make him the next size up in the future.  He was eager to wear it to church and looked so handsome!

I let my kids pick out their fabrics and I love that he picked this simple gingham!

This little one had her heart set on yellow pom poms and while they’re a little crazy for me her sense of style kills me and I was happy to oblige.  The classic plaid cotton is from Hobby Lobby.

The Calla Lily is a classic top with a little flair.  I love the high low hem and the button/snap placket in the back.  It’s fully lined and you can use the lining for a cute contrast placket.  School bus yellow KAM snaps make it easy on/off.  The options for hem trim are endless- ruffles, lace, whatever your heart desires!

We styled it with a tank underneath so that it will be school dress code worthy.

These two are the family clowns- always laughing and keeping us all on our toes.  A photo shoot with the two of them was an experience to say the least.
